    When using the dark theme on the Mac, the area of the document map that indicates which lines of code are visible in the code window is too dark.  It's too similar to the color of the document map itself.  If it could be lightened a bit it would be much easier to see.  I believe this slider is suppose to be draggable as well.

      Hi Bruce,


      Thank you for contacting us with this.


      We are aware of the issue when lines in the document map are not well visible, and we are looking for a way how to change it. 

      As for making the document map draggable - we have investigated this, and found that implementing this option can take a lot of resources and we are not sure that our developers will work on this. However, this is present in our backlog, and if we will find a solution for easy implementation an ability to move code map across the IDE's UI - we will be happy to give you this ability.


      Regards,

      Kate

        Hi Kate,

        I'm sorry I wasn't very clear.  I wasn't referring to dragging the document map itself but the indicator that moves up and down the document map to indicate which portion of the code the user is looking at in the main window.  On the Mac this indicator is not draggable but I believe it should be.  It's also the thing I was referring to that cannot be properly seen when using a dark theme on the Mac.  I suspect this is because it's programmed to be slightly darker than the document map itself so that it stands out when using a light theme but on a dark theme it should be the opposite instead and be slightly lighter in color than the document map.

        Thanks!

          Hi Bruce,


          Thank you for your response and for clarifying the issue.


          This inconvenience also is known to us, and we will work on improving the visibility and adding an ability to move the indicator in one of the future versions of The Welkin Suite for Mac. 

          The issue caused by a MonoDevelop mechanism (TWS for Mac is based on it) and our developers are going to use additional approach to change this. 


          Thank you,

          Kate
