For the foreseeable future, I suggest you learn to like the  current color scheme.
A lot of time effort and money was invested in their creation and isn't likely to be   changed   very quickly  :)

He isn't trying to change the forum colour scheme, but some of the text in his signature.
Right, David, but (so sorry!) it didn't work. I'll NEVER like the current color scheme of new UI!

This was a big mistake! Why isn't it possible for each user to change this horrible scheme?

The wording of your original question mentioned changing the colour in your 'sig,' (which I took as your signature colour). It is possible to change the colour of your signature text, but it isn't possible to change the colour of a forum theme, which is essentially what you are saying you wanted to do.

You could change the avast forum theme, to another (but that I feel is even worse) theme there is another option. Forum Profile > Look and Feel - at the top of that page you will see this text "Forum or Board Default (change)"  the option in brackets is a link option that allows you to swap.

Use the Core Theme - click the 'Preview theme' option to see the differences. You will probably agree that one is pretty bland and basic. Not to mention you can't change those colours either. no Lilac option :D

Dear David!

I'll write it again: I only meant the scheme of the neu Beta-UI!
(Sorry for not writing clearly).

With all the respect. I think the most important thing is how antivirus protects you, not the color of the interface. Nice to hear the personal preferences, but it would be better to discuss about UI in terms of functionality, not black or pink it looks better etc. :) Trying to keep the discussion as productive as it is possible :)

I agree.  But it can be argued the beta GUI is too large for lower resolution laptops, etc...  So while the color scheme does not really matter, the GUI size might.

Al this talk about liking or not the new colors *sigh*.
It is just a matter of personal taste.

Let's face it...
The amount of protection is much more important.
And how many people are there that open the GUI of their av just to "enjoy" the colors of it ?

What matters is
- are things readable (also for people with eyesight problems)
- are things (settings) in logical places

I made a post this morning regarding the text scaling (which seems to have been deleted from this thread for some reason) in the scan results menu (detailed report of a previous scan) where the text is too big to fit in the text boxes and therefore is unreadable. This same thing happens when I "Right click scan" on a folder and if malware is found. I am using Windows 10 with 200% scaling on a HiDPI screen. Also the Avast icon on the "right click context menu" is way to small.

Well, I'm not using W 10, but a scaling of 200% will fit no desktop. But therefore you can use the magnifier and reduce your scaling to 100%.

The native resolution of my screen is 3840x2160 so a 200% scaling in Windows is basically a MUST otherwise everything is super tiny. The new Avast GUI more or less scales excellently with the 200% scaling, it is only in a few places this issue where text scales to 200% but the GUI does not as can be seen in the pic.

BTW the windows and my monitor work perfectly fine it is only a bug in the avast GUI that needs to be fixed.
