AmigaOS 4.0 - About OS4 - Preferences

GUI Preferences Editor
The GUI Preferences editor enables you to change virtually anything to do with the appearance of the Workbench screen, comprising Colors, Borders, Gadgets, Menus, Styles, Options and Controls, each one with its own editing window accessed from the left-hand menu bar.

Colors

Edges contrast can either be set to 'Automatic' or 'Manual'. If 'Manual' is selected, additional options are added to the User interface pens list for manipulating the edges.

Pen Assignment can either be set to 'Palette' or 'RGB'. If 'Palette' is selected, the colours defined by the Palette Preferences editor are displayed beneath the User interface pens. 'RGB' has not been implemented at this time.

To set the User interface pens, click on the required pen then select the color from the palette shown in the panel below it.

When Edges contrast is set to 'Automatic' and it is appropriate for the User interface pen selected, Edges contrast level has two controls for Bright and Dark which can range from 0 to 255 for each of the User interface pens. When not appropriate the values will appear ghosted.

When Edges contrast is set to 'Automatic' and it is appropriate for the User interface pen selected, Edges gradient curve has two controls for Bright and Dark which can range from 0 to 255 for each of the User interface pens. When not appropriate the values will appear ghosted.

Action Buttons
When you make changes you can choose to 'Save' them permanently, just 'Use' them temporarily until the system is rebooted, or you can 'Cancel' and lose all changes.
