Colour coding

Colour coding

  • Clearer colour coding of names makes it easier to see structure
  • Quotation marks around reference titles are now coloured
  • Punctuation and spacing before reference links is now not coloured
  • Much less colour coding in deleted text
  • ‘Note’ changed to pale yellow to stop it clashing with Volume Number
