Re: How do you add names to the name generator?

I have not done this personally, but it looks like a self-generated .csv file of names is all you need. ...from HELP file: 20.3.1 Managing Your Own Name Lists: You can add your own custom name lists to the generator. They should be formatted so that all names are on a single line, and each name is s...

Re: How to change the background color of the Editor

Have you tried: TOOLS > OPTIONS > APPEARANCE > EDITOR > PAGE ? Click the white color chip, and choose a color you like. Hope that helps. I can identify with the blindingly white screen. I need something far more subdued. I mostly use the current beta, but this seems to work in the 1.9 version.

v.38

I can confirm.

I was able to change notes background colors on the next tab, however.

I'm actually thinking that what I am seeing is really not a bug, and is very likely expected behavior.

Re: editor opening in top ⅓ of doc...

I'm using the Windows beta (v36), but I experience what I thought was the same thing. Perhaps this is expected behavior, but it seems a little bit odd. It's probably the correct behavior, but when I'm coming back to either read the document, or scan for some particular passage, that's when I find it...

Re: Version 2.9.0.36

Ditto here. Were there possibly two separate icons in an earlier version. I also seem to recall observing both a vertical and horizontal choice.

Re: Can you bold the title for text documents in the outliner?

The default condition seems to be Bold.
Having the condition ticked, REMOVES bolding from those outline items that don't have a synopsis

Unticking that condition desribed above, turns ON the bolding for those that DON'T have a synopsis.

Re: Can you bold the title for text documents in the outliner?

Try FILE > OPTIONS > APPEARANCE > OUTLINER. Then, you may find that "Remove bold from titles with no synopisis" is ticked "on" by default. Untick that, and you should find that your titles of all outliner items are bolded.

Re: Bright Inspector in Dark Mode

There are a few threads discussing this overall issue of colors and contrasts. I've noticed the same, and I use the 'solarized dark' mode for ease on my eyes. However, that means the red underlining of typos is hard to see, the synopsis in outline view can't be seen. There are mentions that the cont...

Re: [Beta 36] On dark themes, open-toggle arrows for selected containers disappear

While I know there exists the ability to play with colors of in the Options tab, it becomes too fiddly to spend too much time on it. On my wish list might be a more robust selection of preformatted color themes....all worked out with appropriate contrasting colors for text, highlights, background, p...
