    TreeHouse build 20130731 posted.

    • The modified indicator on document tabs was changed to a flag icon. It
      used to be a small floppy disk icon which probably caused more confusion
      than clarification. The icon now adjusts to the color theme and turns
      red when the mouse pointer is over document tabs. Although this
      particular change may not sound like a big deal, the code that was added
      to implement this makes it easier to display additional indicators on
      document tabs without cluttering it up.

    • To temporary disable Quick Look feature when clicking/selecting files
      in project windows, hold the Shift key down. There's also an option in
      preferences to disable Quick Look (need a better name?).

    • And the most important addition... a new mascot for this series of
      builds! Courtesy of Gerard.

    I'm a little late posting this build. Hope this still counts!

      on release 731 the flag is black until you put the cursor on the
      tab line (anywhere) and then it turns red. I would prefer to
      have it red all the time.

        Having red flags on doc tabs all the time might be a little distracting
        in most cases. It'd also clash with some UI themes.

          As the purpose of the flag is to remind users that something has
          not been saved yet, having it be black is not as useful as having
          it be red all the time.
          Black flag is better than grey disk, for sure, and is better than
          a black asterisk at the end of the file name, but, IMHO, a red
          asterisk is better than a black flag.

            What's the right balance between having the information readily visible
            when you need it and making it compete for your attention when you don't.

            In my opinion, the flag is noticeable as it is plus it gives another
            visual cue by changing color when the mouse is over any tab. It's not
            uncommon to have the mouse in that area anyway for closing tabs and saving.

              would it be too hard to make it configurable ?

              My experience is that I only go to the tabs to close a file that
              (usually) has been open for 4-20 days. I jump right over it and
              click on UPLOAD. - unless, of course, I forget to save a file
              before testing, which bring us full circle.

                But why? Please tell me why. I need to understand! You've awaken my
                6-year-old brain! :)

                Why aren't you asking for blinking red flags?

                Why is moving the mouse to a tab such a chore?

                If you're wanting to save all modified files without moving the mouse:
                "File > Save extra > Save modified files (Ctrl+Q, Ctrl+S).

                If you're selectively saving certain files, you have to first read file
                names on tabs. In which case why isn't the flag next to those file names
                in the same color enough of an indicator?

                I'm not trying to make fun of your request. If anything I might be
                taking this too seriously. I sincerely want to understand so I could
                possibly make other parts of Kit UI better. And I feel like we can bug
                each other about this without resorting to name calling :) (unless of
                course you have a funny name for me)

                  would it be too hard to make it configurable ?

                  My experience is that I only go to the tabs to close a file that
                  (usually) has been open for 4-20 days. I jump right over it and
                  click
                  on UPLOAD. - unless, of course, I forget to save a file before
                  testing, which bring us full circle.

                  The problem is not failing to move the mouse to the tab. The
                  problem is not "recognizing" that I have modified 2 files and
                  just saving one. Which then results in the update failing and me
                  beating my head against the desk. I usually have 6 -10 files
                  open: 3-5 php files that all contribute to building a page, 1 css
                  for the page 1 reference for the page, 2-3 class files to do the
                  I/O for the page. It is easy to overlook the need to save a page.

                  This would work except I sometimes affirmatively do not want to

                    • The modified indicator on document tabs was changed to a
                      flag icon. It used to be a small floppy disk icon which
                      probably caused more confusion than clarification. The icon
                      now adjusts to the color theme and turns red when the mouse
                      pointer is over document tabs. Although this particular
                      change may not sound like a big deal, the code that was
                      added to implement this makes it easier to display
                      additional indicators on document tabs without cluttering
                      it up.

                    on release 731 the flag is black until you put the cursor on
                    the tab line (anywhere) and then it turns red. I would prefer
                    to have it red all the time.

                    bill

                    Having red flags on doc tabs all the time might be a little
                    distracting in most cases. It'd also clash with some UI themes.

                    Chami

                    As the purpose of the flag is to remind users that something has
                    not been saved yet, having it be black is not as useful as
                    having it be red all the time. Black flag is better than grey
                    disk, for sure, and is better than a black asterisk at the
                    end of
                    the file name, but, IMHO, a red asterisk is better than a black
                    flag.

                    What's the right balance between having the information readily
                    visible when you need it and making it compete for your attention
                    when you don't.

                    In my opinion, the flag is noticeable as it is plus it gives
                    another visual cue by changing color when the mouse is over any
                    tab. It's not uncommon to have the mouse in that area anyway for
                    closing tabs and saving.

                    Adding an asterisk, red or black, would double the number of modified
                    indicators on each tab so that's a no go.

                    But since you've been so patient with me I'll (reluctantly) add a config
                    option to change the color of tab icons.

                    Thank you for the feedback Bill. I appreciate it!

                      I'm not trying to make fun of your request. If anything I
                      might be
                      taking this too seriously. I sincerely want to understand so I
                      could possibly make other parts of Kit UI better. And I feel like
                      we can bug each other about this without resorting to name
                      calling
                      :) (unless of course you have a funny name for me)

                      "AI"

                      Now I recognize this is entirely my error. But you have saved me
                      from so many errors in the past I am spoiled. Empirically, a red
                      asterisk would probably catch my eye better than a black flag
                      (but I
                      won't know until I test it) and a red disk even better. A blinking
                      red flag, on the other hand) would pull my attention form the
                      text I
                      am editing.

                      How about trying a red asterisk instead of the black asterisk
                      following the file name. Unobtrusive and should not mess up color
                      schemes.

                      Adding an asterisk, red or black, would double the number of
                      modified indicators on each tab so that's a no go.

                      there is already an asterisk at the end of the file name for
                      modified files. Now it id black.

                      But since you've been so patient with me I'll (reluctantly) add a
                      config option to change the color of tab icons.

                      my heart beats in anticipation.

                      Thank you for the feedback Bill. I appreciate it!

                      I am sure that is "sometimes !"

                        It was removed after the flag icon was added:
