Sorry you're seeing this issue. I tried a few ways to replicate it but, so far, haven't been able to. If possible, could you raise the issue on our support forums, so that we can better try to resolve the problem? For theme problems, please use: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/theme-problems/
Whether you post on the forums or not, please let us know the OS you're using and which DevStyle color theme you've selected, as well as the actions you're taking on the new project wizard to make sure we're looking at the same window. Additionally, if you've made any personalizations to the desktop in your OS, please mention that.
Thanks for your kind comments on the plugin. We'd sure like to improve it by resolving this issue and hope you can help us do so.

Hi, good plugin overall. I have one issue, when using the Darkest Dark theme, when adding new Java classes, in the new Java file window, the cursor for typing class name is black and it is on black background, which is hard to see. Can we improve this?
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-07-25 04:29
Jingfeng Zhao, thanks for your comments on the plugin. I'm assuming that you're using a Mac, as I could only reproduce the issue on that OS. If you're using some other platform, please raise an issue on our support forums at https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/theme-problems/
If you're on a Mac, the problem is seen in other wizards also but I note it doesn't stop use of those wizards. I've raised the problem with development and we will certainly seek to improve the experience here though there does seem to be a problem with dark themes generally (the standard eclipse Dark theme also exhibits the problem) so there might be an issue with the OS. However, we'll do our best to make this a better experience.
Thanks again for reporting the problem.

It reverted my eclipse from photon to oxygen and locks up if i use my existing workplace, using a new workplace makes half of eclipse do nothing when i click on something, have to reinstall eclipse just to remove this
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-07-25 02:26
We're keen to figure out what happened in your situation, both to help you and in case others come across it. We have thousands of Oxygen and Photon users of the plugin and, as Brian pointed out, we've tested extensively with both eclipse releases, including with upgraded installs from Oxygen to Photon but have not seen the issue you're reporting. If you'd like to help resolve it, please raise the issue on our support forums where we can investigate it more thorougly as this is not the best forum for the exchanges that might be needed. We look forward to helping you at https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Tue, 2018-07-17 08:11
Thomas, I'm sorry you had a bad experience with DevStyle. DevStyle is compatible with Photon, and there's no way it can revert your installation back to Oxygen, unless a "downgrade path" was chosen during installation itself, perhaps due to other plugins you may have had installed. Our team has specifically tested multiple Photon installations, even those which had been upgraded from Oxygen, and it works as expected. Unfortunately, the downgrade could have resulted in a corrupted installation, and this is likely the cause of the lockups you experienced.
If you try DevStyle again, please note any issues / alt installation paths that are suggested during installation. We'll be happy to help with any installation issues you may have - you can report them here, or better still, use our support forum: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/

Hello, there is one more thing I have found so far after I issued the scrollbar problem.
If I try to scroll down until the end of the file on source code window in general, I can only see horizontally half of the last line number. However, if I execute scrolling on the 'line number panel' directly, it can be fully shown.
Thanks for your cooperation!
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-06-13 00:55
A workaround for this issue is to maximize the editor (double click on the tab for this editor). I hope that helps until we fix this.
Submitted by Yoruichi Shihouin on Wed, 2018-06-13 20:57
Thank you Tony for you workarounds!
I tried maximizing the tabs and also picking out one of them to maximize it individually outside the editor.
However, both did not work well, though I can endure this somehow :)
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Tue, 2018-06-12 07:34
Yoruichi, I couldn't quite replicate the problem as you described but I do see issues with the last line in some editors with certain themes, and I've rased the issue with the development team, at a hight priority. Thanks for reporting this and sorry you're seeing the issue.
Submitted by Yoruichi Shihouin on Tue, 2018-06-12 20:30
Thank you for your prompt reply, Tony! In my case, I used Darkest Dark theme and some of others.
I am looking forward to the improvements!

Thanks for the comment, Gareth, and thanks for taking the time to post it! It's much appreciated.

