(UI Suggestion) DARK Layout - Current tab contrast

Recommended Posts

In the Dark Layout with two working tabs open, it is not immediately recognizable which tab you have open just from the colours. If you adjust the gamma, it lowers the brightness of the whole application (intended), but there is no way to increase the contrast between these two that I can see. I get confused by this all the time. You have to intentionally think about it which while it's only a second, it takes you out of the 'zone'. See reference image:V6gZvnm.png

In other panels you have the flow from current tab colour to panel colour: B6lA4W9.png but in the main view there is a separator.

One work around I figured is to adjust the main background to closer match the current tab. 013Ilx7.png

With 3 tabs it becomes more obvious because the one that stands out is the one you are on... ANY additional indicator to easily tell which tab is current tab would be helpful IMO.

I appreciate the linkage @Pšenda. My search terms mustn't have been accurate enough to show that one... Still, I guess if it was suggested 3 years ago and hasn't been implemented yet, a friendly reminder that it's still wanted won't hurt?
