Changes to the Layers Panel - Color Labels

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I was thinking that sometimes, when selecting a Layer, you can't really see the color of the Layer (being just one pixel tall is hard to see at times), so the next Mockup explains my idea

  • Putting the color label in the left side, and;
  • Moving the color tag of the Symbols to the right.

What do you think?

Best regards!

I think your idea is more visually noticeable, though I do like the idea of an underline as well.

The thing with the underlines is that sometimes is not visible enough, I think. This way, the chances for that to happen are minimal.

Best regards!

I like this one but ... why a line if like you said one pixel is sometimes hard to distinguish. 

A rounded or square would be more visible.

And this look like the one from Adobe but much thinner though I like it's gradient color which is inovative. 

Good idea

The color label in the right side is more than 1 pixel wide (3 to be exact), and we tend to see vertical lines thicker than horizontal ones. I thought that was enought size and enough contrast.

My idea was to match the style already used by Serif. Now, the reason to move the color labels to the left was that most people look from left to right and I guess that Layers are more common thatn Symbols, so the first thig that should be shown is something to identify the Layers.

Best regards!
