Previewed message not distinguishable in the list
Last modified: 2008-07-31 21:46:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently previewed message in Evolution folder is not easily distinguishable
from the other messages in the message list, making it visually very hard to
find where you are. See the attached image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a message in Evolution folder. Make sure preview is turned on.
2. Go to another folder.
3. Return to previous folder, look at the list of messages and try to find the
current one (i.e. the one that's being previewed).
Can't see which message is actually being displayed in preview pane.
Was OK in F8.

Yeah, I am aware of this issue and even know what needs to be changed in order
to fix it. However, it then changes background of the folder stats that are
above the treeview with folders. There are some changes in Evolution that caused
this. Try Clearlooks theme to see what's the difference I speak about. Changing
the component to gtk-engine-nodoka (nodoka-theme-gnome contains metacity and
gnome metatheme only), but perhaps changing it to evolution would make more sense...
Any thoughts on this? What would you prefer? The workaround used in clearlooks
or nodoka setting?
Actually changing to the gtk-nodoka-engine... For some reason I was unable to do so in Epiphany under
F9. Also changing version to 9 as it's problem in Fedora 9, not Fedora 8 (as also metioned in the initial
Sorry, did I select 8 there? I meant 9.
When I switch to Clearlooks, the current row is clearly visible - that's a good
thing. I personally don't mind the fact that the folder stats area changes
colour as well.
Uhm... sorry, I haven't had time to fix it yet. But don't worry, I haven't
Sorry to be a pest. Just another ping...
Uhm, sorry to be so slacky... I really really really fix this this week.
Sorry for the slow response. I've just came with a way that both fixes this
issue and leaves folder stats are as is. I'll release new nodoka release with
this and abother batch of fixes and build it into fedora later today.
