I'm not sure what you're talking about here, but Marvin must definitely keep all
of the font and solid-background colours it offers now! The incredible amount of available colours is, once again, one of Marvin's strongest selling points. Just because some of us prefer textured backgrounds, doesn't mean the choice should be reduced in any
way for those users who prefer solid-colour backgrounds.
What I proposed to Kris is to subdivide the current list of colours into subcategories
, because the list is very long to scroll through right now if you (for example) wish to access colours from the bottom of the list.
So, the new list of colours could include folders
for shades of
The colours would be a lot easier, quicker to browse this way.
Also, another such folder could be set up for the feature we're waiting for: textured backgrounds.
That category could be subdivided, too, if necessary: nature-emulating textured backgrounds, photographic backgrounds, textures of specific colours, custom (user-uploaded) backgrounds, etc., etc.
So let's not reduce
the current wealth of the colours palette in any way. Instead, let's just organize
it better. The more choice Marvin users get, the better. The important thing is to organize
all the plentiful options in a meaningful way, so that they are easy to navigate and cannot confuse the user.
