When I saw this had been updated to a full point version I freaked out. This has been such a useful tool for me to show web designers I work with how important it is to not rely solely on color to differentiate action items. So I was very excited to see it is still being maintained. In the current version I am unable to resize from the corners of the window. Try to drag from the corner and you select the item behind the window. Resizing from left, right and bottom size work but it means more effort to get the window to the size you want. It would be great to see a full-screen option that shows the entire screen in the selected filter.

I showed my boss the new FileMaker app I had created for the lab, and he said: "Could you add this info?" which was right there in front of him - that's when I realized he is red/green blind and simply couldn't see the writing. I found Sim Daltonism and since then haven't created an app, a web page, or a presentation without first checking it with Sim Daltonism. Essential app in my opinion.

Really nice application. I’ve used in the past to test how website designs work for color-blind people. It always worked great and I really appreciate the update after nearly four years, so I could continue to use SimDaltonsim in the future.

Brilliant. Very useful for web designers who are into standards compliancy and accessibility (ie. who are into designing properly). Well done.
