I've been having odd problems with FileMaker and color lately. Generally I
develop things on a Mac, and then test them on a Windows machine -- making
changes as necessary. I always have my color settings set to the "Web"
sub-palette. Lately I've run into some inconsistencies across individual
Windows machines that have me confused.
On my Windows test machine, which is a Dell, I have Windows 2000 installed,
and the machine's color setting set at "True Color" -- the highest setting.
In FM application settings I have the color set to "Web palette". On this
machine I have never had any real color issues -- while colors are always a
little darker, they all show up.
BUT, this past week I installed a solution that tested fine on my Dell onto
to others with the same settings. When I did this, some colors
(particularly grays) did not render at all, and some of the lines in my
layout were invisible. What gives?
Any advice, experience, and tricks GREATLY appreciated!
