I think it’s cool that your’e trying to do something different with the Ribbon bar…but I find it distracting and after using it for a while I still have difficulty quickly identifying the name of the tab that is open in the editor. For example, Console.py is the file being edited in the image below but at first glance my brain is confused for a while. It gets confused by the blue color of Frame.py and the underline in Console.py
It may be that in time it will be trained to quickly understand the difference but I’m not counting on it because these conventions are not used in any other programs I use. Lots of programs use tabs and they all use a tab shape to indicate which file is selected in the notebook.
I’m not against other people using this new style if they like it but I would really appreciate an option to get a tab shape back. It would also be nice if I could disable the color coding of items in the ribbon/tab list. I feel like at a certain point you’re encoding too much information in this space. It distracts and slows me down.
That’s odd, it’s working fine for me on WIndows. Using the exact same settings as you, aside from the interface colors. Could you try using Classic for your Interface/widget/editor colors? Just to see if it makes a difference.
I think we might need to have a look at this. There have been a fair number of people (relatively speaking) that had issues with it not being immediately obvious what file was selected. I don’t have tabs though so I have no suggestions
You just need to distract tab with a lighter/darker background instead of drawing an underline for it imo. Or make coloring the name of a tab configurable. Maybe there are some users who doesn’t need SCC information in their tabs (which may not be that obviously if your colors are not yellow for modified, red for removed and yellow for changed :P)
