Value list background color makes text unreadable


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

The background color for the selected item on a value list is dark blue and the text is black, making the text unreadable. It appears to be the case regardless of what style or theme is being used.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a value list - then look at it.

Expected result

White text against the dark blue background would solve the problem. Or allow the user to change the background color.


Many people are using popovers instead of value lists. While workable, I believe that value lists are an integral part of FileMaker and should be usable without using any elaborate work arounds.
