The colour listed as '
automatic' is used by the $NameColor and $BorderColor attributes; note the lowercase initial letter, automatic, as the spelling is case-sensitive. Importantly to note is this colour value cannot be customised by the user, unlike other named colours.
- For $NameColor, Tinderbox toggles the map title colour from black (#000) to white (#fff) and vice-versa depending on the colour value in 'Color'. If neither black nor white offers sufficient contrast, a yellow colour is used.
- For $BorderColor, the bevel colours used are lighter and darker gradations of the value specified for $Color so as to not contrast unduly with the main 'face' colour ($Color/$AccentColor) of the note (especially in Map view).
If automatic is displayed as one of a note's Displayed Attributes, the colour chip for 'automatic' always shows as a dark red (#6F0000) regardless of the colour actually used, e.g. $NameColor may show as white in Map view but as dark red in the note's colour chip. If Color-type attributes that do not support the 'automatic' token are set to the value 'automatic' the resulting colour actually used is #6F0000. In some later versions, this 'mis-set' colour equates to a green, #00D001.
