When trying to use the right-click context menu on change sets to apply a work item, the prompt never shows. Same for setting current work item. Obstructing ability to use theme :(
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-05-24 12:42
Joel, thank you for the report - we'll try to take a look. Could you let us know which version of the RTC plugin you're using, the version of Eclipse, and your OS? Thanks!
Submitted by Joel Mclean on Thu, 2019-05-30 05:59
Version: Photon Release (4.8.0)
Build id: 20180619-1200
(Description in Eclipse IDE Features window for RTC plugin says 6.0.5 but the Version column in the list shows the above version number)

Love DevStyle but it's very impractical to use with source control as for some reason when using context menu on a change set to assign a work item, the dialog to pick a work item does not show up and so I then have to unapply the devstyle theme back to an eclipse default theme, assign the work item, and then reapply the theme, which is very annoying. Any idea why this is? I've actually stopped using DevStyle now because of the inconvenience but I would love to be able to use it again without this issue :(

I'm developing eclipse plugins, so using source/target eclipse setup (both 4.11). I've installed the darkest-dark-theme-plugin in my source eclipse and it's working without problems. When I want to test me plugins and start the target platform and activate the theme in the target eclipse it's totally broken. Only Package-Explorer is getting a dark background. No icons, toolbars, editors, views are changed. ;-(

Unfortunately I had to uninstall DevStyle after updating Eclipse to Version 2019-03 (4.11.0). Too many visual problems. E.g. the in-window search window has dark font on dark background, theenterred text is only visible when selected and so on. This is a pity, since I love the bread-crub and icons. Also tried also to reinstall DevStyle, but no avail.
Hope an update is coming soon :-)

Stefan, just wanted you to know that we've released an update a few hours ago with a fix for the light themes, so you can take the update and go back to your preferred theme. Thank you for the report!
Submitted by Stefan Pachner on Wed, 2019-03-27 16:23
thanks for quick answer. I tried once again I had again problems (now I have MacOS is in dark mode) with DevStyle in LightGray. Some Comboboxes do not show the text to choose from and the DevStyle in-window search text can only be seen when selected. I can provide screenshots but how. Cannot attach files in marketplace.
I will keep MacOS in dark mode and use DevStyle DarkGray (darkest) which is working fine.
Submitted by Wojciech Galanciak on Mon, 2019-04-01 07:05
We have just published an update for DevStyle to fix all issues which you had observed in Light Gray theme. Thanks again for reporting the issue and please let us know if now it works as expected.

We incorrectly assumed that your original post was talking about DevStyle's dark themes. Were you referring to the light themes? We are aware of issues with the light themes, and will be releasing a fix next week. Sorry for the disruption!

Javadoc for methods doensnt working.
Error logs also dissapeared while hover, and i have only the red indicator at left.

I checked this without devStyle enabled,everything fine.
I try also a fresh install of Eclipse again the same.

Teo, sorry about that. We did release an update yesterday which had the problems you describe, but we followed up with a second update a few hours later which included the fix. Your installation would probably have already updated by now, but if not, please check for an update and restart to get back to a much improved DevStyle.

Jim, sorry about the problem. It appears to be specific to the eclipse CPP package (the problem doesn't occur with the Java packages) and I've raised a problem report for development to investigate and get a fix out.
Thanks for reporting the issue.

I haven't managed to get eclipse (2018-12) working with devstyle for a while now. As soon as you install the theme project explorer goes blank and eclipse pretty much stops working with no dialogs or context menu. Only solution was to go back to 2018-09. Any ideas?
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Mon, 2018-12-10 03:53
Sorry you've had problems with DevStyle on the latest eclipse. I did a quick test with DevStyle on RC2 on Windows 10 but didn't see any problems. Which OS are you using and are there any modifications to the OS or windowing system (e.g. a desktop theme)? It would be great if you could raise the issue on our forums (just click the "?" in the description) as that is a better platform for support than this reviews section of the MarketPlace. It would be great to get this sorted before the official release of eclipse 4.10.

Since we're coming up to January and Oracle's decision to charge people for Java I've been investigating ways to be an "open" Java developer... Everything seems be running great (which is the good news) although Darkest Dark (which I love) did warn me about Open JDK and Third Party fonts, then suggested I move to Oracle JDK (which kind of defeats the purpose)..
Best regards, Ben
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Wed, 2018-12-12 04:37
Ben, we're reviewing performance and issues experienced with prior versions of OpenJDK, to ascertain the best course of action here. Since you're actively using Darkest Dark with Open JDK, have you noticed any problems? Can you share your OS/Eclipse version/JDK version details too? Thank you for asking!

