good old ~~black~~ DARK theme

Post by binoyte » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:13 pm

Please revert or correct this new black theme (qcad pro 3.22.0).

this theme is too constrasted an some elements are not visible or readable.

For instance :

In the yellow frame, the text is not colorblind proof. To me it is difficult to read. In the red frame, contrast hurts.

Exemple of hidden text that is disturbing

Image

Note: despite this, i'm very satisfied by qcad, and i'm loving using it. It's getting better and better.

by the way, don't make confusion between black and dark theme. Most of CAD / graphic softwares have a **dark** theme that is not black. Have a look at GIMP, Aftershtopro, Darktable, Lightroom, Photoshop, Solidworks etc…

Dark theme is too dark almost black.

If you like black theme, please offer also a dark theme.

Note that you can add your own theme(s). Have a look at themes/Dark/... Simply add themes/MyTheme where MyTheme is your theme name and create your own stylesheets / images. There are many examples online for Qt themes.

The dark theme is meant as an intermediate solution, primarily for macOS users using the dark OS mode. Hopefully Qt will support the dark theme soon (indeed it already does in Qt 5.12 but 5.12 still has other, more serious issues).
