Scrivener 3 Themes (Windows)

I’m glad you’re enjoying it😊 I tried making the text on the gold buttons navy blue but then the text of the menu up top also turns navy. As for the keyboard panel, it uses the same color preset as the background of the binder. Those two things are bugging me, too, but I’m not sure where in the code I’d need to make adjustments to get the result I want. If someone knows how to do that, please let me know!

In page view, I am trying to replicate the Dark Mode mac theme but on Windows 10. Particularly, I am trying to set the background to become dark, however when I do so, it changes both the background and the editor color itself - which I would prefer the classic black text on a white page.

Any suggestions?

The macOS version of Scrivener offers a “Keep Main Editors Light” option in the “Appearance” menu (that’s where you also can select Dark, Light or System default mode). I’m not sure about Windows, though.

How do you get those solid arrow-heads in the binder? I can hardly see the default ones, but yours are beautiful and clear at the same time.

Buy a Mac.

A post was split to a new topic: Increase the visibility of arrowheads in binder and outliner

Here is Pao’s version of the default Theme, called White. The default Theme can’t be saved to file, so this is a good alternatieve to start building Themes based on the Default.

Dracula theme for Scrivener

(Posted on behalf of Ayush Pokharel and Zeno Rocha.)

Dracula is a popular theme available for nearly everything that supports themes, and now Scrivener too.

@AmberV , thank you very kindly :relaxed:

This is the first theme in memory that gives Dark Mode…and…lets you see the folder/container dropdown symbol so you know what those are.

Not only that, but it gives a soft non-blueish color to text.

All the things the slightly retinally challenged person could ask for :slight_smile:

I had a squint, at least, using Norton and then a code editor for any funny things; didn’t notice any. And there are a lot of things one could tune, most done with internal settings in Scrivener, no doubt.

Very happy to have this. It won’t substitute for the iPad and Scrivener for much original writing, but now I won’t glance away from using Scrivener on the laptop for the deeper things it can do there.

Best, (and thanks of course to the theme originator, Ash (ayushpokh on the Github project you tagged)

Thank you for posting it here! Folks can reach out to me with any bugs they might find in the theme (or suggestions).

Great Theme in a new tint!
Suggestions for improvement might be to lower the contrast of the lines on the Index Cards in the Corkboard View and make the contrast stronger between a selected row in the Outliner View and the subtle text color of the synopsis. I’m missing the menu bar highlights, set in the QSS stylesheet, but it might be your choice to leave those out. Oh, and I’d like to see better which button in button group for the Group Views is selected. Good job!

I’d be interested to know how you hacked the triangles in front of the folders in the Binder instead of the > characters…

Thank you kindly for the Vampire theme. Amazing work!

I can’t take credit, I just posted it at the creator’s request! :slight_smile:

如何把主题加载进软件里?我更改了扩展名也没用

Window > Themes > Load Theme from file

Or

Window > Themes > Import Theme

压缩文件格式是加载不了的,扩展名更改成scrtheme格式,主题也加载不进来

The Zip-file must contain 4 files: *. pal, *. qss, *. prefs and *.xml.

The .XML manifest must contain the name of the Theme and the exact names of the other files.

Each file must be formatted correctly following the specifications of their format.

If it still doesn’t work, send me the Theme in a message through this forum.

这几个 格式都有,我在论坛下载的那个白色主题都无法加载进软件里去
