Timer text: #2f9be2

Base : #000000
Border: #2f9be2

I adjusted your colours to be brighter and added some more colours along the same lines. I don't know if it might be a bit too bright or overpowering though.

Wow, I like those themes! I think there wont be problem with the brightness, at least for me hehe.

I've recently noticed that when the timer is open I can't use other softwares commands, for example, if I am in safari I can't use cmd + T to open another tab and if I change to the timer, the add time manually window has opened or if I'm in finder and I want to delete a file using cmd + backspace, the file doesn't delete, but instead the last time in the timer has been deleted.

Everything else is working perfectly!

Thanks! I've noticed that too. I need to investigate why it is doing that. It could be my fault or Electron's (the underlying app platform). I'm going to try and resolve it in the next couple of days.

Hey, I just pulled up my timer and all of my solves are gone.
Uh oh! Did you force quit or close Block Keeper in an unusual way? I'd like to know so I can investigate the reason behind this and resolve the issue. If you have any details of the session before and when you started that would be very useful. Did you keep a backup of your system files? (e.g Time Machine on Mac)

No, I just closed out of it normally last night.
Sorry this is effecting you. This issue only occurs VERY rarely. I haven't seen it in a long time and I thought I resolved it. Due to this rarity, I haven't figured out what causes it. Is data not being saved correctly or being interrupted? Is it not loading right? That's why any information relating to it is important. Did you rename any sessions for example and what to? It all helps.

First of all, I really like the timer, you did a great job DalDal.
I´m probably going to wait some more time, until the timer is even more developed and then use it as my main timer :).
I also have 2 small problems with the layout:
1. The screen of my laptop is very small, and when I do events with bigger scrambles, e.g. Megaminx, 5-7, I can only see parts of the scramble and I don´t want to scramble the first half, scroll down and scramble again.
2. It would be great if the list of times would automatically scroll down to the last solve, just like cstimer, because I want to see immediately what new average I just got and compare it to the previoius ones (at least sometimes)

I've been using this timer for a while and I love it.

I just wanted to know if you can get a look at your session/ao5/ao12 and copy and paste it like cstimer? Couldn't find it anywhere and if its not possible rn, I'd be really happy if you could add that :p
