I uploaded a new build 349 with increased channel tree spacing. This way favicons are less cluttered. Thanks rodeoclown for the suggestion.

Could you eventually make this view with favicons optional? I liked this previous normal view... :roll:

I actually used a hidden option to disable favicons in development. I will publish the option in next build. 349 or 350 will probably be this month's public beta release.

hi,

I really like the favicons, really helps to "separate" channels and select the right one in the nav tree !!!

Any abstract of what the 'highligh watch news' option is supposed to do ?

An other topic regarding news watches, did you ever think about taking the <item><category> field in account to search for words ? I'm using channels providing this <category> field and I'd really like to highlight some articles based on this condition ...

Regards

It allows you to enable/disable the coloring of messages belonging to a particular news watch on the reading panel.

Thanks DivinoAG. That's exactly the option for.

Build 350 has a GreatNews.ini option:

[Advanced]
NoFavicons=Y

To turn favicons off.

Cool, thanks. But one more question - is the spacing gone then too? Because old view without favicons and without spacing was just right for me... thanks for support.

favicons are great but ...
the text size is just a shade too small to read comfortably (and i know that favicons should arguably id the channels) but ...
is it customable?

800x600/17"/24bit

Could you please post a screenshot? The font is too small for screen like 1600*1200, but should be ok for 800*600? Build 349 actually doesn't hard code font size anymore.

Ehh.. how I hate such changes.. I know I may whine a little, but everything was fine with old icons, old spacing so why trying to make good things better while still you have plenty other stuff on your to-do list.. but all in all it's your program and I'm just regular user so I'll have to accept your changes (or use old builds, hmm..). For now I'm just hoping that old spacing will return some day, may be as very-hidden option ;) Anyway, thanks for being so patient :)
