TC 9.5b1 - Thick category outlines in dialogs in Dark Mode - Win 7

The behaviour described in the bug report is either by design, or would be far too complex/time-consuming to be changed

TC 9.5b1 - Thick category outlines in dialogs in Dark Mode - Win 7

Post by *petermad » 2019-10-20, 10:32 UTC

In Dark Mode under Windows 7 (Aero theme) the lines around categories in the dialogs are thicker compared to Windows 10 - see: https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/darkconfigwin10-7.png and https://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/darkmodemultiwin7.png

Would it be possible to make these lines thinner under Windows 7?

I don't see these thick lines under Window 8.1, so it is probably due to the 3D-shadow these lines have under Windows 7

Yes, you are right. Windows Vista/7 style has thickest window widgets like borders/frames/outlines, thicker than Windows XP.

Unfortunately these lines are currently drawn by Windows. I couldn't find a way to draw them myself.
