    You can use any of these basic colours just by typing in their name (or hex if you would like) https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_colors.asp
    There is also an in-depth colour picker here if you have a more specific colour in mind https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp
    Hope this is helpful

    Malkom, that's a very interesting bug. I made a small change which should prevent this from happening in the next version (coming in a week or so). Have you seen it happen before or have any other information about when it occurred? Thanks :)

    It has happen two or three times, the other times it were megaminx solves that was 38s instead of the 55s they really were. I have no clue why it happen, I always have chrome, blockkeeper, spotify and a few messenger programs running so I don't think thats the reason it went slow.

    The time is always displayed in seconds, when doing 5x5 solves I always have to convert the time in min, is there a way to change that ?

    EDIT : Oops I didn't see the option format time, fixed :)

    I found out today that for bigger averages Block Keeper removes only the best and the worst solve. I think usually the top and bottom 5% are removed, so could you change that for ao50 and ao100? Also, it would be nice to see standard deviations for all the different averages, not just the session.

    I have a white background and black base. If I put the scramble color to black, when hovering over a time in the list the scramble there is also black and I can't see it. Could I have the option to set colors for the current scramble and the scramble for a time separately?

    Block Keeper 1.2 has been released. It focuses on improving the tool system and adding many suggestions throughout
    https://dallasmcneil.com/projects/blockkeeper/
    • Multiple tool support
    • Added metronome tool
    • Higher resolution tools for higher definition displays
    • Option to video record inspections and just after solve
    • Option to toggle scrambles in time lists
    • Option to include a scramble while manually adding times
    • Small menu improvements
    • Event statatistics tool bug fixes
    • Various bug fixes
    I have finished university for the year and have much more time to work on Block Keeper in the next 3 months. I hope to release updates much more frequently in this time. As usual, if you have suggestions, let me know.

    Malkom: I hope this update fixes the issue for you, please let me know if it is still inaccurate

    Elo13: Excellent point, it should remove the top/bottom 5% for averages above 12, my bad. I will change the scrambles in the menu to be the text colour as well. I'll look into standard deviations for each average and maybe a running mean menu as well.

    Right here
    For averages of 12 you just remove the fastest time and slowest time, not the top and bottom 5%. For averages of 50+, you would use the 5% I think
