Common File Dialogs are part of Windows not Opus, so it’s not something we are doing. They override a lot of standard colos and themes when in Dark Mode, as part of Microsoft’s half-baked efforts to make them (and only them) dark, which then complicates any effort to make a cohesive, process-wide dark mode. (Something we’ve run into ourselves while doing the same for a future update.)
Yeah I understand this. I've dealt with these problems for my own stuff as well. I'm just wondering if there's a way I can fully disable my Mica efforts on Dialogs since we won't be able to make it fully Mica, but probably not.
I have 57.3 TB of space, with another 2x 8TB HDDs unplugged (no room in case/desk for external case).
I archive a lot of rare content, back up rare or promotional DVDs (or DVDs that are about to rot) and such and so. It takes a LOT of space. But there's also PLEX and Emby for my DVDs to watch on my PC easier.
You probably just beed to change a couple of background colors to black in Preferences to make it work for everyone, if it’s currently relying on a tool that changes the background via some other method.
There’s no way to change the recycle bin currently.
(Actually, you can change the background, but not the text, which would make the text unreadable on a dark background.)
This is because it’s a special folder rendered by the Windows shell rather than Opus itself, and the shell doesn’t provide a (documented) way to change the text color it uses.
We have worked out a way to do it which will be part of a built-in dark mode in the future, where the whole UI can be dark (including all the system-rendered things, not just the normal file displays and other elements we render ourselves which can already be dark).
I've just been testing with Mica For Everyone and our coming dark mode to see if there are any issues.
It works OK-ish, but there are some major issues. It seems to be interpreting the alpha channel in places where there isn't one, which is completely bogus and results in weird artifacts all over the place.
It only works with things that have a dark background. If you switch back to light colors, the UI is unusable. Worse, there are situations where UI is displayed before your dark configuration is loaded. For example, the config-upgrade UI or licence manager can appear very early during startup, and will be in light mode if that happens. Mica For Everyone makes those UIs unusable.
We recommend you do not apply it to Directory Opus at all.
