Dark Grey Highlighting of Synchronized Text Making Text Hard to See

Recommended Posts



When I open up NVivo and click on an audio file that has a transcript and play the audio with the "Synchronize" at the bottom left hand corner of the screen checked, the synced text is highlighted in a dark grey color. The dark grey highlighting color is so dark it is difficult to read the text.


However, if I click anywhere in the transcript area, the highlighting changes to a nice light blue color which is easy on my eyes and the text now clearly visible. But the problem is that then the area of the transcript I clicked stays selected and becomes distracting.


I only found this workaround in having the highlighted sync text turn to blue after clicking around all over the place. For users using this function for the first time, this may be rather jolting.


To show you what is happening, I have included a screenshot of the how NVivo appears when first just playing the synchronized text and another after clicking the text which changes it to blue but leaves the text continually selected.


Could you point this out to the technicians and ask for a fix?


Also, could you put forward a suggestion? It would be great if the user could select a color they want to have the highlighting in. One reason, just to enhance personal preference for the user. The other, although I am not color blind, there maybe users who are. So being able to change colors for this and other features would be very welcome.


Looking forward to hearing from you.


Cheers! :)
