Right-Click Context Menu - Enabled vs Disabled Items

I'm currently using the Light theme in SnagIt 2019 and the colors for the enabled vs. disabled context menu items are not different enough, in my opinion.  At a glance, it's not obvious which menu items are enabled:



It would be more helpful if there was a darker shade of blue for the enabled items to make them stand out more.  Either that or my eyesight is just going bad...  :)

Thanks,

Joe

The contrast seems more on my monitor?  A lot depends on how yours is calibrated and set up.

Thanks for the feedback about the contrast.  I've been messing with mine with no luck.  I've tried it on my Dell laptop monitor, Dell 23" monitor and my Viewsonic 27" monitor and I can't seem to make the enabled items stand out any better.  I've switched to the Dark theme in the meantime - it has a bit more contrast built-in.  I'd just rather be using the Light theme.

Hmmm! I notice that there is a big difference between what displays using the menu bar vs right-click context menu(s.) Menu bar drop-downs appear to have a lot more contrast on my system. Below is the edit menu on the left and a right-click context menu on the right. As you can see, substantially different.

Yep, mine behaves the same way!  It appears the menu bar items are even bolded while the pop-up menus are not.  Consistency here might be nice too.

To be honest, looking at the two side-by-side, I'm thinking it's the disabled items that aren't light enough (vs. the enabled items being too light). 

Thanks for following up.
