Color Scheme; nice to have this feature back on the 2013

Seems like the color scheme option has been removed for 2013; this is a nice feature and would be nice if this can be added back.

        I cant stand the new interface... i wish i had never upgraded.. its not only the color.. but the placement and menu font is just not user friendly. I wont be upgrading to the next version unless some change is made.. its that bad.

        It does have the option to change the overall color scheme but I would like to have the ability to set a unique color for each account that I monitor.

        Please add back the ability to adjust the background color

        Not that it hasn't been said enough, but I can't stand the color and look of enterprise solutions 2013. EXTREMELY hard on the eyes.

        Hate the black and gray background. Depressing. Yuck. Can't understand why Intuit thought they were doing anyone a favor by taking the option away from us to edit the color schemes.

        Your help menu is referencing how to change the color schemes in the preferences but there is no "color scheme" option!!
        Very frustrating that the instructions don't tell you that it is not there.

        Please add back the ability to show ENTIRE checks in different accounts as different colors, not . just the edges of check. It would be a lot less confusing, less work. Thank you

        Yes, I also like the ability to change the color of the checks. It helps keep accounts straight when balancing several checking accounts in one company.

        Please return the color scheme option back! I am working with 3 different companies and really need to have them in different colors!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Being able to change the background on checks as well as the register is sorely missed. When dealing with multiple companies it really helped to make sure you were not posting or writing checks to the wrong company.
        Thank you

        The new color scheme stinks. We don't need Intuit to dictate what colors we have to look at. Let the user decide for himself. We are much better at choosing colors that are best for individual viewing.

        The 2013 interface is terrible.

        The fonts are too large and requires too much scrolling and searching for data.

        The Ship-To and Bill-To boxes are too small/narrow.

        The Memo field at the bottom of the Invoice/SO is too small/narrow.

        The scroll bar is too narrow.

        The contrast, too much white background with light grey letters, is very hard on the eyes.

        The Ribbon at the top of the Invoices/SO/PO's takes up too much space and reduces the number of visible rows/lines of data.
        To see more lines/rows of data, we now have to click on the Maximize/Minimize button in the upper right hand corner. This is very unproductive and wastes our time constantly maximizing/minimizing the open window.

        The new User interface is slower to respond and navigate. It feels like I am working in molasses.

        The bi-chroma window design is terrible. It's very difficult to differentiate the windows from the backgound. Please release color schemes.

      • aa commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The red is terrible in both the register and calendar graph. It is orange more than red. PLEASE bring back dark red, which was not so hard on the eyes (and calibrate your monitors maybe?)!!!!!!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So, now I have to stare at a dark and depressing, not to mention not that easy to see screen all day. Really? I thought they were improving.... Why would you remove an option. I hope they change this soon!!!!!!!!!

        i do NOT like the new color scheme. Way too much white- difficult to read. Please bring back the option for individual users to choose best color scheme for their own usage!
