Hi 
   On the TLC model overview page:
  1. You can instantiate the parameters (CONSTANTS)  initially the screen is white text on grey background but when you change the type  (Model value -> Ordinary assignment, .... or what ever) the screen is the unhelpful white text on white background.
  2. Not sure if this is a bug or restriction we need to work with:
       From ABSpec "Inv == AVar[2]= BVar[2] => (AVar = Bvar)"  but Inv is not recognised as an Invariant whereas the right hand side is.
       I previously noticed that in a definition I could not use any previous definitions.

Could you attach a screenshot of what you're seeing (perhaps with the dialog and the main window of the Toolbox behind it?)

Thank you - loki

Sorry for delay  teaching has started and time gets eaten up very quickly.

the change in the window occurred when editing  a Model value to an ordinary assignment.

Hi David,

please try to disable theming by launching the Toolbox with 'toolbox
-cssTheme none'. The look & feel won't be as fancy but it should
address the UX issue with the model editor.

Thanks
Markus

Thanks Markus
All I needed to do was switch the Mac from "dark" theme to "light" theme  and it works just fine.  david
