Does the "Preferences - Look and feel" do anything? They all look the same to me! Not a big problem but the background colour of selected items can make them difficult to read. I am running Win XP SP3

    Hi steverenold

    The look and feel option changes the set of default controls used by the java run time environment. I believe that it is necessary to restart Moneydance for a change in the look and feel settings to take effect.

    You can specifically change the many of the background colours in Moneydance by Selecting File->Preferences and then clicking on the Colours tab.

    Hi Ben

    Thanks for reply, I see now that there are differences but they are very
    minor in Home and Account pages.

    Steel changes to Metal when restarted!

    Regards Steve