Thanks for your effort for making this tool.
I just installed it few days ago and was wandering what's inside.
Currently, I'm using Windows 10 64-bit and Eclipse Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a).
Whenever I feel that the codes are horizontally too long, I tend to wrap them using Alt + Shift + Y hotkey.
Then, intuitively, a vertical scrollbar is expected to appear if the load of codes exceeds the screen, however, it did not appear.
At first, I thought, it is Eclipse which might have the problem, but after turning off the tool by changing the option in preference menu, I could see that scrollbar appeared well from inactive gray mode to active mode, for instance.
It would be appreciated if this problem is solved.
I send my gratitude in advance!

Yoruichi, thanks for using DevStyle and sorry you're seeing this problem, which I've been able to reproduce. I've raised a bug report for the issue and it will be addressed in a later release.

In Window --> Preferences --> DevStyle --> Color Themes, I have the Workbench theme set to "Dark Custom".
Normally, HSL(0,0,0) should be pitch black. However, this results in a light brownish grey workbench collor. Setting HSL to (0,0,100) creates the darkest workbench theme. However, it is still not black. It is a (quite ugly) dark brownish grey.
It would be nice to be able to set the HSL values of the Custom Dark workbench theme to a pitch black colour.
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Fri, 2018-06-01 02:11
mjakobi866, thanks for using DevStyle. Yes, a pure black backround is not currently possible. With some OS themes, it may not be possible to see some UI controls (e.g. drop down box arrows) if using pure black. However, we're looking at how best to address this issue. Thanks for reporting it.

1- It is mentioned that theme colors are customizable yet I don't see anywhere which that customization could be acheived.
2- In dissassembly view, background colors of recent asm executions make the actualy op code unreadable.
3- How to change the yellow color of comments in darkest dark color theme?
4- The "switch to C/C++ editor" icon (upper right) is labeled to just C++

Sorry to say that, but I'm really disappointed about the popup advertising another product. It breaks the flow of mind and It's really annoying, if not abusive. I'm going to uninstall the plugin if this won't be corrected.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Tue, 2018-04-24 07:10
Francesco, as I stated earlier in the comments, this is the first popup in 14 months of DevStyle, sent to our users because we strongly believe CodeMix will improve their Eclipse dev experience.
Now typically, a user would see the notification just once, but I realize (from our Twitter conversation) that you are seeing it far more frequently, and I agree this can be frustrating. We will be releasing an update in the next couple of days that will correct this behavior. Thank you for letting us know, and we appreciate your patience.
Submitted by Francesco Muccilli on Tue, 2018-04-24 09:51
Thank you for your answer. I hope that the correction will aim to get rid of popups altogether. I don't think than an IDE could be considered a good place for this kind of notifications. It's disturbing, as we already struggle to avoid popups on web pages.

Rohith, do you have macOS's "Show scroll bars" setting set to "Always"? You can change it to "When scrolling" to resolve this issue. Do let us know if that does not fix it.

and I like the color of my Eclipse layout, much easier on the eyes. But after getting a popup pushing other products, I uninstalled. Sorry, I have no tolerance for this type of advertising. This should be listed in the product description and feels somewhat deceptive.

John, this is the first popup in 14 months of DevStyle's existence, put out there as we believe our users would benefit from our new CodeMix plugin.
We respect our users very much, and are happy to provide this very popular plugin entirely free. We'll continue to be very sensitive about not popping up frequently; sorry it rubbed you the wrong way, and hopefully we’ll see you back again!

I imported the Solarized light color, it works for the syntax. But if I want to use its background color, I need to check background color in Devstyle setting. This will change the background color at the beginning. But it will change back to default(white/black) color if I change to a different program's window. I am using Eclipse Oxygen at mac High Sierra. Thanks!
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Tue, 2018-04-03 20:39
Sorry that you're seeing a problem, Jun Zhao. I tried to replicate the problem, from your description and couldn't. Could you please raise the issue on our support forums? The support forum is here: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/theme-problems/
We'd need to know exactly what settings were used on the DevStyle preferences pages and how you imported the Solarized theme, as well as specific release information for eclipse Oxygen and DevStyle. Some screenshots of the problem would be a big help, too.
Thanks for using DevStyle.