Installing this feature into Eclipse Photon broke the installation in the following way:
FWIW, I'm on Kubuntu.
PS: I could get back into the game by invoking Eclipse with "-clear -clean", which should never be necessary just to get into the IDE
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Tue, 2018-12-04 03:53
Stephan, sorry that you couldn't launch without the -clean option once but it's great you persevered. I hope you're enjoying DevStyle now.
Would you be able to work with us to figure out what happened in your case? I've tried with a clean install of eclipse on a clean install of Kubuntu 18.04 but I'm sure that wasn't your situation. It may be related to the state of the workspace or the state of the eclipse configuration at the time. We could confirm this if you could do a fresh install of DevStyle onto a fresh install of eclipse, with a fresh workspace. If that all works, then could you let us have your eclipse configuration from the existing setup to help us replicate it? The configuration can be obtained by going to Help>About>Installation Details>Configuration and then copy it to the clipboard to paste into a new text file. If possible, could you provide that information on the support forums, rather than what is designed as a review platform? You'd be able to attach files in the forums at: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/darkest-dark/ .
Thanks for reporting this, hopefully, we can get to the root of the problem.
Submitted by Sebastian Nunez on Sat, 2018-12-01 04:23
Currently, I’m using the dark theme with my own editor color scheme. However, every time I close Eclipse 2018-19 and re open it, all my Syntax Coloring settings reset (not the colors themselves but rather my preset bold/italics settings). For example, I like to have the keyword “return” in bold but even though I have exported/imported my settings they still will change upon launch. Interestingly, I tried saving my settings without your plugin installed and they remained upon restart. In the end, I’m not sure what’s going on and it’s very frustrating.
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Thu, 2018-12-06 04:16
Sebastian, we did see something similar early this year. Although we weren't able to track down the problem then (though there was a possibility that Oomph tracking settings changes might have been part of the problem), the issue was solved by starting eclipse with a new workspace and importing projects into it. A new workspace is always a good check as corruption in a workspace does occasionally occur.
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Tue, 2018-12-04 04:51
If you could raise the issue on our support forum at https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/theme-problems/ that would also allow you to attach your eclipse error log, which may contain errors related to the problem (it would help if you could clear the log then reproduce the problem, to ensure the log is concentrated on the issue).

After I decided to give a chance for the pluging, even with the agressive license, I just can't use my Eclipse any more. When I open it it stays like this: https : //i.imgur.com/0OcrreI.png
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Tue, 2018-12-04 03:36
Thiago, thanks for giving it a go. Sorry that your first experience was terrible. It seems that another user sees the same thing though this is the first we've heard of this particular issue, despite thousands of installs. The other user is running Kubuntu, though we couldn't replicate with a straightforward install. The other person, Stephan, says he managed to sort it by launching once with the -clean flag. Though this shouldn't be needed, can you try this to see if it fixes it? I would also have suggested trying a fresh workspace, as a test. It may be that the state of the workspace or configuration, with other plugins and settings weren't properly coped with by the initial launch of DevStyle and it would be great if we could track this down to fix it for other users. If possible, could you raise the issue on the support forums, rather than what is designed as a review platform? You'd be able to attach files in the forums at: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/darkest-dark/ and it may be helpful to attach the eclipse configuration at the point of install.
Alternatively, if you can post the OS and windowing system here, along with the build and package of eclipse, that may help us replicate it. Also, if there are some major plugins you've installed, it may give us more clues.
Thanks for any help you can provide and sorry, again, for having a really bad first experience. I hope you can give it another go.

I was also using Kubuntu with Eclipse Eclipse 2018-09. I managed to get my Eclipse back by removing all com.genuinetec* plugins and features from my install.
Submitted by Stephan Herrmann on Thu, 2018-12-06 13:25
Note that in my comment I mentioned two flags: "-clear -clean". Not sure which of these options actually did the trick...
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Fri, 2018-12-07 04:43
Thanks, Stephan. It's likely the -clean option that did it. There isn't a -clear option for eclipse, that I'm aware of, although there is a -clearPersistedState option but, as far as I can tell, abbreviated options don't work (unfortunately, eclipse doesn't let you know if it doesn't recognize an option, it just ignores it).
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Wed, 2018-12-05 22:34
Thiago, thanks for the information. So we know that a common element is Kubuntu but, unfortunately, there isn't much else to go on to investigate the problem. However, I'm going to see if we can, at least, make that Welcome window resizeable, and continue trying to replicate the problem. I hope you revisit the plugin and perhaps try the -clean option if this same issue arises.
Submitted by Lourens Janse van Rensburg on Sat, 2020-01-04 04:10
Same here, also on Kubuntu.
It's trying to show some kind of welcome wizard, only on the 1st run after installing DevStyle.
Solution is to run it from the command line just once, then it displays correctly and you get past the welcome wizard.
Thereafter you can launch it from the desktop icon just fine.
(Would be great if the dev can just make the wizard window resizable.)

The theme looks amazing but when there is a bug or a word misspelt in my programs, the error icon on the incorrect line that used to show up in the classic theme (displays an error message when the cursor is hovering over it) is not displayed anymore. is there any way i could get that back? I'm using Eclipse Java Oxygen, version 3a, release 4.7.3a.
Submitted by Tony Weddle on Fri, 2018-11-30 04:50
Nathan, sorry you're having a problem. It's difficult to think of how a theme could alter behavior in that way and we haven't been able to reproduce the problem so far. Can you ensure you're using the same editor you were before installing DevStyle? Perhaps leave the editor open and then switch back to the Classic theme (you'd need a restart) and see if you get that behavior back. You can also check which default editor is set for the file by right clicking on the file and selecting Open With (the default editor will have a highlighted icon).
If you've installed DevStyle as part of another plugin feature, you may be seeing a different editor behavior. If you continue to see this problem, is it possible for you to raise a new topic for it on our forums? Here is the forum home URL: https://www.genuitec.com/forums/ . You should use the appropriate forum for the product you've installed (or just DevStyle>Theme Problems if it still seems like a theme issue).
