I can barely see the pale color of the iCal cell for the date.  I remember this being a problem for a long time with iCal.  You can't see the highlight color in the day cell.  I have the same problem with the search or find.  The highlight color is so pale it is hard to find in a page of text.


I vaguely remember there was a way to darken that color in terminal, but I don't remember any details.


Can someone help fix this.  This is a bug that Apple seems to ignore year after year.

    I have a similar problem with iCal, and always have. It uses light grey on a white background for days and hours. Can't see the days well, but especially the hours, can't discriminate those at all.  Am not sure why more people haven't complained, or why this hasn't been fixed before this.


    Maybe it doesn't show up on iMac's which have their own monitors built in. I use a MacMini, with a Samsung monitor. Have played with the Samsung monitor's settings, but can't fix the problem that way either.


    Did check my Contrast setting in System Prefs, and it's Normal, and all the way to the left.


    I think Apple needs to fix this. I'm not sure there's anything the end user can do.

    Has anyone found a good iCal replacement app?
