It takes quite some time to find one particular item in the list and change its color, especially if you don't know the name of the item you wish to change. Perhaps in a future release you could introduce an option to right-click a window or tab, and select edit-color from a drop-down list.
Didn't really use this, but after trying it, found that it broke the WF designer for me just like the last commenter. However, unlike the last commenter, you can fix this without a complete reinstall. See the Q and A tab for the two registry entries to fix this. Otherwise, it does what it says on the box. The WF issue is a deal-breaker for me or it'd get more stars.
Bummer for Windows WorkFlow developers! On the whole, this extension is great. However, after installing it, the connection lines in Windows WorkFlow designers disappear until you select one, and there is apparently NO WAY to get them back again! I've tried changing the color of every single element individually from the theme editor, to no avail. Also, un-installing does not cause the lines to show up again either. So far, only getting a brand new machine gets the lines back in the designer. Don't install this if you are working a lot with Windows WorkFlow! You will absolutely regret it!
I love what this does. I think there maybe a bug. When I lock my computer with VS2010 running VS crashes when I unlock the PC. The crashing stopped when I disabled the color theme editor. Hmmm, anyone else having a similar problem?
I have a feature request... could we associate a theme with a solution? This would really help when working across multiple solutions, especially when having multiple instances of Studio open at the same time.
This is an excellent tool! The one thing it's lacking (in my opinion) is the ability to set fonts, styles, and typefaces. For example, I like to have my keywords and data types in bold, but there's no way that I've seen in this tool that can do that. Is there a way to do that, or is there another tool, or could it be added in the future?
I like very much your extension! I have a application based on VS2013 isolated shell. I could change the manifest so it can be installed. I can modify existing themes but I can't create a new one. The theme editor tries to write the new theme to the extension folder using "Microsoft.VisualStudio.Pro" as the installation target and the extension manager raises an UnsupportedProductException.
Would you kindly support the creation of custom themes in isolated shells?
I can't seem to figure out what color is for the background of the Solution Explorer window, the designer window background, and the output window background/text. Anyone have any ideas if these are customizable? Thanks!
this question was asked befor, but noone gave an answer. if you select "show all" at the theme editor, you get more than 100 name/color... but which one is controlling what? is there a list for what each key stands for? can perhaps someone provide me with screenshots and the keynames there?
That's a very good idea. Right now the only method to properly customize the theme is through trial and error, which is very frustrating. It would be a good idea if it were a screenshot available containing the description for each element, or even better, when you hover an element in the list it could be surrounded by a visible frame in the UI.
Firstly, thanks for the tool. Now using your tool I applied a Elite dark them from http://www.sharepoint.bg/radi/post/Pimp-Your-IDE-Visual-Studio-2010-Themes-and-Skins.aspx But now when I change the Output Window plain text foreground to Yellow and background to a shade of Dark Grey (from Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors)and the background renders fine but the text goes black and is sort of highlighted in light grey background. I wonder if you could tell me what setting in your tool I could use to set the text color and background for Output Window? Thanks.
