LaTeX/Rigid flag status hardly visible
« on: August 16, 2017, 12:04:27 PM »
Version: 7.2

In the "Text" sidebar, it is very hard to see whether the "LaTeX/Rigid" flags are set or not:


Rem.: I added the big black frames to put both sidebar snippets right next to each other.

On the right side where both flags are set, the label text has a very slight shadow. That's the only difference between the two. In previous versions I remember that the label background was darkened when one of those flags was set -- I'd like that solution better as it's a lot easier to see.

Thanks for your on-going work on that great tool!

Yes, that's the look of the Fusion widget style. The light look is lacking some contrast. Here you can see the available styles: Qt Widget Gallery. The problem is that only Fusion is available on all platforms and each style has a little bit different layout metrics, so I would have to make widget layouts that fit all possible styles, which can be a lot of fiddling around. Havin one style makes it easier.

I could use a checkbox instead of a push button, but it needs addditional horizontal space for the label. I can also modify the style and change the pressed state color. Perhaps that's what I will do.

However, on my monitors the pressed state is quite distinguishable, but I have IPS panels on both my desktop and my laptop. I know that TN panels are lacking contrast and are fading colors.

Thanks for your reply, that would be great. I guess a background of dark gray could do the trick and would not be offensive.
