• Non-conforming lines in text.dat

    From The Dust Council@VERT to All on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 23:21:10
    Hi folks; sorry if this has been asked before but it is confusing me a little bit.

    I am playing around with Synchronet running on Linux, and am trying to de-cyan most of the screens and user prompts.

    I am a little confused by a few things.

    Here you see this question about "Does your terminal support..."

    For most other questions the checkmark and text have easily modifiable colors as you can see from example. But for some reason, the "Does your terminal support" line is sort of hard-coded with its current colors. There are several other prompts like this as well.

    Can these be easily changed somewhere else or is there a particular reason for the colors and the @CHECKMARK@ to be absent from those lines?

    Following up on this, I've searched and grepped and prayed a little, but I am curious if you can recall where the background color for length-limited fields (default is dark blue) is set. Example would be when new users enter their e-mail address and handle.

    This is obviously not of any crucial importance but I would like to change it if possible.

    Thanks.
