Make sure you try out the new feature that lets you list contents of a folder sorted by date and with dates shown.. could be useful for documents folder nodes.

LaunchBar Commander BMP background color files for download (v.alpha)
« Reply #52 on: July 20, 2015, 02:36:37 PM »
For me, it was love at first sight with LBC, been looking for something like this for a while now.  That is excepting that I wasn't exactly crazy about the available (Delphi) background colors.  So I went ahead & mixed some of my own, which you can download right here via the attached .zip file.  Even though the .zip archive is only 8k, it expands to 14 different color background files — each 254k.  The tiling BMP images are each 360px square.  Unzip the archive & use the palette illustration to find a bgcolor that you like.  From inside your LBC Preferences you can then set your own Background Display as Background Image and point it to your unzipped BMP file.  The BMP filenames look something like this:  360px#224455_dk-blue-gray.bmp — the #224455 is the hexadecimal (HTML) code for a dk-blue-gray color.  The colors seem to shift going between .BMP & .PNG formats.  LBC wants BMP for backgrounds.

You might find that the label text on icons is more readable on these flat backgrounds.  Plus, you can change your LBC text color!
Big thx to mouser for his excellent & fun productivity software!

Enjoy!   8)

As a result of playing with this, I have found that LBC doesn't support %APPDRIVE% in the path to a background image file...  :o

Nice work -- I may need to steal your idea and make some more colours, though. :D

Oblivion —
steal away.  I tend to like grayed-out or fogged-out (low intensity) colors, while others prefer glossy, metallic, high intensity colors.  I'll try to build a few more when I can get to it.

Tomos —
I'll try to post a screenshot.  Very busy right now.  I don't have much to show because I've only been working with LBC for a couple days now.  Great program.

Image shows 4 of my flat color, bitmapped backgrounds for LBC — only the vertical column at right:
#224466 (dark bluish), #663333 (dark reddish), #336666 (tealish), #000000 (black)
See earlier comments on how to download the 14 BMP tiling backgrounds.
