Go for a new look in the New Year

Post by Kevin Wilson-Smith »

Why not?

You are not stuck with the default red look - there are 2 other options.

For some time now (months and months) I have been using the prosilver option shown below - I find it easier to use, easier on the eyes and easier to navigate.

Try it, but remember to give it a chance for a couple of weeks - like anything new you need to give it time!

I have highlighted action buttons on yellow, as the positions of these change in the different "views".

To change your Board Style go here for some help.....

AeroRed is my favourite and I've been using it for a long time now. I find that the "default" looks very bare and spartan compared to both AeroRed and prosilver.

Note that some of the FAQ instructions won't be 100% the same for the different templates. For example, certain menu items may be in slightly different places. However basically they all have the same features - you might just have to look around a bit until you become familiar with the new templates.
