Don't get me wrong here. I love that the prefix between real nodes and mirrors is really subtle so it doesn't distract or bother the uniformity of all the prefixes in the tree.
Having said that, sometimes, especially at night when my eyes are already tired and especially if I am reading a reduced view of WorkFlowy (80%) I start to not even recognize which needs are original and which ones are mirrors.
I really wouldn't like WorkFlowy to change this super elegant and subtle pattern for everyone because some of us (the old ones haha) are having difficulty at night differentiating a little circle from a diamond. But I think it could be a nice idea to have a settings option to make this difference a little bit more noticeable and shortsightedness friendly :)
My suggestion here is that the rhomboid shape of the mirrors could be a little bit more diamond-shaped, meaning that the lines curve a little bit to the center, therefore, making them a little bit lighter and easier to recognize without making it too obvious and visually distracting.
● This is like the current regular node
◆ This is like the current regular mirror
✦ This is the icon I'm suggesting, which is quite similar to how it is right now, but just with its edges being curved towards the middle (instead of straight as the regular rhombus).
some other options to consider:
