Any plans for dark theme ?

Post by nutron » Sun Jul 07, 2019 3:43 am

Hi.

I am looking into your picoscope software and i noticed there is no way to change the colour theme.
Are there any plans to add dark themes to the picoscope software ? this high brightness white theme is pretty anoying to the eye after a while.

All the colors (traces, backgrounds, grids) can be changed to suit. Its a bit hidden so easy to miss - try Tools / Preferences / Colors. You have to change each setting individually so agree a dark theme would be a good idea.

Can someone post a pssettings file with the colors set for a dark theme ?
This will be a lot faster than changing every color individually.

They are stored in preferences.xml located in the AppData folder

Code: Select all

C:\Users\{user login name}\AppData\Local\Pico Technology\64358d19-ef91-48bb-9ae0-3b4689d44d99
and are not part of the settings or data files.
