RFE: dwrite to control dock badge colors

Reported by loki der quaeler | November 5th, 2021 @ 05:54 PM

The current counter docker badge fill colors can make can make reading the white counter text suboptimal; it would be nice to be able to configure this — don't necessarily need a GUI, a dwrite would be peachy too.

Thanks for considering.

    You mean a setting to set the text color of icon badge counters?

    It won't be very hard to add I believe, but you are the first one to ask :)

    I was thinking of setting the fill color - something about the white text on the pumpkin-yellow of the lower left badge makes me quite grumpy about my rods & cones; i think keeping the text color uniform and be able to make the fill a different color would stay more consistent with the already heterogeneous badge fill motif.

    Thanks again -l

    Setting the fill color is a more likely feature. It's actually already supported, but there's no interface for setting it and it's pretty hard to do from a Terminal window.

    I'll note to make sure this is part of whatever rewrite I'll eventually have to make of Counters preferences (which has always been pretty broken as a user interface).
