Hard to distinguish which tab is active in version 8.7

I recently upgraded from SecureCRT 8.1 to 8.7. In the new version, I am having a hard time finding which is the active tab. In 8.1, there was a red x on the right side of the active tab that made it very easy to spot.

In 8.7, the only difference I have seen is the background is very slightly lighter grey than the other tabs. I tried a few color schemes hoping one of them would improve it, but it didn't. Is there an option to bring the red x back, or a way to specify the active tab color to fix this?

Hi dangerski,

Are you on Mac or Windows?

Color *schemes* are not going to affect tab colors, but *color themes* (available only on Windows presently) does. If on Windows, the VS2013 Dark (View -> Themes) makes the active tab gray while the others are black.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database for the ability to make the active tab stand out more. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include Feature Request - Forum Thread #14061 in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

Hi Brenda, this is on a Mac. Thank you for submitting the feature request. I changed my Mac from Dark Mode to Light, and the contrast is a bit higher on the active tab, so that helps some, but it would be great to get a better fix for this.

It would be nice if the color scheme choices had a active tab color that was different (possibly with the background and font color being reversed from what a non active state is).

I don't have a problem with the way most color schemes look, but it could be made much more obvious for sure.

Hi Reno,

As noted in the post from two days ago, this thread has been added to a feature request to make the active tab more obvious.
