  • (2021-07-28) Anjal Patel: Best extension for Workflowy. Its great for prioritizing the tasks.
  • (2021-01-06) Carlos Rebolledo Aguirre: No funciona
  • (2019-10-07) Mark Horley: Great - once I clicked refresh it worked fine. Shame Workflowy couldn't do it natively, but this is a good workaround until they do.
  • (2017-03-28) Zero Wu: 赞一个! 安装插件,然后在相应的行添加 #red 等,即可实现当前行的颜色呈现,真棒
  • (2016-07-14) Max Yakin Bozek: Great initiave! Just would love to see it more developed and minima, with no need to write #thecolorname
  • (2016-03-24) Frank D.: You can enhance this great extension with Stylish. You can change up the colors and formatting quite a bit... https://userstyles.org/styles/125832/re-workflowy-re-painter
  • (2016-03-06) Udoka Omen: Nope. Can't figure out how to make it work. :(
  • (2015-12-05) Alex Ella: Does what it says :)
  • (2015-11-19) Laurence Little: Nice job. Just what I needed. Thanks.
  • (2015-09-04) Victoria 'Corrie' Hooker: It's not working for me. Looks like it might but doesn't.
  • (2015-09-01) Cuilian Li: It really works! If only it can also work on IOS APP!
  • (2015-06-06) Oleg Bondarenko: All that beauty does not work in the official WF app cry:cry:cry:
  • (2015-02-26) Kathryn Schekall: It's a good start... but like Alicson K pointed out, it would be great to be able to assign colors to tags. Also wish it could work without tags, and also on the apps - which I know is probably not feasible but it would be awesome!
  • (2014-11-10) Simon Redgrave: Fantastic app - really boosts the clarity of Workflowy. Well done dev!
  • (2014-10-22) Vinayak Shanbhag: Very Usefull to Highlight specific points. Especially when you start using workflowy more and more.
  • (2014-07-19) milton lee: it doesn't work.
  • (2014-04-19) M M: Very Good, if it doesn't work you just go into chrome settings, click extensions and make sure the painter workflow extension is checked.
  • (2013-08-15) Daniel Allen: great! I didn't even know about the tags in workflowy, now I can prioritize my task lists visually!
  • (2013-08-07) GMTWatchMaker GMTPilots com: I installed it but it doesn't work...
  • (2013-07-12) Matei Goga: i just wanna thank you. so much ! i couldn't use workflowy till you coded this
  • (2012-10-18) Alicson: This is wonderful, thanks! It would definitely be helpful/preferable to be able to customize/assign colors to custom tags, but this is a huge first step that Workflowy is very much missing; thank you for this.
  • (2012-09-03) Martin Kiš: UPDATE: I removed three stars from fivestar score, because i havent seen feedback from you in months. This extension for sure need options page to select custom tags to colorize. Without it it´s nothing more but nice prototype. Please increase usability of this extension and add option to colorize tags that we will choose. Good luck with developing. Great. It would be great to have option panel where i could set custom colors for custom tags. (#next tag in red colour etc) Is this possible? It would be great addon for working with workflowy.
  • (2012-07-15) Charly Wargnier: Great!
  • (2012-05-16) Сергей Макаров: Пожелание: сделать разноцветными не буковки, а фон. Можно, как опцию. Различать цвета мелких букв мне, например, очень сложно. А фон - без проблем.

    Would be wonderful to bring this to Firefox too!
  • (2017-10-26, v:2.1) Jim Masloski: No highlighting Just the #red is being done in color
    I'm using Chrome version Version 62.0.3202.62 (Official Build) (64-bit) On a Microsoft Surface - Pindows 10 Pro version 1703 OS build 15063.74 64 bit machine The #red is only thing that changes with a red font starting at the # and ending after the d. No highlighting. Same thing with the yellow If I run on a different system with this version of chrome it works. Not sure what todo.

  • (2017-08-30, v:2.1) Gina Ferreira: not working
    installed but isn't working. I put a note down typed #blue but nothing changed to blue....
  • (2016-11-16, v:2.1) Sofie Bird: Why do you need my browser history?
    I was about to install this extension until I saw the permissions included reading my browser history. I can't see any reason that the extension would need this information, or any indication of a privacy policy anywhere regarding what you do with it.
  • (2016-06-22, v:2.1) Nick Button: Custom colours for tags
    Hi Alexander, Love your painter extension for Workflowy - and use it everyday! Do you plan to do any updates to the extension? I'd love to be able to customise tags by colour (so if I use #urgent it becomes red) for instance.
  • (2015-11-14, v:2.1) EDSFiona: Getting Rid of this
    Umm I don't need this extension anymore so how do I get rid of it?
  • (2015-07-30, v:2.1) Phil DF: painter doesnt show
    I installed this extension in Chrome and ticked it in the Extensions but the icon doesnt appear in the toolbar. Other icons extensions appear, What is blocking it?
  • (2015-04-16, v:2.1) Frank D.: Customize tags/ colors
    What would be awesome is if one could customize the use of colors and connect colors to your existing tags. So instead of #green, one might want to make all "#soon" items default to green throughout one's account... or alternatively create a unique tag which one can connect to a specific color. That would be perfect.
  • (2015-02-22, v:2.1) Jon & Leaetta Wacker: Did not work in chromebook
    Nice idea, but didn't work in my chromebook as installed. Checked extensions in chrome. It was checked (enabled) but nothing happened when I opened WorkFlowy. The icon doesn't appear in the address bar.
  • (2014-08-02, v:2.1) Manny Z: Change in painter?
    Hey there, did you guys change the painter for workflowy? Until yesterday it looked like this: http://content.screencast.com/users/xagaro/folders/Jing/media/bbc03f91-857f-4d1f-8f14-6916bf412eb6/2014-08-01_0502.png Today it looks like this: http://content.screencast.com/users/xagaro/folders/Jing/media/15973e01-4058-460e-8555-fafb7ca1550e/2014-08-01_0503.png I don't like the change - can you make that optional? Thanks!
