Lock Light/Dark Theme Switch

Hello,

We are looking for a way to lock light/dark theme switch of the Shotgun browser.

Sometimes it is difficult to maintain the readability of cells when we apply the cell color settings.
Is there a way to make artists use only dark theme?

Thanks,

Yu

Hi @yu-otsuka,

I don’t think there is a way currently to lock the theme. You could follow the post here to submit your feedback.

For now, you probably need to switch between light/dark theme to ensure the cell color you pick up looks obvious enough for your artists.

I’m sorry for the inconvenience. You could also send us examples of cell colors you think are not conspicuous in light theme. We will see if there is anything our UI design team could do to help.

Cheers,
Ben

Hi Ben,

Thank you for clarifying!
I’ll test with it more and see if we can achieve what we want.

Cheers,

Something I remember from when the dark theme first emerged was that, unless you actually specify text color in the rule, it’ll change to attempt to match from light to dark theme, making things unreadable in one or the other. I’d try setting the text color in any rules you have in place to see if that helps.
