Hello, @don-ho and All,
Sorry to be a spoilsport, but playing around with the new tab color feature ( thanks for that ! ), I noticed, for instance, that the difference between color 1 and color 4 are really tiny, when not in Dark mode !
So, in a future release, could you add, in the Style configurator, for the Global Styles language, the 5 styles :
Tab Style 1
Tab Style 2
Tab Style 3
Tab Style 4
Tab Style 5
which would allow, each of us, to easily modify these colors ?
Now, regarding the possibility to define a tab color for all the files with a specific extension, while not adding, in Preferences > Highlighting, a new group :
------ Tab Matching Extensions ------
Tab color 1 and a zone to type in an extension
Tab color 2 and a zone to type in an extension
Tab color 3 and a zone to type in an extension
Tab color 4 and a zone to type in an extension
Tab color 5 and a zone to type in an extension
Of course :
Any assignment of an extension would force all the tabs, with that specific extension, to be colored with the chosen color, regardless of their possible previous color
Any deletion of an extension would break, from now on, the link between that extension and the specified tab color and this color would be removed for all the tabs with the specified extension
As usual, @don-ho, there are only suggestions. Take your time ! It’s just up to you to consider, or not, part or all of these ideas !
could you add, in the Style configurator, for the Global Styles language, the 5 styles, see ISSUE 12156.
define a tab color for all the files with a specific extension, I brought this up in github comments while the base feature was being developed, but it didn’t get a reaction. You could put a new feature request in about it.
