In general, I think the new page layout is superior to the old one. But, I find all of the display options to be more or less illegible. I have gone back to the Default scheme. But it would be much more readable if the content text was black or dark blue. The default text on a 19" screen is too small for my eyes, and the large text is too large for my taste. I can change the default to a medium size using the browser, so that's not a major problem. But am I the only one that finds the text contrast poor? Is it too late to implement one more change? Think of it as ADA compliance for those handicapped with old eyes. Thanks.

Not sure what you mean, as I'm seeing the text in black, using a skin called "The Blues", but you can also select fonts and colors in your browser, to override what's coming from the web page. At least in Firefox you can do that.

The old board allowed us to see the first few lines of the post. This helped me understand the nature of the post when looking at the Active Topics list.

This new software now depends upon the poster giving a well defined and descriptive title to the topic.

Is there a way to go back to the previous style of displaying a portion of the message?

I hate the blue type. Very hard to read. With Safari I can't see a way to get black type. Al;si I agree with you Kevin about the lack of the fuirst few lines of the post.

Not all these smart graphic designer improvements improve legability or communication of the actual content of the message!

Have discovered "My Home" page where I can change "skins". Choose Desert (large type) & now my tired old eyes can read it> Apologies to web designer :-).

But would like the first few lines of the post to show as in previous version.

Desert is definitely better than the standard. Who came up with the "wild" one? A color-blind 5 year old? Haha

We are working on changing the body of the text posts to black without having to use another skin color.

In the future, please send issues with the new software to tech@nemetschek.net with Attn: Katie in the subject line.
