Can I select the colors used for colored tags, or are the 9 default colors fixed for eternity?
I use colored tags to visually organize citations and it's a good system, but Zotero's default colors are the strangest choices - two greens, two blues, two purples, but no red or yellow? It's such a strange pallet, to the point where it's less useful than it could be. But I see no way to change them; please advise! I am using the Mac client.
I know that blind color affected are not confortable with the old palette, but the most part of people using Zotero are not touched by this illness and could change the colors without any problem. Therefore I think it would a good idea if the users were able to change them or use the old palette, if they feel better with an other configuration.
Is there a setting or function name available that one could address in a plugin?
I appreciate the efforts at making Zotero more accessible, but I'm still having a great deal of trouble with the color palette as presented in version 22.214.171.124 for Mac. This may be due to whatever my particular type of colorblindness is though. I was just about to make a different ticket for the issue when I came across this thread. Also, Joseph mentioned that there are no reds but two of my tags are displaying as R:137 G:28 B:9 and R:152 G:85 B:124 ... is that normal?
Color tags which show up before the item and quick number assigning has huge potential and it is a shame it is so limited by the color options.
Bright yellow would be a good option for almost everyone. Another one is more variation in brightness: dark and light colors are easily discerned by color blind people.
Might be helpful as the symbol may more useful than a colour for some.
+1 to being able to set user-defined labels for each colour (e.g. Yellow = Key Point, Green = Thesis, or whatever)
