Description Jared MORGAN 2013-06-20 21:33:19 EDT
Description of problem:

When viewing the hidden characters in the Web UI, the characters are very feint. 

How reproducible:

100% on the Samsung SyncMaster 2443 monitor. Other monitors may vary.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on Hidden Characters in a topic
2. Observe Behavior

Actual results:

Characters display but the gradient is very feint. Depending on the monitor used you sometimes have to change your viewing angle to see the hidden characters clearly.

Expected results:

Character gradient is such that you can view the characters clearly at the correct ergonomic viewing angle of the monitor. Suggest 50% or darker.

Additional info:

This issue was discovered when I was editing a CSP map in the UI. I was pressing the TAB key by reflex as that is what I do in gedit when editing the maps. This inserted Tab stops instead of spaces, which is why I had to enable the hidden characters so I could replace the tab stops with spaces manually.

Fixed in 201307011553

Hidden characters are styled with the .ace_invisible class. To fix this, the following changes need to be made in the theme-eclipse.js file.


.ace_invisible {color: #ddd;}


.ace_invisible {color: #666;}

Moving this bug to CLOSED CURRENT_RELEASE to clean up old bugs that were QA'd by the PressGang team but not by the original reporter.
