Thank you. This is very cool.
That is just so brilliant. Thank you so much. It is really useful.
Thanks for ur time and effort. Much appreciated
Thank you for this! Do group icons only work with indexed groups, since that is what is accessible via the Finder?
wow, really nice… feature suggestion for @cgrunenberg > please allow to change this in the database properties in a future DT release
Speaking of coloring group icons: if you set the Labels preference to Classic, and add a label to a group, it is supposed to color the group icon. However, the colors are unpredictable. For example, I have these colors set:
And these four groups should be (in order) labeled: red, green, blue, and yellow:
But that ain’t what I getting.
Yeah, I also tried that and the result was indeed not the one I expected.
That’s why I did the Group Icons. As for the labels, I settled on having them as dots. Less intrusive and indeed true to the chosen colors.
Thanks for the tip, now I can choose icons to put up there.
The label colors essentially act like they’re in Multiply mode on the underlying icon. @cgrunenberg would have to do something like setting the icon to greyscale and a lower tint, like 10%, or use a white icon to get the full color of the label. However, that would be for him to assess and decide.
Many thanks for taking the time to create these coloured icons, much appreciated. Is it possible to get the default blue group icon - visible in the inspector - to also show in the sidebar by default, rather than the grey version?
Only if you customize a new folder icon (as blue) and change it the Inspector. I included a new icon in my collection (same download link: http://pc.cd/dq9) that mimics it.
You can see it here (DT3 Group 0):
Thank you! I really appreciate this.
@valente, could I be very cheeky and request a set of inbox icons in the same colours as the group/database ones?! Feel free to say no, of course!
I updated the link http://pc.cd/dq9 with new icons, more organized in terms of colors. I’m also including the inbox ones that you requested.
As a bonus, I also made a Global Inbox substitute icon to drag to the Dock if someone wants it (I changed mine since I didn’t like the official one).
Oh, and instructions on how to use them. Hopefully, with no mistakes in them.
Again, thank you very much for these, they’re fantastic. I especially like the alternative inbox
This is super cool! Well done I hope these sync to mobile one day
I agree. This is one of the best things I have learnt from these forums.
I came across this feature by coincidence reviewing one of the youtube videos of devonthink where the guy had all his icons neatly organised. (but did not know I can actually change the higher-level icons of the databases themselves > thanks for sharing this:)
That is what I ended up with after that (best thing - this does work in DTTG as well):
A quick search for mac icons will lead to lots of websites where this can be downloaded.
Label colouring works great as well:
Made a few more versions of the Global Inbox icon. You can download them at the same spot: http://pc.cd/dq9
For a general view of all:
And one in place (dock):
