Make Notepad++ dark (not editor theme, but editor itself)
@Ekopalypse Damn, well I’m certain I have the dark theme enabled.
Affects google chrome/windows explorer/etc. but not latest Notepad++ release.
yes, sounds like you have it enabled.
Wondering if the windows xp compatibility mode is causing this.
I guess I will install the 3day activated windows 10 in virtual box and see if I can
find out what is causing it.
doesn’t look nice and has some glitches like one would need to create icons and tab
name seems to be black in black
How did you do that? Do I need to re-install Notepad++ or something?
Version 7.7 right?
Barely looks usable but at least it won’t flash white :)
check the link I provided - ease access it the key and with a little patience and testing
you can make it even prettier.
So, testing from my side is done, as this win10 in virtual box is so damn slow …
Oh, you mean high-contrast mode, not dark theme.
Yea not enabling that, huge diff between dark and high-contrast.
Sigh, back to hacking Notepad++, or at least attempting to >.<
All this window management is confusing.

Notepad should follow Windows 10 prescribed colours first, then apply custom settings (Style configurator).
Current version 7.7.1 does not follow high-contrast settings for background foreground, but does follow high-contrast settings for frame, tab colours, menu …

@Kevin-Mc Notepad ++ does not owe anything to anyone!
Any changes to Notepad++ scene? Would be nice to have this implemented. It’s very annoying dealing with a mostly dark editor only to have the menu’s and such be blindingly white.
Already have enough issues with everything flashing white on Windows when un-minimizing >.>

Do we have a schedule on making the UI dark?
Chrome already has it, even Windows native explorer has it too (which is surprising). Not a priority but it would be nice to know that if it is in the plan of future implementation.

Every other text editor has dark mode for the whole program. I don’t think this is too hard to implement, but again I don’t have experience in C++

This chameleon only lacks a dark theme disguise
