Dark Theme bug

Post by Skynet »

Operating System: Windows 7 Pro
Version of EPIM: Essential Pim Pro 9.1

When enabling the dark theme mode, the close, minimize and maximize in the upper right corner also turns black. They will still work, but you have to guess where they are. I have not tested on Windows 10 yet, so I am unsure about the status on that OS.

And, the light color on the top of the mail tree, like the In folder, continues to be white while the sub folders display properly dark.

Skynet, thanks will check if this can be improved on Win7. On Win10 everything works correctly.

norsea, please post a screenshot indicating the problem.

OK

This shows an item in my deleted items folder for one email address.

This is the way it shows up in the folder that a message rule sends it to. ALL items that come to my inbox appear this way.

Items in sub-folders that receive email by way of message rules do not appear white (inverted color).

Very strange behavior...

Please remove the attachment when you have finished; I do not need to have the contents of my EPIM broadcast to the world.

Plain text emails will be with the dark background color on the dark theme, HTML type of email messages will keep their original background color.

As for showing up the email address, please forward me via PM couple of such exported email messages, will check them out. Thanks!

Skynet, please change Windows 7 theme to anything else except for the Basic one in order for the problem to go away.

And, sadly, 9.1.1 has done nothing to solve this problem as well.

This too seems to be something that should be pretty basic from a functionality stand point; meaning this should be high up on the priority list.

I'm beginning to wonder if too many changes are being done such that insufficient testing is being accomplished at the beta level. But this should have been caught during beta testing...

Regards,

Jim

norsea, if you're too using Windows 7 Basic theme, we'd recommend you to switch from it to any other one as it's virtually impossible the fix the issue with Win7 running that specific theme.

Winidows 10

I sent the admin UID a PM from another thread about changing fonts which shows this issue as well as the changing fonts.
