Suggestion to improve the dark theme.

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

Suggestion to improve the dark theme.

Post by *MARK2580 » 2019-10-31, 15:49 UTC

Now downloaded beta 3. Already better, tabs are now visible. But I am very saddened by this one-color element and too bright white edges, I think it's worth making them much darker.
In the original white theme, this element has a bluish-blue hue, and in the dark theme everything is the same color, which is confusing.

This is the highlight color. You can change it yourself in menu Configuration - Options - Color - Others - Dark mode - Highlight.
You can separately change the color of the active file panel title in the same combobox.

No. I meant that in the original there are two separate colors. In the dark theme, both elements have the same color, which is not true. Check in the mode when at least one tab is open.

If in the settings you can now choose colors for the dark mode, then you should make a color choice for all these bright white frames, they directly “glow” against a dark background. Those. Two colors of shadow elements.

Ah, I missed these - they only appear without tabs. I will change them.
