[solved] Portable win32: Unable to change theme in

Hi,

Midas from TPFC here -- please check PortableFreeware.com for more info.

While using the 'portable' QuiEdit under Windows XP Pro SP3, I have been unable to completely change the interface theme colors: to that effect, I tried editing the 'system-default.theme' file inside the 'resources' folder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Whatever follows, let me just thank you for your great work and generosity towards the Internet at large.

    Hi Midas,

    system-default is kind of a dummy theme that adopts the native theme of your operating system (well, it will try anyway). If you select a different theme (via preferences, Ctrl+Shift+P), you should be able to edit the colors etc. Or simply copy the theme file, give it a new name, and create a new theme for yourself.

    Cheers!

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.

    Hi there, Sebastiaan, and thanks for your swift answer.

    Got it! After editing the Wordperfect-52.theme and deleting .quiedit-saved-content, QuiEdit is now working as desired.

    May I suggest a future release to accomodate native Windows portability -- as detailed in TPFC, for example?

    Thanks yet again,

    Midas
