Due to visual problems that I have, I have my computer configured so that I can work with white text on a black background. Most programs don't seem to have a problem with that, but I can't work out how to change the colour settings in TRADOS 5.5 Freelance. I only really use TRADOS with Word XP and Tag Editor.

In Word, I would like to know how to change the colour of the source text background and target text background. Currnetly, they appear as blue and pale yellow respectively but the text is white so I can hardly see it on these backgrounds.

In Tag Editor, when I'm in Edit mode, all I can see on the screen are the tags and everything else is black. The source and target segments open fine, but I can's see any of the other text in the document (I guess that the dicument font is configured as black somewhere).

It really is tiring me out and I'd appreciate it if someone could help.
