Legibility of coloured fonts

Post by Anding » Mon Oct 07, 2019 8:15 am

I'm struggling with the legibility of coloured fonts on the black background (see below). The choice of monitor seems to make a big difference - legibility is worst on a 4k monitor and best in full HD.

Is there any way of changing the background colour except for using permanent print preview?

I think it's connected to the fact that my Windows settings have a (recommended) scaling of 150%. When I take a screenshot, the screenshot as save has more pixels than the area that I clipped it from
