Clutter Free – Dark mode in tab search (Supporters only)

If you are like me – dark theme system wide, and brightness and contrast turned low – then you may like this update.

A dark theme is now available in the tab search window. It applies consistently across all three tabs – search, duplicates and actions. The theme may be chosen on the options page, or quickly switched from the actions tab.

The dark theme is only available to supporters.

Other updates

  1. The direct switch indicator marks links that are already open in another tab. The indicator icon now takes a slightly darker shade on lighter pages, and a lighter shade on pages with dark backgrounds.
  2. Links in the footer – feedback, other apps, update notes – are gently highlighted when hovered.
  3. Bug fix – ‘Ignore hash’ setting had stopped working after the last update
  4. Potential bug fix – Updated some code to ensure multiple tab search windows do not open

That’s all, folks!

Changing task priority: p + a..z
Changing task priority: p + a..z

New: More keyboard shortcuts

Continuing with yesterday’s updates, here are the promised keyboard shortcuts:

  • Switch theme: ‘v‘ followed by ‘d‘ark or ‘l‘ight
  • Switching highlight colours: ‘h‘ followed by
    • g‘ for grey,
    • b‘ for Rebecca purple,
    • v‘ for green,
    • y‘ for yellow, or
    • o‘ for orange

A list of these, and all other keyboard shortcuts is available here.

Helper for multi-key keyboard shortcuts

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Added helper modals to assist with multi-key keyboard shortcuts – changing task priority (‘p‘ + ‘a..z‘), switching theme (‘v‘ + ‘d/l‘), and switching highlight colours (‘h‘ + ‘g/b/v/y/o‘).

When the the first key is pressed, a small window appears in the bottom right with hints about next key options available.

This also helps prevent unknowingly changing priority by indicating priority changing mode is on.

As usual, please share any bugs, or new feature suggestions that you come across.

Cheers!

Todo.txt for Chrome – New dark theme

Todo.txt for Chrome - dark theme with green highlight
Todo.txt for Chrome – dark theme with green highlight

New: A dark theme (trial)

A theme for the coming dark winter months (except for the lucky ones down under). It works with all the in-built highlight colours, and on all app screens. Switch between the themes from the options page. I will soon also provide a keyboard shortcut for switching themes.

(A few more screen shots are shared near the bottom of this post)

Note: The dark theme is available to everyone at the moment. However, I plan to turn the dark theme, and some new planned features, into paid upgrades.
All the functionality already in the app will stay free, including any core updates added in the future.

Other updates

  • Tweaked the appearance of side drawer, including sliding it in and out
  • Removed extra highlighting from the checkboxes and edit & delete links
  • Small bug fixes

There are again a lot of changes in this version. This may mean that a few bugs may have escaped my testing. Please do share any bugs, or feature glitches that you come across.

Cheers!
