Dark mode: please darken the bright white line after folded code.



  • The dark mode is great! Here is one thing that could make it even better:
    Whenever you folder some code, such as a function or a for-loop, you get this bright white (guessing 255,255,255) line all the way across and a plus sign inside a square on the left side. Could this bright white line be darkened in dark mode? If you have lots of these lines and they are really very bright.

    Thanks.



  • @John-Liudr ,

    What theme do you have active? Because the folding color is determined by your theme (Style Configurator> Global Styles > Fold xxx), and the Dark Mode Default theme has reasonable color choices for folding.

    • FOLD (inactive fold) color is 112,112,112 (grey)
    • FOLD ACTIVE (active fold) color is 127,159,127
    • FOLD MARGIN (checkered background colors) are FG=(24,24,24), BG=(16,16,16)


  • Thanks for your response. I don’t have Fold active but my two other fold settings are both dark enough. But I started experimenting and found this option controls the color of the horizontal line, Default Style:

    It was white. I changed it to a darker yellow. If I see other things turn into this color then I’ll have to find other ways to resolve.
    What I meant are the horizontal lines that replace the folded content. Maybe I was not clear about this.



  • As far as I can tell, this option also affects the search results. It’s no big deal for me.



  • @John-Liudr ,

    Weird. In all my time of using the folding feature of Notepad++, I don’t think it ever hit me that it indicated folded text by a horizontal line in the default-style’s foreground color. I had presumably seen the line, because it’s pretty obvious, but I don’t think I ever thought about it.

    If I see other things turn into this color

    Well, any text that uses the global default color will use that. But a well-defined lexer should have its own DEFAULT entry, and a UDL definitely will – and it doesn’t fold without a lexer or UDL active – so hopefully there isn’t much text in a lexer-or-UDL-active file that doesn’t get styled by the lexer-or-UDL.

    However, given that the folding feature has other entries in the style configurator’s default-style section, you might want to make a feature request (see the FAQ), asking that they add a new Language:Global Styles > Style:Fold Horizontal style whose foreground color sets the color of that line (make sure you include a screenshot of that line) instead of using the default foreground. Because I think it would be a good idea to have that separately-configurable from the default foreground color. But it’s up to you.

    Thanks @PeterJones !

    Here is my new “feature request” issue:
