Visual indicator to differentiate rows

Post by mj6jl5lk6j6 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 1:01 pm

Love this app! Wishing there was a feature that would make it easy for me to differentiate between rows.

For example: if I want to open the folder that has Date Modified "08/22/2020 08:47 AM", I find it hard to accurately line up with my eyes the correct row in the Name column with the desired date in the Date Modified column.

I need to rearrange columns and sometimes column widths:

For me, it would be helpful to have a visual indicator that makes it clear which column entries belong to which row e.g. a grid or alternating row colors or lines (not my preference, but was easiest example to create):
