Custom Dark Theme

Post by Debuntu » Sun Dec 08, 2019 4:43 am

In Ubuntu, the ImageCashe.png file is placed in the Theme subfolder to be created in the .audacity-data folder located in the home directory (hidden files should be visible - Ctrl+H). In the Audacity Preferences section of the Interface tab, the "Custom" option must be selected in the Theme box. You can experiment how it looks better by activating and deactivating the "Blend system and Audacity theme" option. Have fun! :)

I can see there's logical consistency to having the loud areas on the spectrogram black,
but it will take some getting used to ...

I would be glad if you can use this theme to adjust the color chart to best suit your needs.

I tried the gold version, but (on Windows 8) I still have some eyesore white-rectangles ...
