provide a new and easy way of identifying your items in SuperTab.
This is done by overlaying the names on top of item icons. For exmaple:
Now your files can go from this:
But its not just files that you can do this with. You can also display the names of other types too. Some examples:
Meta-Folders, Screen Shots, Auto Types & Saved Searches can also display their names.
By default SuperTab does not displaly item names. However, you can turn on item name overlays in SuperTabs Settings.
Open SuperTab Settings in your System Preferences, click the "More..." button and then select the "Appearance" Tab. Then select the item types you want to have overlay their names on their icons:
In addition to overlaying item names, you can still also customize the appearance of many types of items by applying a badge or a tint color to their icons.
To decorate an item with a badge or tint color, simply right-click (or control-left-click) on the item to bring up its configure menu. Highlight the "Decorate" menu item and then choose either an image or a tint color from the sub menu.
You can apply an image AND a color if you wish.
This lets you take these otherwise identical items:
And convert them into unique and instantly identifiable items:
To remove a badge from an item, simply bring up the item's configure menu again and select the "NONE" badge. Similarly, to remove a tint, select the "NONE" tint.
By default items will overlay their names on their icons. But you can instead set a custom label for any item that supports overlays if you prefer. Simply select "Set Custom Label..." from the Decoration Menu and enter the label you wish to use.
