I don't like the light on the text, definitely.

Amazing shots anyway :)
The light on the text? You mean the shadow? It's only in the tokens that have a previewer. Not sure about it though, I'd love suggestions :)
But I definitely need something more subtle than a color change.
Maybe a very subtle color change. Or if you want to keep the text-shadow, desaturate it and maybe make it brighter. I think it's the color of the text-shadow that looks funny.
It's the same hue as the background, just more opacity & less lightness....
Super awesome Lea. Love what you're doing here! :)
What a great idea Lea, I can't wait to play with this. How about altering the background color for those values with a preview? It may not be quite as pretty, but it will be more noticeable.
@Joshua: I thought about it, but I think it wouldn't be subtle enough.
Ok, fair enough. I'm sure you will figure out the best way to do it!
It's a little hard to give suggestions considering the lack of context we currently have (hint hint) :P
Release this please!! You're a f'ing genius!
I do agree with the others about the text. From a typographical standpoint, I'd be very conservative when "designing" the text. 99% of the time, it's recommended to leave text as is, or, have one subtle attribute, like a thin shadow OR highlight.
If you find yourself having to "design" the text, something is usually going awry or the typeface was a poor choice. Okay, so you're asking for a suggestion …
Why not just use background highlighting? Rather than modifying the actual text, change the background subtly. That way, you preserve the text and it's readability, but you direct attention to it for usability.
Thanks Justin. I'm trying to release it asap, but coding an undo/redo stack is really hard (and since the UndoManager API isn't supported anywhere, it has to be done manually). Once I do that and fix some buggies, it'll be out :)
Lol, I have no clue what you just said, but I like the ASAP part :P
i am *very* excited about this. Looking sweet so far.
