Please Improve Cura Visibility for Differently Abled

Posted · Please Improve Cura Visibility for Differently Abled

Cura 3.2.1 has some important state indicators that are challenging to see and interpret. It would be very helpful if these were a more visually obvious.

For example:

  • When selecting which nozzle for a specific part, the difference between the selected nozzle and the non-selected nozzle is just a few pixels in size and a change in the line segments.
  • Selecting the nozzle (on the right of the screen) for the configuration of each nozzle is also very subtle. Just the addition of the cyan inlay on the button.

I have started prints with the wrong materials on more than one occasion - even though I am aware of my poor vision.

It is possible to toggle the display using the "Layer View" option. But this is not the default setting for the "View" options, and there is a lag in this display as the object is re-sliced.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Mark
