hey all!

i just got lightwave [6] and i have a question:

in some of the boxes there are fields where you enter in numbers, such as meters or inches.

the numbers there are yellow, and so pale i can only see them when i highlight them.

i've looked through the manuals and i can't seem to find a way to change the default colors of these fields. it's driving me nuts!

thanks all. i really look forward to being a part of this community!

I'm using 7.5 and am not sure if they fixed it or not, and it may not even be related, but I seem to remember there was a problem in ver 6 with the text fields if you had your Windows display properties set to Large Fonts. Just a thought.

Hey Rich
AFAIk the problem sit relatied to some foreign language- support that you could have installed on your system. I have never had that problem myself, but I have heard of a fix being available somewhere, maybe you will find it at flay...
Otherwise removing the foreign languages should make it work...
