Darker type on observing lists pop up window that says "Show Object Info" etc. on my iPad

The words are light blue on a gray background. Is there a way to make the type darker? I find it hard to read at night.

    Richard,

    Apple has changed the background in this panel and in some version of iOS it is harder to read than desirable.  What version of iOS are you running?

    Are you using night vision here?  Red film?  If you tell me I can hopefully make some suggestions.

    Bill, I'm running iOS 10.3.2, I tried night vision and it makes the panel easier to read but also makes the screen too hard to read (I'm in New York City so there's a lot of light pollution).

    Richard,

    I'm not really sure what you are seeing.  I am running the app on 10.3.2 and there is no problem I see with that popup in either night vision or regular mode.  I'm wondering if yo have enabled some Accessibility setting that is causing the problem.  Could you capture a screen shot and send it to me?  I don't think there is a way to attach files in the forums so you may need to send it to me at "bill at simulationcurriculum dot com"

    I got the screenshot.   To be honest yours still looks pretty readable to me although I agree it could be better.  This is just the way Apple has designed these panels.

    Do this.  Go into the iOS Accessibility settings and tap Increase Contrast.  In the new panel try "Darken Colors".  I think you will find that's more readable..
