Sure – and sorry for the delay – I was on a business trip.
Below is an example screenshot of the (label) color gradients in Path
Finder which I want to exchange with a modern style flat color like in
TotalFinder (see below the PF screenshot).
I know similar questions have been asked before several times by other
users but nothing happened here since years – even brand new PF8 shows
the old fashioned gradient color style.
So what do I have to do to "switch off" the label color gradient? I've
tried to do it even myself in PF's source files, but couldn't find
anything there. The gradients are simply very annoying for me (and seems
for a lot of other users) in the daily use of Path Finder. It shouldn't
be that hard to implement a solution since Path Finder offers already a
lot design adjustment options.
The problem is that PathFinder uses a color gradient rather than plain color when rendering label colors. This makes it very difficult to read the filenames when the icon size is small - such as 42 pt. It would be nice to remove the color gradient and simply use a plain color when rendering label colors to make filenames easier to read.
