Just installed latest version of Goalscape (2.9.0). The visual display has changed (bold grid-lines, shadowing) which is to me unaesthetic and uncomfortable on the eyes. Is there any way to revert to the display as it was is previous versions?

    Hello Adam

    Sorry you do not like the changes. Please could you confirm whether you are talking about the new 'Full-fill goal coloring' display or the original 'Outline goal coloring' display (which we have indeed tweaked).

    Since the latest updates include some important fixes it is not possible to revert to a previous version of Goalscape Desktop. With your comments in mind we may 'back off' the shadow effects on goal borders in future updates.

    All the best

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for your reply. I'm using the original outline goal coloring
    display. I experimented with the customise menu but cannot revert to the
    pre-uprade display. Shadowing is fine but it's the bold black gridlines
    separating goals that I find distract from the text. I believe these were
    originally a softer grey colour.

    Best regards,

    Hi Adam

    Thanks for the additional information: we have noted your comments about the bold borders between goals.

    Just to clarify: in version 2.9 the original 'Outline goal coloring' display (the default for new projects) has been 'tweaked' to make the borders between goals bolder and introduce shading around the selected goal. The new 'full fill goal colouring' option in the Customise screen applies the goal colour (selected in the Goal Edit menu or the right-click context menu) to the entire goal slice in the goal map (previously, the selected colour was applied only to the goal border and name text in the goal map).

    If you have not coloured any goals, the only difference you will see between the 2 displays is that with full fill goal colouring, the selected goal is not coloured: goal selection is indicated only by the shading around the selected goal (see screenshots).

    Thanks again for taking the time to post your feedback about the new look: we always listen to our customers and this is certainly something we will look at before the next updates.

    Keep achieving great goals!

    Hi Adam,

    The gap (border) color in v2.8 and 2.9 is the same as the background colour. In fact the gaps simply show the background. So maybe you can get the look you like by changing the color or shade of your project background.

    We made the gap bigger (double) after looking at a lot of different colors on goals. Whether they are outlined color or full-fill, and we thought the wider gap looked better. But it depends on the background color. We'll look into it some more.
