Draw background colors as wide as the column...for labels, too, please!

I like the wide colors - but please, could we also have that for colors that are applied via tags?

Actually I'm struggling with how to call it... :?

Currently we have:

Configuration | Information | Tags | Coloring style:
No coloring
Name column
Label column (caption)
Label column (symbol)
Whole row

I'm open to all suggestions incl. reordering...

Ooops - sorry :oops: - I noticed I made a fault! The colors are applied to the whole row (in Details-View).
But when you switch View>List, the background-colors related to color filters use the entire name-cell, whereas colors applied via Tags>Labels are only applied to the background of the actual text (but not the empty backgrund) - as shown in the screenshot.

They are applied to whole row because you set Configuration | Information | Tags | Coloring style to whole row.

Does that mean your wish has vaporized? Fine with me because I'd rather leave things as they are.

Well, my original wish has been transformed into: if Configuration | Information | Tags | Coloring style is set, also color entire cells in List-View (instead of applyint the color to the text-background only).

You mean if it is set to "whole row"?

OK, I guess that's probably expected. (I never really got the mindset of full-rowers... :whistle: )

Well, it's actually not that difficult - but the intellectual level at which full-rowers operate may be hard to grasp for simple-minded non-full-rowers 8) (need a <gd&r>-icon...)
