Rating stars (color) and reverse choice in color bar
« on: January 11, 2017, 03:01:59 pm »
1. Rating stars on the contact sheets are currently black on dark grey: could the stars be white for faster identification?
2. Currently, using the color class bar to limit the contact sheet view to those images with X,Y, color classes, one has to turn off all the other colors; wouldn't it be faster (or at least an option in preference pane) to do the reverse: click on the one (or however many) color classes and only those images with those choices would remain visible--the color class bar would automatically grey or dim the remaining, non-chosen colors.

No, but you can customize the background color to increase the contrast if you like.

You can do that by holding down the 'Modifier Key' (Shift on Windows, Option on Mac) and clicking on the color you want to see.  All other color classes will be turned off.  This also works for the star ratings.  If you want to add back in more color classes, then click on them without the Modifier Key held down.
