#1689 Changing the Alternate Background Color on the Entry List (Keypass 2)


I assume priority 9 is LOW and not High!

I have moved recently from KeyPass 1 to 2. I cannot recall how I did so, but on KeyPass 1 I was able to select the color used to alternate the colors on the lines of the Entry List. On 2 I have set up the background colors to alternate. This seems to happen with a very faint blue tinge to the alternate line. I have not found a way to make this color deeper or change it. The only thing changing the Custom Database Color does for me is to change the color of the Keypass icon at the very top right of my screen!

I am running as a user NOT as administrator, on my Windows 7 laptop. The date of change on the config file is being updated but the global config file has a date back in 2007.

Hope I am posting to the right part of the Forums for this sort of thing!

    You can only set the lines to alternate, not the colours. I find selecting the entry is the best way to maintain visual contact.

    p.s. priority isn't really relevant, it's up to Dominik.

    cheers, Paul

    I've now added an option for this (in 'Tools' -> 'Options' -> tab 'Interface').

    Here's the latest development snapshot for testing:

    Thanks and best regards,
