It is true that a higher contrast between active and inactive tabs would be welcome. Sometimes I have trouble differentiating them on the laptop depending on my position in front of the screen.

+1 one of the many small frustrations with the Affinity UI.

Seems like such an easy fix too.

In the meantime, perhaps it would be safer to use File > Close or Ctrl+w to close the tabs :)

Ummm.. I think that is just what is happening. Using a menu command without being sure which tab is selected. Safer would be to use the close box in the tab (or window).

I think it is more likely to be an issue with clicking the button on the tab, as you can't be sure (with the low contrast) that the tab you've chosen is for the image that's currently displayed. But the menu-based options will always close the document that is currently visible.

They could only have a conflict if you have floated image windows, but in that case all you need to do is click the image you want to close first.

I'm glad I'm not the only one having an issue with this. And I agree, it should be an easy fix for the developer.

I'll try the shutting down from the menu and see if that helps until they address this issue.

Thanks
