1.7.0.7 - Appearance panel interface oddity

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

The "Colour" and "Gradient" tabs of the pop-up generated by clicking the colour swatch in the Fill and Stroke sections of the Appearance panel are semi-transparent, allowing the underlying document to show through, while the "Swatches" tab is fully opaque. This is inconsistent with similar tabs generated by clicking the contextual toolbar or the Colour panel in Studio: all of these are fully opaque. 

The video shows the effect in Light mode, but it's similar in Dark and Default OS modes too. I'm running MacOS Mojave 10.14.3.

 

 

Cheers!

 

ADD: this is linked to the "Reduce Transparency" setting in System Prefs - Accessibility - Display. When this setting is checked, the background of the AD panel is fully opaque.

It's still inconsistent with the other panels, though I suppose you could argue that in fact it's the other panels that aren't respecting this setting in System Preferences.

I am running High Sierra & have another (related?) issue with the Appearance panel if System Preferences > Accessibility > Display is set to Increase Contrast:

This what the bottom of the panel looks like when docked with other Studio panels:

When the panel floats it is fine but docked it is unreadable.

Thanks for your help with this bug. We have now resolved the problem with the fill/stroke's colours pop-up and will make the fix available in the next Mac beta release. The contrast issues with the panel will be addressed soon.
