Is Vuforia Studio equipped with a Dark Mode theme? I used to work in Studio every day until eyestrain got to me. A lot of programs I use feature dark themes. Creo Illustrate and Vuforia Studio are one of the few without a Dark Mode.
If Vuforia Studio does not have a Dark Mode, is there some place where I can contribute to this feature? I have taken a little bit of time to create my own dark theme. The product developers are more than welcome to use my work to create a Dark Mode. Please find the results in the attachments. I ensured that the 3D scene and 2D canvas remain original to guarantee that everything in the experience is displayed correctly. The only files I changed were main.css and third-party.css. I think this is a feature that could be added to the 'settings' window.
With kind regards,
Please find the edited files here.
They need to replace main.css and third-party.css in C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\VuforiaStudio\studio-download.vuforia.io\dist\client\css and have been updated for Vuforia Studio 9.4.0 .
No Vuforia Studio doesn't have a dark theme.
Thanks you for your sharing, it is a great idea.
I believe that the Product Managers will like it.
I have reported that to R&D and PMs in JIRA Ticket VTS-1101.
Updated files for Vuforia Studio 126.96.36.19919. Installation method is the same. I added a README.txt which explains the process in more detail. The described process allows the user to revert back to the original design if deemed necessary.
Updated files for Vuforia Studio 188.8.131.5253. Changed the readme.txt, because the instructions of uninstalling the dark mode used the dark mode files to do that. If followed literally, it would only reapply the dark mode instead of removing it.
@sdidier , is there any update on the Jira ticket?
Updated files for Vuforia Studio 9.10.0, but with a sidenote:
The attached dark mode files were created using the updated files from the appxbundle, so there is no guarantee that it works with the legacy version.
There is a new method required to make it work for the appxbundle version of Vuforia Studio. The new method allows the user to override certain values or files while keeping the app fully intact. Please find the instructions in the ZIP-file.
With kind regards,
First of all, thanks alot for that dark mode. i had recently aswell eyestrain and this should help.
Your README.txt for Vuforia 9.14 is not up to date
And the extension is not needed anymore. i used only the dev tools
and followed this steps:
It works like a charm. Thanks again.
Thank you for using dark mode! Happy to help 🙂
You are correct about the VuS version number, I did not check the readme.txt file before uploading. However, I am unable to find 'Overrides' in the devtools without the extension installed. The described steps 3 through 5 is only possible for me because of the extension, otherwise I would not know how to make it work. I also require updating the rules in the overrides section manually, where your guide suggests it might be automatic. Is that because of changing the file names and their location?
