We have a template we use for posting client projects, which has a repeating area. On most of our computers, in the Design view, this area appears properly as the hex it is assigned to, #ccc09b. Here's a photo:
On our laptop, the first two columns of any template are black, but we are not aware of changing any settings. How do we get those two columns to display with their intended background color? It makes editing really annoying.
<!-- InstanceBeginRepeat name="Project Rows" --><!-- InstanceBeginRepeatEntry -->
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="Project Row Content" -->
<div class="row" style="background-color:#ccc09b;">
<div class="job">CHS Job No. 2314</div>
<div class="top"><a href="#pageTop">Back to Top</a></div>
<div class="due" style="color:#773a1f;">Due: Priority</div>

Which version of DW are you using?
Which view are you using -- Design or Live?
Why do you have inline CSS styles in your markup? It's best practice to keep CSS separate from markup.
We are using DreamWeaver CC 2019. This issue is happening in the Design view.
I believe the original builder of the site used inline CSS in this instance because there were some color variations by client, but I don't believe that is a contributing factor to the issue I am having—it seems more like a setting that got accidentally activated on the laptop, but I don't know what it would be.
Try disabling CSS. Go to View > Design View Options > Style Rendering and remove the check from Display Styles. This will have no impact on Live view or browser previews.
If that doesn't solve the issue, then go to Preferences > Interface and tell me which App and Code themes are being used on both devices.
Thanks for your suggestions, Nancy. I tried your suggestions above, and compared all settings in Preferences to our other computers; they were the same.
Solution: I realized that the laptop has Scale set to 225% in Windows > Settings > Display > Scale and layout; this appears to be causing the issue. When set to anything other than 100%, those columns turn black. I confirmed by adjusting the Scale on one of our desktops and got the same result. I will submit a bug report.
