Hi EPIM-Team,
white text on black backround is much better to read
Technically speaking, it is not. :)
One of the best, and probably most commonly used sets is a dark theme in the newest Gimp. Background has to be dark grey rather, and letters not white but kind of ivory . Or take Notepad++ with the new dark theme.
For obvious reasons.

Most probably, the best setting is bckgr RGB: 57, 57, 57 (0-255)
letters RGB: 227, 227, 227.
EPIM Pro Business Network always newest
Win 8.1 Pro 64x, C2D 2x3GHz, 8 GB RAM or Win 10 Pro, C2D 2x2,66 GHz, 8 GB RAM.

@EPIM-Team:
Do you have RC's and betas as f.e. Firefox so the user can test, give feedback and help so make the next version(s) better?
Give some Links to it please.
And tell me how the Dark Theme will be looking.
Will it be customizable as f.e. putting it's own favourite RGB settings.

@Trinitylab:
@EPIM-Team:
Would be nice if one could set it up as you can use colors in MS Paint by choosing a color or putting the RGB numbers. And make a button to reset to the standard Dark Theme settings.

@Trinitylab:
Everyone has other feeling about the colors or should I say preferences.

+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.
I agree, EPIM should stand out from the other program windows as PIM software is one of the most important tools one is using on a computer.
It's also better for the eyes and comfort!
I hope they do it soon and tell me where I can find the betas and RC's so one can help and report the problems or bugs.

There is no Beta with dark mode, it's in development. But you can try latest release candidate nevertheless: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=34032

I have sent Max and email and a private message and asked about becoming a beta tester. Have not gotten response. I did not realize it was a request here on the forum. I would love to test beta as well.
