Black Background with white letters

Ok, I know this is easy but I cant figure it out, when you first open Sumatra and it gives you your quickpads of last documents I got it on a for readability I altered the SumatraPDF-settings.txt for a black background, now how do I get white letters under the documents instead of black?

sorry...ment the "Frequently Read"

Hi, maybe you should delete the sumatrapdfcache folder inside the portable folder of Sumatra. Or you remove it in the frequently read list firstly and reopen it again.

I think looking throug the code this is one colour that cannot be changed without recoding chunks of SumatraPDF it is always defaulting to BLACK

The only way that it MAY change is using the system colours option but since that would screw up all other apps if I set all system text to white, i'm not going to test the possibility

the option to change that background to grey or any other user choice was brought about by user grumblings as previously it was the "house" colour of very bright yellow
