I made this suggestion some time back (probably RMG7), but with the recent advancements in color coding, I’d like to suggest it again.
I have a friend who uses RMG and is color blind, and for him, color coding is almost useless, since he cannot distinguish most colors, only tell lighter or darker, and not very well at that.
Would it be possible to add another type of coding, as a series of patterns? They would not be as plentiful as the various colors, obviously, but giving us vertical, horizontal, and diagonal stripes, as well as dashes, plusses, etc., would go a long way to helping my friend, and I daresay that those of us with normal color vision could use such an addenda
Many men are “red green” colour blind, like me. So we see colours (ie not monochrome) but some are not distinguishable (blue-purple, green-brown, etc). The most effective solution would be to enable users to choose colours from a palette, to suit themselves, as part of customisation. Would be feasible for both Mac and PC users.
