Chords color/colour for light/dark background.
« on: October 03, 2019, 09:31:13 AM »
I think there's currently no way:
Lyrics are automatically, by default, white on a dark theme or black on a light theme and on paper.
Chords need to be a different color, to be most easily processed under pressure, so I/we use Yellow.  It stands out well and is least confusing when trying to read lyrics.
Unfortunately, yellow is really poor on a light/white background and therefore on paper.
Unless I've missed something, is there a chance of having two choices for chord colour, please?  One for each theme, where light theme also equals paper.  That would save a fair amount of 'Appearance' swapping when printing songs for fossils with no tablet.

The website already uses a darker yellow than the app for on-screen or print. Maybe it needs to be darker still.

Meanwhile, if you want to avoid changing the Chords Color setting whenever you print, I'd suggest trying another color like Orange that works better in both settings.

Already using orange for other purposes.
