Considering Color Coding All the Tiers of Settings in a SmartSDR Category?

Worked with some upgraded software we professionally use, and the upgrade had a nice feature that similar task features, options, deciders, messages, input screens and output screens/choices shared color coding to help the work flow.

Would something like this be assistance to SmartSDR?  Thinking that with the need and legacy of menu organization it might be useful.

    One thing I hope is done is to minimize the need for a person to be able to identify critical events, etc. based upon color alone.  A goodly number of us are color-blind and have great difficulties with software that insists one be able to distinguish colors in order to use it!

    That is an important consideration, and basically 1 in 5 has some level reduced color sensitivity.

    Just looked at the software that inspired my comment, and noticed they use a different fill/border as well as color.

    Speaking of color it is important to carefully select colors and density for contrast reasons, as well as consideration for the color-blind.

    Thank you for the reminder of this important need.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
