Just to chime in here, yes I’ve been having the same feelings about the colour schemes, I mean who set these up? A colourblind person?
Why are devs asking users to make changes to CSS files in order to get the basic colour scheme setup for their use? Madness!
At the minimum, the editor should come with 2 basic colour schemes - light and dark. Both should have good contrast between the background and text. This does not seem to be the case. I am using a light colour scheme for my widgets and a dark one for the editor. I am continually having to squint to be able to read the filenames in the sidebar, because the contrast between background and foreground is so low.
Im able to set this somewhere in config I hear you say? I’ve been using komodo for the last 4 years or so, in all that time I still havent found an option which will let me simply change the text colour in the sidebar widget so its a bit darker. I’ve managed to find places where you can set colours for the close button. The f*****g close button! I just want the basics - changing the colours of the editor and the widgets around it, not the level of granularity which makes you get lost amongst all the options as soon as you open the “colour scheme editor”.
Why are the basics not setup to enable users to pick from at least dark and light colour scheme, which will have a default contrast set properly for text/background? I feel a young dev has taken up this part of the komodo development and made a big mess out of it. Too complex! Simplify!
Sorry its a rant, but this has been bugging me for so long, I know someone will come along and go “yeah open the customizer, and clik here and there and you will be able to set it”. Well this shouldnt be the case, I should be able to quickly and easily find this and modify myself.
