    Default Inkscape - dark theme and new icons!

    Hi All

    I'm only an occasional Inkscape user but thought I'd share this for those of you like me didn't know this was possible.

    For quite sometime I've been seeing screenshots of Inkscape with a dark theme with different icons and assumed it was a just Linux option. No! - it's also a Windows thing too!

    There's a quick YouTube video tutorial by someone called 'Logos By Nick' showing you where to download a zip file and then how to set things up.

    It is really simple to do, just a case of replacing a couple of files in your Inkscape installation. Copies of the files being replaced are also provided so you can revert back if you need to.

    And a real color palette, thoughtfully arranged, at the bottom.

    Cheers Jono, do you think Nick could advise Xara?

    Acorn
    Acorn - My currently active Xara software: XDPX (current, v15, v12 & 11 (64-bit)), unserviced XWD Premium 15 & 12, XPGD10, X3D7; lots of licences back through time (to CC's Artworks). If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.

    Update: A dark theme is now going to incorporated as preference into the future release v1.0. Here's a screen capture of the preference panel taken from a beta version.
