No erasure upon reading: The development of a diaryl benzobis(thiadiazole) derivative with thermally stable isomers that can be isolated owing to intramolecular steric hindrance is summarized in this Highlight. Practically useful photochromic switches that do not suffer from erasure upon reading have thus been fabricated.
