Custom Color Label Colors

Color coding is really important to me. So much so, that in WorkFlowy I used to tag things as #red, #blue, etc. just to get around this. It’s awesome Dynalist has this and even better than you can use keyboard shortcuts for it.

But, letting me customize colors would be much better. I am color-blind, so I need to play around to find colors that I can differentiate easily. Also, I already have a system in my head for exactly what colors I want to use because I generally keep it consistent between all apps. For now, I’ll keep using my color tags. :grin:

From the blog post:

We plan to offer customization of the colors sometime in the future. If you need that really badly though, do let us know.

Sounds like a pretty good enough reason to me.

Yes, as @JP1 said, we’re planning to do it at some point :slight_smile:

私も一貫した色のシステムを持っているので、色のカスタマイズ機能を切に望んでいます。特に、ピンク色は私にとって重要な色です。もしプロ版にその機能があれば、私は喜んでそれにお金を払うでしょう。

I also have a consistent color system, so I really want the color customization feature. In particular, pink is an important color for me. If the pro version has that feature, I will gladly pay for it.

Hi Gigacee,

You can customize the colors using custom CSS, a PRO feature. I changed my color-1 to be a light green by pasting this into the Custom CSS box in Dynalist settings:

.set-color-label[data-color="1"], .Node-contentContainer.mod-color-label-1 {
    background-color: #ddffcc;
}

素晴らしいです!

それは私が Pro 版に課金するのに十分な理由です。

ありがとうございます!

Great!

That’s a sufficient reason to pay for Pro plan.

Thank you!

Perhaps this belongs in another thread that I haven’t found yet…

Probably the biggest feature I was hoping to find in Dynalist vs Workflowy was an ability to assign colours to #tags.

Obviously this would need to be custom colours, so when you do add a colour selector for item colours, PLEASE also consider allowing Pro users to assign colours to selected tags from their tags pane. This is probably doable with a whole lot of work in custom CSS that would need constant updating, so not really a solution.

I think it’s a good idea to post a separate feature request about your use case, as it’s pretty different from the OP. Would be sad to see your request hidden here…
