Love the colors but when I installed this theme on the latest Eclipse, 2021-03 the highlight colors for selected items makes them unreadable. (Grey text on Grey background.) I don't see a way to attach a pic.

Great plugin, I really like the themes.
However, there is a problem on Xubuntu 20.04.2 LTS running the default, stock Greybird theme.
The current position in all trees (Project Explorer, Outline, etc) is highlighted with background color #6688ff (102, 136, 255), which does not look like in the screenshots. I also tried in Windows 10 with same Eclipse version and the highlighting in the Outline and Project Explorer panes looks correct there.
Trying other themes in DevStyle and also in XFCE did not help.
The default Eclipse themes each highlight with their own, different blueish, less intrusive color, so it appears that this element is definitely stylable.
Details: Eclipse CDT Version: 2021-03 (4.19.0) Build id: 20210312-0638, DevStyle installed from Eclipse Marketplace. No other plugins installed.

Great plugin, only issue is that I have tried everything under the sun to set the matching tag high lite color and I can't. I'm using the darkest theme with a mild to dark gray background so i can at least see the black line box around the tags. If I use the black background you can't see anything. Please advise and thank you

I had installed in other eclipse and I can see the sql ok
But in my eclipse (same version) I tried to reinstall the theme but it still being too dark :(
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Mon, 2021-02-15 07:43
Do you have any additional plugins installed and can you please let us know what version of Eclipse you're using? If you try switching to other dark themes (within the offerred DevStyle themes) do you see the same issue there too?

After installing into the latest version of DBeaver (via Install new software...) it goes into crash boot loop: starts, splashscreen appears, crashes, starts again etc... Only taskkill /f /im dbeaver.exe helped.
taskkill /f /im dbeaver.exe
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2021-01-22 14:40
Vsevolod, we specifically tried the latest version of DBeaver and could not reproduce this issue. Are you using the DBeaver standalone installer (assuming version 7.3.3) or have you installed DBeaver via update site into Eclipse? If the latter, do share the version and distribution of Eclipse being used.
Submitted by Juan Lopez on Tue, 2021-02-09 09:40
I have the same issue than "Vsevolod" in DBeaver 7.3.4. I don't have any Eclipse distribution installed. I followed the steps from DBeaver webpage (dbeaver.com/docs/wiki/Eclipse-extensions/) and now I can't use the application. Is it possible to unninstall the extension without run the app?

After successful installation I can see DevStyle Theme under General > Appearance but there is no DevStyle option under preferences, please help
Submitted by Brian Fernandes on Fri, 2020-12-11 15:16
Swapnil, this could be because of an installation issue. As we just released a new version (2020.12.11), I would recommend updating - let us know if you still see the problem after the update.

When using darkest dark with lombok only the bottom half of the project seems to be colored. The coloring can be fixed with ctrl + shift + o (import all), but it seems clumsy to apply this command after even the smallest change. I have the newest version of eclipse, darkest dark and lombok

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!
Submitted by Tomislav Sulentic on Sat, 2020-04-25 07:49
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or open an issue on our forums, we'd be able to take a deeper look. Thanks!
Submitted by Li Misii on Mon, 2020-04-20 09:11
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!

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.
