Display background
Dear All,

I wonder if and how we can change the display background color from BLACK to WHITE so that we can use our results in papers or thesis without dark. I don't like to use another software and just do a "invert" on the whole image. Many thanks.

Re: Display background
If you copy the image by right clicking on the title bar of the window, the image background is white if you have the "Reverse Background/Foreground" option checked, which it is by default.

Re: Display background
Thank you very much, Modh. However, I forgot to mention that I am using X-window rather than the FLUENT on general window system . Our FLUENT is sitted on a server machine. The method you told me sounds not working in this situation. Any other ideas? Thanks again.

Try this:

In the cortex window, type

/display/set/colors/background "white"
