  1. Dark-Theme: Address Toolbar Text Colour and Background Colour bug-1809


    In early October, after the (first) 1809 Update, I posted a thread relating to the Address Toolbar in the Taskbar, and the problems that I was having with it. Essentially, the background of the Toolbar had become almost the same colour as the text I typed in, and so the facility (which I use a lot) became unuseable. However, I found that by removing the Toolbar and then re-instating it fixed the problem. It is mildly irritating to have to do this.
    Since then I have intermittently tried to find out what was going on, because no-one else seemed to be experiencing the same problem.
    Yesterday I at last discovered the cause. *Biggrin The one thing that I had failed to take into account was my use of the newly introduced 'Dark Theme'. If I go to Settings>Personalisation>Colours> and under 'Choose your default app mode', click 'Light', the problem goes away. If I then re-set it to 'Dark', things are OK and it seems that problem is fixed. However, if I reman in 'Dark Theme' and then shut-down followed by a re-boot (automatically into Dark Theme, of course), the problem is back again.
    So, the 'fix' is not to use 'Dark Theme', which is a pity .........

    Text colour problem

    You can't change the text colours displayed separately, they are linked to the theme that you have in use. The only solutions are to choose a different theme in the display settings which has a text colour more suited to your chosen background image or
    to creat a theme of your own using something like the theme creator at
    www.zedge.net
    to create a theme with a colour scheme of your preferred choice.

    Dark-Theme: Address Toolbar Text Colour and Background Colour bug-1809

    N79 Standby text colour

    Unfortunately not, the colours of text and background throughout the phone UI are determined by the theme itself and not changeable by settings.



    You could try using some of the online theme creators such as the one at
    www.zedge.net
    to make a theme with similar images to your current one and select from their available colour combinations, but sometimes these don't offer you the variety of colours that you might need to work with particular background colours/images.
    It's a bit hit-and-miss, I'm afraid.
