Accessibility issue for color blind people

Sat Apr 27, 2019 11:35 am

Really great program, but I have a ton of trouble with the "Feature Type" key and coloring. I'm partly color blind, red green, and the size of the boxes and colors used make it extremely difficult for me to use color to differentiate between features like "Internal Single Extrusion" and "Solid Layer". I'm surprised no accessibility features have been added, as otherwise it's a really impressive program.

Potential solutions:
-An alternate set of colors for people with colorblindness
-The ability to customize colors
-The ability to disable the display of certain features in "Preview Mode", the way one would remove layers in Photoshop.

If such a feature exists and I'm just missing it, let me know. Cheers!

I'm colour blind too and I have a further idea: how about when you click on the Feature Type in the list, it is highlighted in the preview screen - perhaps with the other features turning grey? Maybe allow multiple selections too? working in the same way? That is grey out deselected features?

I too struggle with the current system.
