A Thought: Eye Candy

  • Updated 4 years ago
     This is an idea that I am sure has been on the minds of most everyone who has ever played with the PSDR software to make changes to the "Eye Candy" which went a long way to personalize your own Flex Interface.   I know I have played fairly extensively with the color schemes of the main panel as well as the panadaptor and I Loved the fun in that.  I'd like to see a return or an ability of that nature brought to the Smart SDR software.  Any Plans for that?  I realize there is a LOT of focus on the high end  operation of the 6k series radios but it would be nice to be able to "Play" with the graphics to make it "Your Own".   Jim

I think the ergonomics comes first, then to have the colour flexibility. OTOH, being able to change the colours would help the current poor readability of some features.

      Perhaps a good "loose end" candidate for 1.5.
