Bug Description

I have attached the screenshot. When using bright backgrounds in the dash the readability of the dash text is not clear, we need to have a better solutions for that. Other OS try to keep the background static or have the background a bit faded to counter this issue.

Wallpaper of scopes can not be changed, can we please remove this options from settings. Custom lock screen should display without info-graphic.

Any further questions regarding the design please let me know.

Hmm that'd be a weird limitation? Because you change your background you don't get infographics?

FYI, there's a complete rework of the infographic system that will allow for 3rd party visualizers, we had initial plans for providing a set of colour palettes to choose from (maybe based on average wallpaper colour/lightness or user preference) that the infographics would be drawn with.

The only customisation we allow is in the lock screen.
The photo in the lock screen is show through the divider in the Dash.

On top of this divider there should be a white layer with 50% opacity.

In the screenshot above, top row, it's not see-through, it'd have to be rotated, too.
