Count me as one who hated the default "dark" theme of VS 2010. Love the traditional "Windows Classic" theme. If there's one group of consumers to whom continual reskinning doesn't appeal, it would have to be programmers.
Unfortunately them editor does not allow to edit color of active vs solution item (selected but not in focus - now it has light-light gray color) - this is the main disadvantage for me in line of VS products. I've worked on VS for 6 years and quick search of selected item in vs solution explorer is great problem for people like me with -5 myopia. Could you please help us and include such support in this great tool or may be another solution already exists?
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.
