New color harmony option

When you’re picking a color scheme (from the “Colors / Settings” button at the top of your Protopage), a new type of color picker is now available.

If the “Restrict to harmonious colors” option is not ticked, then you will be able to choose any possible color. This gives you the freedom to pick bright and vivid colors.

However, that freedom can come at the cost of text being unreadable on some hue variants of the color you have picked.

If you tick the “Restrict to harmonious colors” option, this will assist you in choosing colors where text is readable on all hue variants of that color.

This is particularly useful if you are making use of many different hues in order to color-code the tabs in your Protopage.

    Thank you for this. One thing I have noticed on RSS feeds now is a faint dotted line under each news item. And in bookmarks there is a faint dotted line under each link. I’ve tried changing the background colour but it doesn’t change it always seems to be there.

    Not a big problem, but just something I noticed.

    Hi Steve, thanks for the feedback. We intentionally changed the look of RSS feeds a little.

    Before, each headline had a bolder underline link. However, this often made headlines bleed into each other when headline “line wrap” happened.

    We therefore switched out the much darker and bolder headline underlining with a lighter dotted “delimiter” between headlines. This is an automatically chosen color that is simply a lighter version of the color used for the text, and cannot be affected by changing the colors/settings background color.

    Hopefully the change isn’t too much of a shock, and that you might come to adjust to it and even prefer it over the next few days :)
