Editing themes for conditional formatting


#1

Hi,

I’m using the latest version of TP 3 and have edited the user.less file to add some custom CSS examples, however the live changes mentioned in the docs don’t seem to work.

Also, I’m trying to add a simple conditional format on items that start with [RESPONSE] (highlight in red) assume this is the place to do this ?

Live updates should still be working, at least they seem to be working for me. I wonder if your theme has an error (or is using unsupported CSS feature) in it that’s causing problems. Would you mind posting the theme here?


#3

It’s been awhile since I’ve played with my theme, but I remember that if I rebooted Taskpaper after opening the user.less file, the live changes worked.

It basically went:

/makes changes to user.less file
Me: Wait what no live changes?
/reboots Taskpaper and makes more changes to user.less file
Me: There’re my live changes!

Generally it should work without having to do this… maybe that was an old bug or something specific to your machine that I need to address. Also note that the file changed… you need to update theme.less nowadays. Thanks!

Typo on my part! (Does it count as a typo when the whole word is wrong?) I wouldn’t be surprised if it was an issue unique to my machine. I haven’t played around with my theme for awhile (since I got it where I want it.)

Thanks this is working now.
