Setting the interface theme

The selected theme sets the style and colors used by the Genero Studio interface. You can use one of the default themes or create a theme of your own.

Genero Studio comes with two default themes: a default theme and a dark theme.

Select Tools > Preferences (or, if you are on a Mac, Genero Studio > Preferences), then User Interface.

The Current combobox allows you to select from the available themes.

The Style combobox allows you to choose between widget styles for custom themes you develop. You cannot change the style for the provided out-of-the-box themes. See Qt Widget Gallery for more information about the widget styles.

Creating a custom theme

To create a new theme:
  1. In the Current combobox, select an existing theme. This theme will serve as your starting point.
  2. Click Duplicate....
  3. In the Profile name field, enter the name for your new theme.
  4. Click OK.

The new theme is created. You can now edit the theme.

Modify a custom theme

Each role in a theme is assigned two colors.
  • Color is the color used when the role / object is enabled.
  • Disabled is the color used when the role / object is disabled.
You can modify the colors used for the various roles of any custom theme. To modify the colors of a role:
  1. In the Current combobox, select the theme.
  2. Locate the Role in the Role list.
  3. Click on the color square in the Role's row to launch the color picker.
  4. Select the desired color.
  5. Repeat as needed.
  6. When you have finished, click Apply to save your changes.
