0.32: Dark theme off?

Post by Troken »

How do I turn off the dark theme? Or with other words, how do I get back the light theme? Without removing the .INI.

I was going to make a topic about this same issue.

Basically, Pierre could add a menu item named 'Default' or 'Default Theme' which would reset the UI back to it's default state:

This requested menu item is important and really needed.

Yes, but users, like myself too, would also like a menu item that resets the theme to default because it's more convenient.

Thank you Pierre :D

One last thing, I cannot seem to access the same 'Style' menu item when under Viewer mode, I can only access it in Browser mode (always noticed this but never complained really). So could you add a copy of the same 'Style' menu for Viewer mode too (view>style)? Please;

Right, so far it works (new 'Default' feature) in v0.33 but the change back to default can only be seen after a restart of XnView MP. This means that before restarting the application there is this alternate 'other' theme that is half-way in looking like the default.

Is it possible, Pierre, to make the change work immediately instead of doing a restart of the application?

Tested on Win XP sp3

And sorry to keep bringing this up, but the various thumb/label colors and view/preview/fullscreen background colors (and any /all other colors that the user can change) should also change with/belong to the theme.

I am not sure about the best GUI for that, but it doesn't make sense to me to change the theme without the other color components changing also. Very disconcerting (not to mention ugly).

Hmm is this a bug or still missing feature? This little issues still occurs in v0.38. Perhaps a GUI refresh/auto-quick restart is needed when going back to 'Default' theme.
