I am wondering is it possible to change the background colour (currently black) in the structure editor of DataWarrior to white? I'm not sure if this is an option I can set somehow?
Any advice will be gratefully received : Wink

Dear Avril,

the easiest solution were to go to the entry "help" in the GUI, where
you find "Look and Feel", with multiple options to choose from. This
equally is illustrated on the manual pages, tion

The «graphite» theme inverts parts of the color scheme seen for example
with the «classic» theme. If you need to invert a screen photo, or a
diagram plot by DW this way at a later point of time, you may resort to
imagemagick with an instruction in pattern of

convert in.png -negate -modulate 100,100,0 out.png

To demonstrate the effect, here is a plot with DW's `boxplots.dwar` built-in
test data:


and here the same plot, after exporting as `.png` and partial color inversion:
