I instelled this plugin in my Eclipse. After installation the "Eclipse Marketplace" in the Help menu is visibile only when I run "as administrator".
How can I solve?

I get an error when I attempt download of Darket Dark Theme for the following methods in Spring Tool Suite 4 (Version: 4.5.1.RELEASE, Build Id: 202001211336). (I had to edit urls to not trigger link check for this comment)
1. I drag the INSTALL button from this marketplace.eclipse.org page onto STS workspace: "No repository found at http:// www. genuitec.com/updates/devstyle/ci/."
2. From Eclipse Marketplace in STS when I select to install Darket Dark Theme with DevStyle 2020.7.20. Error from Marketplace: "Artifact not found: http:// www. genuitec.com/updates/devstyle/ci/compositeContent.jar."
3. From STS - Help - Install New Software - Work with "http:// www.genuitec.com/updates/devstyle/ci" returns error: "Could not find http:// www.genuitec.com/updates/devstyle/ci"

Mary, I just confirmed that our DevStyle update site is up an running. These errors may have been caused by a temporary network glitch at either end - if you try again this should just work. Please do, and let me know if you still experience issues.
Submitted by Mary Alexander on Wed, 2020-09-30 17:55
Thank you for the reply. I tried all methods again, and same error. I am online and not connected to VPN as VPN prevents eclipse market place. I am able to install other market place plugins. If there is not a way to download the plugin manually, I'll just move on. =)
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2020-10-02 13:23
Mary, very odd indeed. You can use the methods described in this thread to create a local mirror of the update site, and then install from the local location. I hope that works for you.

When I set color themes to "H:0, S:0, L:0" everything goes black but I want much darker than 0,0,100 but not black. Can you fix it for the next version or give me a styling shortcode that can match "#050505"?

How can I set the background image in the code editing area
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Wed, 2020-08-12 10:34
You cannot set a background image, but if you meant color, then go to Preferences > DevStyle > Color Themes and ensure Theme background is unchecked. Then go to Preferences > General > Editors > Text Editors and change the Background color setting from the color list at the bottom.

Hello! This issues is fixed now. Please update your DevStyle installation. Cheers!

I would prefer the original Eclipse light theme scrollbar, as dark theme scrollbar is unable to shift-click, inaccurate for annotations.
I hope there will be an option to disable theme scrollbar in later update
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2020-06-26 05:18
Duong, I've filed a bug so the dev team can look deeper into this. Thank you for asking!
Submitted by Dimitrios Valsamis on Sun, 2020-06-07 12:16
This is an awesome add-on for DBeaver, but unfortunately, I had to uninstall it as it causes issues with exporting query results. As soon as I install it, the lists of available 'Targets:' and 'Objects:' come up empty.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Thu, 2020-06-11 09:18
Dimitrios followed up on our forums (thanks!) to point out that this is actually a DBeaver bug that will be fixed in their next release.

First of all thanks for providing us a great theme which I wish it is a part of the standard bundle. So I applies the theme and I work on SAP ABAP editor. It works perfectly except when we navigte to the CLASS section, the editor becomes completely white and the code is nnot visisble,all that is visiole were parenthses and Inverted commas in the code.
Hope you will address this soon.
Appreciate your contribution to the marketpalce.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Thu, 2020-05-28 11:41
Appreciate the kind words, thank you! It's a bit tricky for us to debug ABAP coloring issues here, can you please create a post on our forum so we can dive into more detail? It would be helpful to have some screenshots of the editor. Also, do you see the same issues with the Eclipse Dark theme, or does that work fine? Thanks!
Submitted by Yongho Nam on Thu, 2020-05-07 20:55
https://marketplace.eclipse.org/comment/6542#comment-6542 -> I've already reported.
Hi, I've found the reason of why it is occurred.
I'm using Vrapper plug-in as well and if I installed both of them, the problem issued only on windows.
When I go to declaration using a shortcut, cursor disappeared. Any key doesn't work at the moment until click the editor using a mouse. But If the declaration is in a same file or the declaration is in other file but it was already opened before, the problem doesn't appear.
I mainly use CDT, Vrapper(VIM) plugins.
I hope my word delivered properly.
I really want to use theme. Thanks.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Thu, 2020-05-28 11:13
We appreciate you taking the time to track that down - we tried with the Vrapper plugin and were able to reproduce the issue locally. The bug has been updated with these details, and hopefully this won't be too difficult to fix. Thanks!

Hi, i love the theme, but it doesn't change the scroll bars in DBeaver on Win 10, is there a way to change them?
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Mon, 2020-05-04 15:09
Tomislav - glad you like our theme. I just checked the scrollbars in the DBeaver SQL editor and they looked fine, a couple of views looked OK as well. Can you tell us what editor or view you're talking about? Also, ensure you're not on the Windows Classic OS theme. If you can send a screenshot to us at email@example.com or open an issue on our forums, we'd be able to take a deeper look. Thanks!

i hope menu bar can change black
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Tue, 2020-04-21 02:40
Li, the menu is something we don't have much control over, unfortunately. On Linux and macOS, you need to change the OS to use a dark theme. Unfortunately this doesn't work on Windows yet, but we'll look into it - thank you for asking!

I'm running 2018 eclipse, after downloading the theme, I can no longer install updates. I get the error:
An error occurred while collecting items to be installed session context was:(profile=_home_rk1424_eclipse_rcp-latest-released_eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.........
I have tried out the different solutions I found on the web with no luck. I hope you can give me insights.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Wed, 2020-04-08 09:16
Yomi, your installation's metadata may have been corrupted by the plugin installation - unforutnately this is something we don't have much control over. The most expedient way of getting this fixed may be to start with a fresh (and more recent) Eclipse install. However, if you'd like to work on your existing install, please open a ticket here with the entire stack trace and we'll take a look ASAP.

