Switch sideview tab shadow?

Dean 3 months ago • updated 3 months ago 3

The shadow effect in the side view for tabs [Folders] and [Find] should be switched.

See the current implementation below.

[Folders] pops up to the eyes because it looks to be closer.

In fact, it's the [Find] tab that is active.

It's confusing because the editor tabs on the right follow the usual rule in which the active tab comes to the front. 

How about switching the shadow effect between [Folders] and [Find]?

It should not take too much time, I suppose...

I can see where you are coming from. It's actually supposed to look like a pressed-down button though - that's why it has a gradient - unlike the file tabs on the right side.

I copied this style from an earlier version of Apple's Pages - the current version of Pages uses a different style though (probably since Yosemite) - they use blue now as you can see in the following screenshot:

Ah, now it makes more sense :) Blue is one way.

I don't know how many people share my confusion, though.

In case you decide blue is not a good solution for Textastic, perhaps this is an involved design problem.

I'd appreciate if you could find the time to address the issue.
