    • Feedback Policy:

      Description

      https://developer.atlassian.com/design/latest/colors.html says
      "Don't rely on color alone to convey state or meaning". The selected issue in GH boards is indicated by color only.

      One other way to communicate this information might be for GH to make the border of the card thicker? The same problem exists with the colors of selected and unselected flagged issues.

      This was also discussed at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18241838/how-do-i-change-color-of-selected-issue-in-greenhopper-planning-board/18263886#18263886

        I agree with that.

        I have received several complaints that Pale blue #ebf2f9 is hardly or sometimes not even visible on certain screens. Some users cannot see which issues are selected. Besides adding a little bit more contrast, having other indications as mentioned before would be really useful.

        Hi,

        Thanks for the feedback. We're aware of this issue and we're looking into ways we can convey the selected state without relying on pale blue, which as you say is quite hard to distinguish from white on low contrast monitors. One solution is to visually "connect" the cards to the detail view which we're exploring.

        Unfortunately I can't comment on when we might get around to pushing out an update to fix this issue.

        Cheers,
        Benjamin Humphrey
        Designer, JIRA

        A quick fix would be to use #b3cde8 instead of #ebf2f9 in batch.css#2622. Unfortunately, this seems to involve changes in gh-cards.less.css; these changes might have other effects as well.
        For us, #ebf2f9 does not work for Agile Boards that are displayed using a beamer/projector.
