having black texts on white background (and not white text on black bg)


i do not know why you chose to have user interface in "black-grey background with white text". it hurts the eyes and not just me, it is a natural reaction for a lot of people.

i think you should read that :

helium got a lot of tabs and arrays and grids user controls, so it hurts a lot when you start reading with concentration, even in light room. i reapeat, it is not just me, it is natural body reaction.

As a long time computer user and developper, i find only ONE sofware kind where white on black is userful : graphics and video editing.

and sometimes, some linux shell windows (only little one, on very big screens, never on fullscreen)

so, having a way to switch of even choose the color of background and text would be VERY "welcoming".


i searched in the menus but i did not find this feature to switch the color theme, where is it ?

also, i noticed there is no offline help (to search by keyword) like a .help file on windows.

Please see the Visual section in this link:

And no, we have no offline help and currently no plans to implement one neither (same as for the old Helium versions)

thank you a lot !

it runs for me !

good feature ! must be a default one (in light them i mean) !

Have you tried the light theme which uses black text on white background?

That function does what you are requesting.
