Fonts and Colors
SkookumLogger uses font styles and colors applied to call signs to help you distinguish different QSO needed states. There are six states, evaluating as follows:
If the call appears in your Buddies list, SkookumLogger uses the Buddy font and color. When your buddy is a dupe, the WorkedBefore font is used instead of the Buddy font.
Otherwise if the call would be a duplicate QSO, SkookumLogger uses Worked before .
Otherwise if the call would be a new multiplier, SkookumLogger uses Needed multiplier .
Otherwise if the call might be a multiplier, or if the call is a rover , SkookumLogger uses Might be multiplier .
Otherwise if the call is needed, SkookumLogger uses Needed QSO ..
Otherwise SkookumLogger uses Not needed QSO .
You define the font style and color for these cases in Font and Color preferences.
About Dark Mode
In Dark mode, macOS changes the default text color from black to white, and adjusts the colors of the backgrounds of controls and windows that contain text to maintain text readability. When you choose custom colors for text as described above, then switch Dark mode on or off, you may find that readability is degraded. If you like to toggle between the two modes when using SkookumLogger, macOS provides some special colors that are also adjusted to maintain readability. To use those colors in SkookumLogger:
Click a color well on Font and Color preferences to show the Colors chooser.
Chose Developer in the popup menu at the top of the chooser.
Choose a color name beginning with system, such as systemRedColor.
Also use this approach to choose colors for the Partial match underline color and the Entry field background highlight color . The default choices are systemRedColor and unemphasizedSelectedTextBackgroundColor , respectively.
