EPIM - Dark Theme

Post by Scotty »

EPIM Pro v6.55
Win7

Hello
Would it be possible to have a dark theme in EPIM. More & more developers are providing options for coloured themes. Even EPIM Android has a dark theme.
Whilst you could argue that the dark theme in EPIM Android is to conserve battery, it also makes it very easy on the eye.

I love that EPIM is so configurable. But it's stark white background is definitely one I would change, if I could.

+1, yes please - I prefer dark theme for all the GUI not only the background (suggestion from Scotty look very unprofessionally and obsolete). Get inspired by Add-Ons/Appearance for Firefox/Pale Moon (eg. Dark Moon from https://addons.palemoon.org/themes/complete/) /Thunderbird

A dark theme would be cool!
This is why people like Hydromax and what it does.

I love dark themes as well, it'd be nice to have one at least. And other colors too!

I support the suggestion of darker skins/themes. Working with a program that has only white backgrounds is really a pain.

Absolutely right.

+1. I have three monitors filled with open program windows. I frequently jump between the EPIM window and other windows, but it takes a bit to figure out where the EPIM window is in the mess. A dark theme EPIM would instantly stand out and make it easy to locate, even if it is covered up a bit by another window.
