Tweaking TitleBackgroundColor for productivity
Sep 28th, 2011, 11:47am
 
... filed under "why didn't I think of this before" ...

Was looking idly at a document and thought, "gee, it would be nice to set the TitleBackgroundColor attribute of my template notes to a different color than other notes". This will make it a tad easier to distinguish between different types of notes when a handful are open at the same time.

I created a prototype; set the TitleBackgroundColor attribute in the prototype; created a stamp to set notes to that prototype; stamped my template notes with the prototype. Done.

(Apologies to both Mark's if this is already documented.)

For TB novices, you won't necessarily see Russ' effect unless you've also set the prototype to the non-default setting of showing the note title ($Name) in the text window. To show titles in this way, there are various ways to turning it on:

Reminder: for this specific use case, the note should be set as a template as well as a prototype, so that notes created with the prototype will be templates.

Alternatively, create one or more prototypes with varying attribute properties for display and apply them to spoecific notes as desired when the new note is created (e.g., select one of the prototypes at note creation).
