Jamf web interface very difficult to read

Is there some way to change fonts or colours to make the jamf pro web interface more readable?

I would like the fonts to be black not grey.

I have to change to edit mode to be able to read the screen, and even then it's difficult.

EDIT: If using Chrome, there is an extension to increase the contrast, which helps somewhat. In Settings > Advanced > Accessibility > Add accessibility features . The Extension is called High Contrast. There are others as well.

EDIT 2: There is an existing feature request for this. See https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/feature-requests/6741/jss-font-color-and-size-options

I am late to the party with upgrading to version 10, but after about a week with the new interface, I want to rip my eyes out. Aside from the poor color choice for the UI (who outside of marketing thinks that this even remotely usable), the spacing between lines, columns etc. is slowing me down by about half the speed of the old interface. And whats up with the slow fade-in for each time the UI needs to be partially redrawn? Please guys, provide some options please (even if I need to make changes by hand).

@karld305 please add your upvote to the multiple feature requests on this subject. some are related to color options, some are related to fonts and themes, but all of them have begun to turn sour since 10 came out...and hopefully the more people comment there to keep them in the feed, someone at jamf will take a dang hint...

Looks like this thread should be turned into a Feature Request.

I was hoping that this would be one of the issues resolved soon.

I talk with a lot of people who are managing Apple devices.

Some use Zuludesk, and from some of their screenshots it appears jamf has slavishly copied the look of their interface.

It really is a retrograde step where essential tools are subject to the fashion of the day.

Just makes you approach having to do anything in jamf with a sad reluctance. IMO.

I just picked a browser that I'd use only for the web console and modified the default setting for web pages, stipulating that my font and colors would override a webpage's. 312f6d2797a143f8b607fd26afdcdfb1
