it sounds like the actual root problem is that checked cards don’t appear ‘checked’ enough?
No, I’m pretty sure the root problem is, when you check off a todo, due to the strikethrough styling, it is hard to read the text.
That’s why ethan uses a
[[Done]] tag – so that he can tell which tasks are done without having the strikethrough obscure the text.
Hmm… I read the comment as once you check something off, the strikethrough makes it a bit too difficult to read what was written on the card.
Edit: Ben beat me to it.
I’m using Kinopio more as a planner (again) and that makes consider this request with more interest. I think when I’m reviewing everything I’ve done for the day, the strikethrough makes it a little tedious to read (although it is not terrible). I tried out a few other examples just to see:
I’m not sure which I like the most yet.
Faded looks great! Feels right
Faded would probably make the most sense from a differentiation standpoint.
So excited to check off tons of cards!
Faded feels solid!
Another option, that I’m just familiar with from Notion, is faded with strikethrough. So the current version, just faded. This may not work as well on Kinopio with the font perhaps…
Here’s faded with strikethrough. To me this is counter to the main goal, which is to make checked todos be easily distinguishable from open todos, but also be readable
I can also change just the strike through line color if it helps. For me once a thing is ‘done’ I’m not really trying to read it frequently or quick reference it so I like that done feels done