Thanks for making such an awesome theme experience free to the community. I hate the default dark theme Eclipse provides since not everything is properly dark and the icons look awful.
However, DevStyle cleanly replaces all icons and impart an excellent themed experience. I use it for C/C++ development. One suggestion I have is you could make the syntax coloring better. This is an area where the eclipse default dark theme does a good job. e.g. I manually set the color of function to be green for easy identification and skimming of the code. You can take cues from editors like Sublime text as well.

I really like this, however I have one problem with it: In my package explorer, some entries do not get styled. The font is black and the background white instead of the other way around, which makes working with the package explorer unpleasant.
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-02-28 23:57
Thanks for using Darkest Dark, Daniel. I'm glad you like it. Regarding your problem with Package Explorer, could you provide more information, as I don't see the same issue at my end? What is the OS, the version of eclipse and a screenshot would help. Is it a certain type of entry that is causing the problem (a certain project type or file type, for example)? For problem investigation, our support forums are probably a better platform for investigating. If you could use the forums, rather than this MarketPlace listing page, then that would be awesome, but we can help here too (though sometimes with more of a delay).

Using Windows, When a list is opened, (i.e. with CTRL+SHIFT+T) the first element in the list is always highlighted with a lightgray color that makes it impossible to read the underlaying white text. Please fix, I love everything else about this theme!!
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-02-28 03:05
Glad you like the theme, DB! Sorry about the bad color scheme though I don't see that when I tried with the Darkest Dark theme on Windows 10, here. In my case, the highlight is a medium gray, not a light gray. Can you please report this on our forum with a screenshot of the problem and a note to say which version of DevStyle you have installed (you can get this from Help>Installation Details, Installed Software tab) and what your theme settings are in the DevStyle>Color Themes preferences page? Apologies for the inconvenience.
Submitted by 周 燚 on Sat, 2018-02-17 08:17
I don't know why Devstyle always erases the formatting of SYNTAX COLORING settings.
Once you close your Eclipse, all the format setting in syntax coloring will be reset to a fixed normal style, like italic of static items, of bold for keywords.
No matter how I saved the configuration it didn't change. Even importing a preferences file(.epf) can't overwrite the format
It seems like happened only in Dark series theme, Light series theme works fine.(But every one dose need the Darkest Dark)
Same problem happended in Eclipse Photon too.
OS: Windows 10.1709(16299.214)
Eclipse Version: Oxygen.2 Release (4.7.2)

I am having issues with the plugin I can't seem to fix.
Firstly, when Eclipse opens, this prompt pops up (every time):
"Given how DevStyle intercepts certain components of this IDE, it is recommended to restart now. Continue with restart?"
When trying to update, it says update pending and nothing happens.
When trying to modify, it says "The currently displayed page contains invalid values."
Anyone have any idea what's going on? I tried to delete the metadata, but that changed nothing. Thanks!
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-03-14 05:24
For all the users seeing this problem, note that the fix is in the new update which is available now. Please check for updates to get the latest release of DevStyle. New installs of DevStyle will not see this issue. Sorry to all who've seen the issue for the inconvenience and thanks for installing the plug-in.

Charles, sorry you're also hitting this problem. As I've mentioned here, the fix for this will be in the next release which is due quite soon (sorry, no definite schedule). In the meantime, the only workaround, which appears to work for some people, is to reinstall eclipse and the DevStyle plug-in.
Again, really sorry that you're seeing this but, hopefully, we'll sort it out soon.

Same issue, glad a fix is on the way.
What concerns me is that this was fine then all of a sudden broken, I had done no updates but I have noticed some updates happening in Eclipse in background but I always have auto update turned off. Is DevStyle auto updating in background without my say so?
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Tue, 2018-08-14 05:31
Sorry about this, Simon. It was actually a separate issue from the one reported earlier (though with the same symptom) but this has now been fixed in the latest update.
