Label colors

This feels too trivial even to mention, but it’s proving a real limitation for me.

I like to use OS X’s labels on my files, and I appreciate the fact that EF displays the label attribute. But the label colors in EF are so intense that they are seriously distracting. I find myself needing to choose whether it is more important for me to (a) label a file or (b) have it available in an EF database. Usually I’d rather have both. Is there any way that EF could use the gentler colors that the finder and other applications seem to use?

I’m thrilled with the application, by the way, and am very glad I registered.


I’m working on it. EagleFiler used to use its own gentler colors. Based on a user request, in 1.2.1 and later the colors match the ones in the menu in the Finder. The next step is to draw gentler versions of them in the records list, like in the Finder.

Ah, that would be great. Many thanks.

I’ve added this in EagleFiler 1.2.4.
