Description carlo 2021-02-18 19:45:01 UTC
SUMMARY
Set more contrast in the panel icons when the application is minimized.
You could also choose a different color, now it is almost invisible with both breeze and dark breeze.
This wasn't a problem with the old task manager, but with the new task manager (icons only) it is.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Open an application
2. minimize it
3. 
OBSERVED RESULT
you will notice that the contrast on the default themes is minimal, almost non-existent.


EXPECTED RESULT
the icon should show more prominently the application status.

Yeah this is a fair point.
Comment 2 spamless.9v5xj 2022-07-29 11:40:42 UTC
I'd like to add that currently the contrast level is below the WCAG requirement for accessibility, so... maybe the importance should be upped slightly?
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2022-07-29 16:22:14 UTC
Thoughts, Fushan? Maybe we could make the app icons for minimized windows slightly transparent?
