Automatic Text Color

Is there any way to change the default text color from gray? I have an easier time with black and keep having to change everything manually. It's irksome.

Re: Automatic Text Color

When you manually choose text color, it makes it hard to see when people use custom styles. =P



You can always use a browser addon like Stylus to style the default text color via css so that it's darker for you without manually using colors on text input.

Just use:

.tpost {
color: #000000;
}

That'll change it from #222222 to this #000000.

No, unfortunately there is no setting for that. Our design team has told me before that a very dark grey is statistically easier to read than true black. I agree with you personally, however.
