Spellcheck's dots or wave line are difficult to distinguish

Neither the dots or the wave that spellcheck uses to underline bad written words are not easy to view.
Making them thicker or highlighting the complete word could help in that.

What you can do, is change the color to a more striking color, like Orange (RGB 255, 128, 0) or Magenta (RGB 255, 0, 255) in File > Options > Appearance > Textual Marks > Colors > Spell Check Underline.

Thank you. May be it is a matter of appreciation on my part but changing the color doesn’t solve the problem.

It’s even more pronounced when using a dark theme. On a black background the red wave (RGB 255, 0, 0) is barely visible. Changing it’s alpha channel doesn’t do anything.

May I suggest rgb 255 255 0 in File > Options > Appearance > Textual Marks > Colors > Spell Check Underline? Or even #255 255 128…

Yes, I had to do that. Still, this is a weak contrast. Even the brightest pixel of the rgb 255 255 0 underline is just rgb 168 168 15 in reality. No matter what color I choose, none of the color components ever gets over 168.

Sepia with turquoise spellcheck underline works well.

Appearance > Main Editor > Editor = #392a1d
Appearance > Main Editor > Text = #e3a673
Appearance > Textual Marks > Spell Check Underline = #00ffff

The visibility of the underline is also affected by the font size, zoom level and on which paragraph the caret is located.
