Couldn't agree with you more. This is one of the things I asked Marvin about a while back. He didn't seem to think there was a way to do it with the theme.ini file. It is one of the last things on my list to make the program function/look the way I want it. It appears as though the font color might be hard coded. We might want to run it past PurDoom to see if he can hack into it.
BTW, with regard to the question I asked (in another thread) about the turn direction images, you are correct, I do not run iGuidance maximized. The reason for this is I want the CF buttons, on the left, visible at all times. I did try it maximized, though, and it lined up perfectly, as you said.
One other question...is your iGBigButton mod compatible with the next version (2.1.3) of iGuidance. If not, is it possible for you to post the images (and where they belong) so we can replace them ourselves? Just wondering.
