How do we change font color?

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 by happyboy7 | Discussion: SkinStudio Help


There are so many wonderful windowblind skins, but some have just an issue or two.  The Easter skin, for example, is very useable except for when I mouse over a button, the box that comes up has a white background and yellow font color, making it very unreadable.  I would like to either change the white background to blue or the yellow font to blue.

I've been in the latest version of SkinStudio, but not sure where these exact settings are located.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

the majority of text color setting are assigned to that graphic element. Taskbar text colors are altered via the taskbar button text settings, etc. There are a few that are located in weird places but for the most part the above holds true.If you are having an issue with a specific element, identify the element so suggestions can be more succinctly addressed.

That what you've related to is under "edit button controls", "push buttons" and their text color settings.

I wonder if you mean the small pop up ballon,AKA....ToolTip?

If so, open skin studio, go to Edit tooltip and tree controls, tool tip background.

Some programs may also use, colors set in skin defined colors, tooltip text, and tooltip.


If not that or GMC's suggestion, maybe you mean group boxes, or combo boxes?

Those are under edit controls, combo box.