Hi, today morning i installed this dark theme.Then onwards, my eclipse is getting hanged for every line i type the code. Its really annoying. May i know, how to fix it ?
I am using this version : 2020-03 (4.15.0)
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Tue, 2020-03-24 15:18
Shri - first, a few hours ago, we put out a new update for DevStyle, please ensure you are on the latest release. If the problem still occurs, do let us know what OS you're on, as well as what plugins you have in your Eclipse installation, or what base Eclipse install it is (PHP, CDT, Enterprise, etc.). If you could create a post on our forums along with your workspace error log, that would help us track this down. Thanks!

I am using eclypse 2019-12 (4.14.0) and lastest version of Darkest dark theme.
When looking at javadocs, I cannot read them because dark theme uses black font over black background.
Can you please take a look at it and try to solve it? Thank you so much.

Sorry that you are seeing this issue. Can you please check if any of the suggestions discussed in this forum post help fix the problem at your end? : www.genuitec.com/forums/topic/cant-read-javadoc-popup/

Hii Iam Using Eclipse Neon with Dark Theme on Mac OS, but iam facing issues with this version as i have writing my code so on the Content Assist it hides the first element and starts with a header, while changing this to the Normal Theme it works fine but with the DARKEST Theme this issue occurs
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Wed, 2019-11-27 14:58
Prashant, thanks for bringing this to our attention - we were able to reproduce this. The issue is specific to Eclipse Neon though, so if you upgrade to a more recent version of Eclipse, you would no longer experience this problem. We've filed a bug for this, but unfortunately cannot commit to a fix timeline right now.

1. windows 10 -> c/c++ eclipse(already installed darkest dark theme) -> open c file -> open declaration -> newly opened file -> loosing focus
2. windows 10 -> c/c++ eclipse(already installed darkest dark theme) -> open c file -> open declaration -> already opened file -> no problem
3. ubuntu 18.04 -> c/c++ eclipse(already installed darkest dark theme) -> open c file -> open declaration -> newly opened file -> no problem
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Tue, 2019-10-08 17:30
Yongho, could you clarify exactly what you mean by, "losing focus" - do you mean another editor is activated instead of the file just opened? Does it happen when a file of another type is similarly opened (if you have Java files for instance also in your environment)? Finally, just to be sure it's a theme issue - does this happen only with Darkest Dark activated, no problems in the default Eclipse theme?
Submitted by Yongho Nam on Thu, 2019-10-10 03:47
It means lost cursor from editor which I want to go to.
When I tested after uninstalling Darkest Dark theme and the result is no problem.
Also I installed Darkest Dark again, and the same issue is occurred.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-10-11 11:39
Thank you for following up. We've filed this as a bug and will let you know when fixed, or if we have more questions.

I hope my meaning delivered properly.
Submitted by R M on Fri, 2019-09-20 05:11
Love the theme. However, the core problem of eclipse viz cramped space between the lines in the editors makes it clumsy to look at. It might not be a big thing for people with good eye sight. Can you do something about the spacing between the lines? Something like Intellij has as a parameter to increase or decrease line spacing.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Tue, 2019-10-08 06:02
Sorry we missed your comment. I'll file this as a feature request, and see what we can do - I see the corresponding Eclipse bug has been open since 2002! If you haven't already tried it, the popular workaround seems to suggest using a "tall" font, like "Meslo Font" which might help improve redability for now.
Submitted by R M on Thu, 2019-10-10 00:21
Thanks for acknowledging the request.
I used this custom Meslo for a while and now I am using Fira code. It is easy on the eye for most part except for some badly indented code. If the abilityto increase line spacing to our linking can be included, then nothing like it. Thanks in advance.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-10-11 11:42
I see you have done you research! You might also want to try the newly released Cascadia Code font from Microsoft, I've switched to that myself. Will update this thread if we manage to add the line-spacing feature.
Submitted by R M on Wed, 2019-10-16 00:00
Tried and it is beautiful. The only draw back again is the cramped space between the lines. For now, sticking to Fira code. Hope you will be able to add the line spacing functionality. Eagerly waiting for your update. :)

Yash, we re-tested based on your report, and it worked out just fine. Perhaps it was just a glitch and you can retry? If not, can you please give us your OS and Eclipse version / distribution details so we can test your specific case?
Submitted by Frank Milde on Tue, 2019-08-20 00:47
For the Java version of Eclipse you can right click into code and go to Team -> Show revision information. Then when you hover over the line count you see who committed the current line of code. You see the commit message and a color diff of the the patch.
The light text in this color diff is unreadble against the green/red background.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-08-23 11:30
Frank, thank you for the report - this is a known issue that we are working on. I will update this thread when we release a fix - sorry about that!
Submitted by KH LEE on Mon, 2019-07-29 00:27
You're using it well. But there is a function that I want to modify. It's a "find" function. If you use the ctrl+f key to find a character, the focus of the mouse goes directly to the editor, and even if you want to complete the text you want to find, the focus goes to the editor and can't.
If I can set up this function, let me know how.
Cheer up until more users use this feature.
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-08-23 11:33
I assume you're talking about the inline find? We had some focus issues in early versions, though none as severe as you desribe, as it would render the search completley useless :) If you still see this issue with the latest DevStyle version, please contact us using the Support URL, and we'll be happy to investigate and fix. Could you also please share your OS and Eclipse version/distribution details? Thanks!
