Lovely piece of software with one little irritation...

...or more likely, a setting that I can't find.

Here's what a flyout menu looks like from the default Control Panel icon:

OOPS, botched the post, here's what I meant to write!!


...or more likely, a setting that I can't find (the color settings do not seem to be documented anywhere)

Can't figure out how to get an attached image to show up in preview while using this forum software, so I'll try and describe.

Menu flyouts for the Control Panel default icon show with the item name in black text on my defined (light beige) background.  When I roll the mouse over the selections, the targeted item shows up as very dark blue, with the item name now switching to WHITE for contrast.

But flyouts from my own home brewed icons show up when moused with a dark blue highlight bar and the original BLACK text, which is almost unreadable.  How do I get the flyout text to reverse from black to white when the cursor hits it??

I'm not 100% sure i'm following the question/issue. Maybe you could attach a screenshot of what launchbar commander is displaying? and then tell me what you want it to display?

Did you find the custom font settings in the dock preferences tab? go to the dock you made and click on it and then at the bottom are settings for custom fonts.  Does that solve the problem? Or perhaps that is what you are saying causes the problem?

Sorry for the delay in replying.  The attached screen captures should convey what I was asking about.  When custom fonts are not selected, the highlighted item appears in contrast to the highlight bar.  When custom fonts are used, the text under the highlight bar stays in its native (black) color and so does not contrast to the bar.

A minor quibble.  I just don't use custom fonts as a result.
