Hmm, I thought it was something in the original "skin" I've seen it
referenced that determined the text color. I use the same persona for
Firefox, Thunderbird and LO 4.0. In Firefox and Thunderbird the text
in question is white, but in LO it's black. Just for your info, its

You have to define it during the submission process.  You give it
a name, define the header and footer images, and you define the
text and accent colors for menu text.

I do not know of any way to change the menu text in a persona if
the designer chose the wrong color for the user.

I try to use either a white color for dark backgrounds or black for
the light background.  Maybe later, I will make some backgrounds
that will look good with some colored text.  I test my
persona/theme designs with Firefox before I submit them.  I do not
know of a way to do that with LibreOffice, but maybe later.

Of course, if you can get a hold of the designer, you could let
them know that a specific theme and its menu text color did not
work for your system.

My "light" reptile skin worked well with my systems, and another's
but a user on this list stated it was not "working for them".  SO,
I decided to make a really dark version of the same theme and using
white text instead of black.

Sorry this does not help you.  For me there are a lot of themes
out there that seemed to have dark images and dark text, or others
where the text color was not standing out enough to use.

text are you referring to the menu bar text? If so, how do you get
it to display in white? I'm using a persona from Firefox and I have
click on a spot where I think the correct menu is to get the drop
down. In Firefox and Thunderbird all of the text in the menu bar is
white so the black background doesn't hide, but in Libre the text
remains in black, so the text is lost in the background.

Well, I could make it much darker, but then I would have to
use White text.

It looks good on my Ubuntu's LCD monitor, and my Win7

So decide, dark background and white text or light background
with the default black text.

OR you could go and make a theme yourself and submit it to
Firefox and get it approved.  Then use that one.

Hi :) I guess it depends somewhat on how your monitor is
set-up. I have 2 that are both supposedly 'correct' but one
is a lot darker than the other.  I put "correct" in single
quotes because i think both those monitors are a bit wonky
and wouldn't be good for editing images. Regards from Tom

I really like how my "LibreOffice Reptile Skin 1"
Persona design works out on LibreOffice 4.0.0.
Seriously? It's so bright that it's unusable.
