Night Mode

Post by WA2SQQ » 03 Jan 2016, 00:54

In the evenings I enjoy operating with most of the lights in my shack turned off, using primarily focused LED lighting. It would be very nice to have a "night mode" where the screen colors were not so bright, or better yet if the screen colors could be user defined. LOG4OM's current screen colors are very bright in such environments.

Thank you for your consideration.

You could turn down the brightness of your computer display or if still to bright use this

It's not about the brightness, WHITE is just to starkly bright. Have you ever gone inside of an air control center or law enforcement dispatch center? All black backgrounds - decreases eye strain. There was something to be said about the old black background with greenish-yellow text. Actually our vision is most sensitive at 555nm - yellowish light emitted by fire flies.

Please consider his for a future enhancement. I'm certain that night time contest operators would enjoy it.

Actually it's not possible to change colors.
I can do that by modifying all screens, but from this time, everyone will have a dark scheme (that could be good, in any case)

I'll make some tests... but it's a big change so i'm usually starting a poll before those changes :)

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but I've good luck with a bit of software called f.lux.

I've used it on both mac and windows and find it helpful to adjust screen color at night and dimly lighted rooms

I would lend my support for such a modification but I think fully customisable pallette is overkill. Just a day/night switch would be good.

The problem with screen dimming is that it seems to affect both double screens and I have something else running on screen 2 which is already set to night mode. Dimming it will prevent good sight of screen 2.

By the way, last post in this thread was from 2016 and meanwhile Log4OM V1 is only in maintenance Mode.
No further updates with new functions planned ...
