Description

It is very difficult to tell if the raw overexposed toggle button is activated or not on my system when there is no overexposure in the RAW. I find myself toggling the button many times to make sure its deactivated (which is difficult to see if there is littel or no overexposure). I suggest making the button grayscale when it is not active and colored when it is active.

Please see the attached images which illustrate this suggestion.

you can easily change the background value of the buttons making them more visible. You need to modify the darktable.css file. It's no so painful.

You've just to find the "#iop-plugin-ui * button" section and change the value of background-color from 1.4 (default) to something lighter, like 3.0

I'm attaching my personal copy of darktable.css

_#iop-plugin-ui * button {
padding:1pt;
background-color: transparent;
}
#lib-plugin-ui * button:hover,
#iop-plugin-ui * button:hover,
button:hover {
background-color: shade(@selected_bg_color, 1.7);
}
#lib-plugin-ui * button:checked,
#iop-plugin-ui * button:checked,
button:checked {
background-color: shade(@selected_bg_color, 1.4);
}

#lib-plugin-ui checkbutton *,
#iop-plugin-ui checkbutton * {
margin-right:4pt;
}_
