Foresight Forecast - Flat Dark Theme - Customise Button - Unable to Change Font Colour - Bug

This issue has been raised numbers of times since early 2022

The nub of the problem is the default font colour in Dark Theme means the FF graphs use black for text which renders them illegible

Nathan (Support) said in the closed discussion
That he would raise the problem with developers

I am using 2022.4 (4087) ie the latest and the problem is still there

Please can we have an update on this bug from Moneydance Support

    Hi Nigel,

    We are sorry to hear about the problem you have encountered.

    Firstly we would recommend upgrading to the latest preview version.
    Moneydance 2022.5 (4089) is now available to download from this page.

    Then in order to customize the Foresight Forecast colors you should navigate to Moneydance/File->Preferences->Appearance. Click Customize on the Theme and find the setting for "Icon color for income categories" and "Icon color for expense categories".
    Change them to a lighter color of green and red as you prefer, and click all the OK's to accept.
    Restart Moneydance for the change to be applied!

    Also, switching to an overall darker theme from Preference might work as well.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions or need more assistance.

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support

    Of course, you can choose Custom or High Contrast (as a theme) then click "Customize" and find the setting for "Icon color for income categories" and "Icon color for expense categories".
