Audacity Clean Dark Theme

Post by Podel1 » Sat Nov 18, 2017 3:49 pm

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I made a clean dark theme for Audacity if anyone is interested. Hopefully will make editing sound in the dark easier.

That's a lot easier on the eye than the new default light theme (which was frying my retinas).

If I can fathom-out the puzzle of what area on "ImageCache" controls what, I'll make a shades-of-grey version : same as the true classic appearance, not the current "Classic" impostor.

Thanks Podel1.
I've moved this topic to the "Audacity Artwork and Graphics" section.

Perhaps you could upload the theme ZIP file here on the forum so that:
a) It's easier for people to download
b) it remains available even if deviantart.com change the links.

Removing white from the spectrogram is a step too far IMO ...

This isn't true classic, but it's nearer Classic gray theme ... http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic ... 55#p337455

Great theme, One of the Best indeed! But i would like to personalize it a bit according to my taste. Can you provide us an svg file? so that i can make some changes.
