With the black background a screenshot is a bit a pity if pasted in a word document. What about an option to export the screen in "white" mode instead of a "black" mode?
In screenshot mode, timing marker and measurement data should be visible.
"I was told prior to release, that Logic 2 was going to have a 'light' interface option, and I can't find it."
"Can I change the background of the traces to say white? When I do a copy and print, it uses a lot of black ink and the printed contrast is poor."
"we would like to have share screenshot & save the capture in “Light Mode”, so that we can see signals clearly, if we are to attach the same in a Word Document. It would be a “Nice to Have” feature."
"hi, do you know how to set the background of the captured waveform as white? We want to put the waveform to files, but the background is black, which is not clear. Thanks!"
(feedback via email)
"I need a DIagram where I could minimal switch the background from black to white, especially for printing."
I was suggesting this feature years back in Logic_1 and it got implemented :-)
"I use WINDOWS snip and paste into photoshop, and then invert to attain black waveforms on white… much easier to deal with in documentation.
(No need to mimic the old Tektronix and HP displays)
then export to PNG for use in documentation and (lab) notebook notes/PDFs.
With capturing MANY variations/experiments, it would be so much easier and quicker to have a keyboard shortcut to screenshot and go to the next capture."
It would be great to add a feature to change the color theme of the Logic2 software from dark to white mode. Because when I add the screenshot into a presentation, it is dififcult to identify the signals and text due to black background.
"But, this time, I did learn how to open the Simple Parallel Analyzer. I did not see it previously, because I did not see the analyzer scroll bar. On my monitor, the scroll bar color blended with the field to the right, so I was unable to discern it until I watched your video."
My vote is for a light mode option. Us old timers really don't understand why the world has gone so dark over the last few years!
I’d like to support this request. A white background would look so much better in a screenshot. An export to pdf or png would also be good. Creating a graph in excel is possible but not convenient.
"Feature Request - Change themes...I need a light theme. I take screenshots of things that I need to discuss with other engineers. I would like to print them, but the dark theme doesn't print well. Either let me theme it myself (and I wouldn't choose dark anyway) or just make the default black on white."
"Feature Request - User configurable trace colours/thicknesses. App is hard to read, default trace colours are too faint and non-distinct and lines are too thin.
This affects also the dark mode. On a HiDPI screen (27” 4k on Mac) lines are so thin they almost disappear in some zoom settings.
Also colours are too indistinct in dark mode as well ( and don’t match my wire loom that came with my unit )"
"I am using an old version of your logic analyser and the pinout colors do not match the application. It would be great if I was able to choose my own signal colors."
How about setting the background transparent when exporting as png?
Can you clarify what you mean by this and give an example scenario? Would love to know how a transparent background export option would help in your case. Let us know!
Transparent background might not be very useful now that I think of it. The advantage would be that a transparent background is easy to fill with whatever color you want (since you in an image editor can select "transparent pixels").
And if you for some strange reason would want the background to "shine through" it would be possible with a transparent background.
But I think a light color theme would be simpler and more user friendly.
It is desirable to have to colors "printer friendly" - ie, a white background with traces adjusted to be visible. A quick "Save screen to PDF" option. Or possibly PNG but a vector format
would be nicer.
I fully agree with Matthew. The perception of the human eye will experience distinctive colors on a white background. Especially when you have 16 or more trace signals.
A black background would only be acceptible when the channel colors are white or yellow. The frist one has my favor.
+1, I would prefer to see a white background, less stressful on the eyes.
