There has been some talk about the new full screen mode, and whether or not it will allow user-customisation of the font colour as can Scrivener Gold. Although I have said that it will, I would just like to share the conceptual issue involved here:
To the best of my knowledge, all, or at least most, other writing programs that have a full-screen mode do not allow the user to edit font colours in any mode. Scrivener, however, allows full rich-text editing, and in the new version this is enhanced further by the implementation of annotations and footnotes. Annotations and footnotes are displayed inline and then exported as comments and footnotes or endnotes; when they are displayed inline they mainly rely on colours to distinguish them from the main text. Here are a couple of pictures I posted on the old forum:
Footnotes and annotations in Scrivener:
Exported to Microsoft Word via RTF:
Now, when you launch into full screen, implementation-wise there are two options:
Override all font colours and replace them with the temporary colour that the user has selected for full screen.
Do not override any font colours.
The first option means that in full screen you will not be able to differentiate between annotations (you will be able to distinguish annotations from normal text because annotations have a thin outline around them). You may have some annotations that are coloured red and some that are coloured blue, and these colours may mean something to you - but in full screen these colours won’t be there. And of course, any other text that has a different colour will be displayed using the full screen colour in full screen mode.
The second option means that you are limited on background colours.
I think the best option would for all of this to be covered in the full screen preferences, but would welcome opinions.
