Search Field Highlighting
OK, I like the idea of highlighting the search field to help communicate that content is being filtered by an active search (see latest sneaky peak). But...

Am I the only one who thinks the aesthetics of the current implementation could use some [I]refinement[/I]? It just doesn't feel like it fits with OmniFocus' otherwise handsome exterior.

(1) First off, the color is quite jarring. Maybe that's a good thing. But, hmm, this is going to take some getting-used-to. Is there nothing that could be done to make it seem more [I]fitting[/I]?

(2) This is my real issue: after typing in a search term (and the field changes color), the magnifying glass and little "X" button drop several pixels lower than they originally appeared. Yeah, it's purely cosmetic, but it gives the impression of being half-baked and shoddy. That'll be cleaned up, right?

Hmm yes, it is a bit bright isn't it! I like that it's so obvious, but maybe tone it down a bit?

Option is "Styles"?

Oh, I hadn't considered that. I like that idea. That way you could even set it to white if you wanted to "turn it off" completely.

Ahh, relief. :) The magnifying glass icon and little "X" no longer shift when a search term is entered in the field (r104520).

I can live with the bright color highlight; I'm already getting used to it.

Revision 104538: the search field highlight looks great now! Thanks, Omni!
