I haven't found anything similar in this forum, so hope these help you. It took considerable experimentation to find colors sufficiently different from each other suitable for thought names and links. The RGB names and values are standard only for the three primary and secondary colors. Other names and abbreviations are mine. Orange is particularly difficult to get right; pale reds can look brown.

They are designed to be seen against a black plex background. Naturally, a background any color other than black will skew the optimal values for these colors. If you use a white or light background you will need to darken them. Simply copy and paste the number into the "Hex:" field of the color disk. A black link is invisible against the plex. Once you have decided on your scheme, save it like this and use the same colors for thought types and link types to them for added consistency.

On my LCD screen, colors seem brightest at the center then become paler towards the periphery, not sure why.

Thanks Alan, useful. I have about 20 themes depending on mood but for the most part i have reverted to a black background generally too. Will look forward to try out your recommended palette.
