Nearly unreadable properties in Qt Creator Flat Dark theme

  • Some property fields are nearly unreadable in Flat Dark theme.
    As the image shows, X and Y look good, but W and H have almost no contrast between the text and background. They become readable if I select the field, but this tedious. Is there a setting I can tweak?


    I've tried the other dark themes and the field text seems OK but I like Flat Dark the most, except for this one thing.

  • you can change the colors in the theme - for me on mac the location is /Resources/themes/flat-dark.creatortheme

    the color you want to change is - #1d545c It appears in a few locations and probably you want to change all of them to your preferred color to have a consistent UI.

  • @BrookCronin Thanks!
    I changed DSinteraction=ff1d545c to DSinteraction=ff4d848c and it looks a lot better to me.

    The file on my Ubuntu 20.04.1 is in <qt-dir>/Tools/QtCreator/share/qtcreator/themes/flat-dark.creatortheme.
