WeBuilder 2018 - Flat Dark Theme has some minor issues

Postby Multicoder » Tue Apr 10, 2018 10:17 am

Hey there,

I really like the new Flat Dark Theme of WeBuilder 2018 (v. 15.0.0.199) but it is missing some padding around the edges of the screen when the window is maximized.
This seems to be the case only with the Dark Flat Theme. The others have a few more pixels padding and are okay.
Here are two Screenshots of the the Flat Dark Theme and and the Flat Blue Theme. The missing padding can good be seen at the left hand side near the folder icons of the file explorer, the message tab ("Meldungen") at the bottom left and the lens icon in the search bar of the code-explorer on the right hand side.

Also, when I change from or to the Flat Dark Theme it takes up to a whole minute when I have some large files (about 20k lines) open and changing TO the Flat Dark Theme changes my color scheme of the editor (changing the color scheme also takes up to a whole minute with the same files opened).

These are really just minor issues but I thought I report them anyway :)
I really like this new Version of WeBuilder :) Keep up the great work :D

I don't think we can do anything about the speed (except maybe force-close the documents, but that causes other issues). I'll write down the padding issue and if it can be fixed then we'll fix it. Thanks for reporting all this!

Oh, I just found another issue (at least for me it is not so minor) when using the Flat Dark Theme: when I close WeBuilder and open it up again, the color scheme of the editor is also reset.
It could get really annoying when I have to set my color scheme every time I start WeBuilder.

That one I can't reproduce. Could you make a video so that I can try to do step-by-step the same as you to reproduce the issue?

Sure.
For the demonstration I did choose the Atelier Dune color scheme instead of my own.

It's basically just this: open a color scheme, click OK and then restart the editor.

//EDIT: I skipped the color scheme choosing in the first video, so here is a complete one with another color scheme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyYD3ymjF_8

I still can't reproduce this, I even tried setting language to German. Is it possible for you to uninstall and delete all the settings when uninstall asks you about it, then reinstall and see if the problem persists? That is provided that it is practical for you to lose all the FTP connections, projects etc.

If not, check what you have in registry in this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Karlis Blumentals\WeBuilder\7.0\ParsersDark and check if the values change after you change the color scheme and close the editor. Then please contact support here https://www.webuilderapp.com/support-contact.php and let's try to work out why that happens on your computer.

It looks like there is a color scheme attached to the Flat Dark Theme and also the IDE reloads completely when I change from or to the Flat Dark Theme.

Oh, I completely forgot to mention, that I run WeBuilder with the portable configuration (for USB-Drives), so this registry key doesn't exist. Sorry about that :(

IDE reloading is by design, that's just how the theming works.

Maybe portable configuration indeed is what causes the issue, thanks, I'll test it later with that. I noticed from your video that the general elements (gutter color, line highlight color) are saved fine, but the parser colors are not.

I just checked on my other machine (Surface Pro 4) and it (the portable configuration) really seems to be the cause of the issue. :)

You can download update to build 200 where issue with saving colors for portable configuration is fixed.
