Link Point visibility
I recently starting earnestly using MSPro and it looks like an example of masterful application design and execution. This is my first post. It seems difficult to check around all the forum threads to see if there might already be one that a new issue or request should logically be appended to. Anyway...

Using an E-ink tablet (Max2 Pro), link point colors are not really distinguishable as different shades of grey. While focusing on reading through a score with (D.S./D.C.) repeats, it may not be instantly obvious whether the link point showing is actually the next one to trigger. For example, I have a link point from 3 to 1, then from 2 to 5, and a foot pedal set to“Activate Next Link or Go to Next Page”. When I first arrive at page 2 and see the second (from) link point in the middle of the page, I might mistakenly hit the pedal thinking I need to jump. Now I'm at page 3, having bypassed instead of playing the bottom half of page 2.
Or I might mistakenly skip past a link point thinking it's not the next one I should trigger.

Would it be feasible to display only the next "from" link point to be triggered, then at activation its "to" link point, then only the next "from" link point, etc? MSP is honoring links and turning pages correctly, but when I'm fixating on notes, seeing multiple valid link point pairs, even if I use different size circles, might cause some confusion.

Otherwise, perhaps the next link point could be darkened, numbered, or highlighted in some way to
differentiate it from other links, particularly considering grey scale e-ink screens.
