xx custom color boxes
« Thread started on: Feb 5th, 2006, 03:18am »

Hello,

for some strange reason, I am unable to define/customize the 14 custom color boxes in order to use the random color feature. For some reason the default colors keep coming back. The define color box is grayed out under the custom color boxes.

thanks

Not a strange reason - I just never wrote the code to save and restore those 16 boxes. Partly because I don't think it's important enough, and partly because the two "special" random colour boxes could then get lost.

oh I see.

I don't know if I speak for everyone else, but an option to randomize the styles or my choice of colors for new notes would be useful to me. I'm currently using the styles to specify different colors and that would be useful to have them randomize rather than having to manually specify a style for each new note. I wanted to use the white custom box that way, but I don't really like the custom colors that are available.

BUt I guess you are not creating the new version just for me... I just swithed from atnotes to stickies because stickies has more features that I want except for the feature of randomizing new notes to my preferrential list of colors..

Anyhow, thanks for creating the software and providing it for free! It's very useful. smiley

Stickies can already do this - see the sixth paragraph of the "Styles and Skin" page in the help!

It's a shame that ATNotes died - I always saw it as my main "competition" and it's good to be kept on my toes, eh?

I looked at the sixth paragraph of styles and skins again.

If I understand it correctly, stickies can randomize colors, but not randomize colors of my own choosing. I prefer really light pastel colors and not the custom colors that are in the 14 color boxes, such as black and other colors.

Well if possible, for the new edition, please consider adding the feature that will allow the user to randomize the styles or randomize new notes to our own color choices. A minor issue.

thanks a lot!
