[SOLVED] How to set global font color

Post by oscillator »

Hi,

I am using the Dark theme and want to set the global font color (which currently is light grey).

I can't find it in the theme files, nor in the Appearance > Colors > Items list.

Is it possible to change it?

Thanks!

Open the 'Dark Theme.qss' or 'Ardour.qss' and change the values in the 'color' section of the 'QWidget' section at the top of the page:
Here you can see I made 'red' 255, which makes the text reddish. Test OK.

Code: Select all

QWidget {
      background-color: rgb(30,30,30);
      color: rgb(255,120,120);
}
Bonus:
Today in git master, kybos added the ability to load user-made stylesheets found in ~./config/MusE/MusE/themes,
via the buttons in Appearance Settings. So you can make a working copy of the *.qss files and put them there if you like.
