Forgive me if this is already available and I just missed it, but is there Dark Mode support for the Windows version?
I'm currently working on some nighttime shots and the white GUI of TG is like staring into the sun. It's very hard to get a good read of the image previews.

Cheers!

There isn't a dark theme mode. The only way is to change your window colors and such. But in Windows 10 this support is legacy, and very wonky. For example my PC randomly resets to my old dark themes i set up for someone else, which doesn't even work great in TG cause the text can't be changed that I can find. So then you can't read stuff well. In Windows 7 or XP this should work better by just changing window and button and text colors.

Thanks WAS. I changed my W10 settings to Dark Mode, but nothing changed inside Terragen.

That's totally different then window class colors, which is changed via the registry now.

Colors are stored in the registry Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Colors

Color values are RGB.

We are working on a new UI which has a dark mode. We might be able to use it for Terragen 5.
