Minor suggestions to improve the Color window


Recommended Posts

Here are a few things I would change to improve the look and feel of the Color window:
- Have the Secondary color up front while it's selected.
- Some of the characters are not in line with their corresponding slider (see image). I would align them, remove the unnecessary colons and make the sliders wider.
- Make the transparency slider go from black to transparent to improve clarity.
- Use an icon instead of the text '>>' in the More/Less button.

I realize there are probably more important things to worry about but I'm assuming these wouldn't take long to implement, so hopefully they can be sneaked together with other stuff in an upcoming update. Please let me know what you think.

Well nothing's going in for 4.1.6. That one's done and just being bugfixed. You're right though -- the labels aren't aligned. I think I did have them very well aligned, but that was maybe 10 years ago and since then there's been a lot of changes that could've bumped them around a little. Like, say, a brand new text rendering engine (DirectWrite), high-dpi layout fixes, etc.
