6.70b1 to b5 downloaded headers not saving as gray color

Postby johnisme » Sat Feb 20, 2016 4:19 pm

When i download files the header background turn gray but i find when i close newsbin pro 6.70 and open it up again the downloaded headers are no longer gray,just the regular green background,in 6.62 the downloaded files always stay gray,the previous files downloaded with 6.62 stay gray,when i reinstall 6.62 the gray backgrounds start working again on new downloads,is there any settings I'm missing that changes this feature?

In the options. Under "Switches" make sure "Auto-Mark old" is set. That's the only way Newsbin will automatically change green posts to gray.

I think I get it now.

Are they showing the downloaded icon? If no:

In the options select "Open Data Folder" then exit Newsbin. Delete the file "Downloadmarker.db3". This is the file that tracks downloads. Then try some downloads and see if they show the "Downloaded" icon.

If yes, check the "Colors/Fonts" section of the options. Make sure the downloaded color is what you want.
