"Conflict" Between Window Roundness and Result Selected

3 posts in this topic

Not really a "bug". But for a designer, this so-called "conflict" between Window Roundness and Result Selected almost drives me crazy. The "conflict" is shown as follows:

I see it could be fixed by adding window padding around. But personally I don't really love the padding idea. This is my first report. 

 

The second one is about the color. I set the "Result Selected Background Color" as RGB (0,122,255), but each time Alfred would change it into RGB (0,107,251) or something else. I don't get why, but as a designer, I can tell the differences between the two colors.

 

Those two reports above are nothing big, I just come here to share some personal feelings.

I've been experimenting with a new theme and found these funnies. The rounded corner doesn't work for every situation. Some of the corners are still square for different areas (Alfred prompt, Alfred prompt with incomplete keyword, Alfred file browser, and Alfred's clipboard menu).

I've merged these two bug reports. I've actually responded to this issue a few times on the forum already, but I'll leave these both in bugs so others can see.

 

There is a fundamental incompatibility with the type of high performance transparency backed window Alfred uses, and the native clipping rect (which macOS doesn't apply). I made a decision to allow people to create themes outside the logical bounds of the clipping rect as it ultimately gives more flexibility even though you can get some strange results.

 

In the future, I may look at changing this behaviour, or even adding a 'native window' window backing, but for now, this is likely to stay as is.

 

Cheers,

Andrew
