View Full Version : Mac OS X Intel Core Duo & Reunion 8.06- black backgrounds

19 February 2007, 01:51 PM
I successfully transfered my genealogy data from Reunion version 5.03 to Reunion 8.06 using a GEDCOM file. My old computer is a Power Book with OS9 and and my new computer is a Mac laptop with 2.16 GHz with an Intel Core 2 Duo running Mac OS X version 10.4.8. Everything seems fine except that when I use certain Reunion feature such as the Index, the selected "cells" or active name has a black background. The trouble is that I can't read the writting through the black since the writting is black as well! In the old Mac it's simply transparent shaded area allowing the writting to be viewed easily. Can anyone help?

Think the color settings in your Mac are not proper set.
Go to System Preferences -> Display
Choose the the color you wish as Highlight color

I believe that the proper place in System Preferences is in "Appearance" not "Displays"

That's correct. Work with Dutch OS, so I had to translate the word 'Weergave' , but I did it wrong. Thanks for correction.

Thanks very much- going to appearances in the system menu did the trick!
