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.

2. Top of the Project Explorer:
3. Search icon when I right click on a File:
4. PHP Search icon on Search window:

We double checked these cases and the icons do appear as expected. Do you mind posting on our forums with a screenshot so we can take a look? Also, please let us know what OS / version you're on.

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.
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. :)

Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-08-23 11:28
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!

In package explorer, some items are higlighted in white and the icons are not corresponding to the DevStyle theme
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2019-07-05 11:18
Servan, that sounds really bizarre - can you let us know what Eclipse distribution and version you're using, and what operating system? I'm assuming you've tried switching between the themes to see if that would help? Please consider posting on our forums we can discuss in detail. https://www.genuitec.com/forums/topics/devstyle/getting-help/

The description or information regarding a function, variable type or keyword which can be usually seen by hovering the cursor over the text is not readable. The text is black on black background except for the links which are highlighted in blue.

Submitted by Joel Mclean on Fri, 2019-05-24 04:47
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 :(

John - thank you for the report. I just confirmed that the site is up now, and we run tests frequently to ensure our update sites stay online; we have had no recent outages. Can you access the URL to that artifact in a regular browser? It's possible that you have a corrupt cache, and you can try with a fresh install of Eclipse, or go to Preferences > Install/Update > Available Software Site, locate the site and hit Reload.

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. ;-(

Installing this makes Eclipse take minutes to start up, and then is sluggish when it finally opens.
This is on an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor

I'm sorry we missed your post, Jim. We're very sensitive about performance, and none of the changes we make should have a performance impact, especially one as severe as you describe. We've had no other reports of performance issues either, but would be happy to examine your environment to see if there is something amiss.

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.
