I downloaded and tested Scrivener 3 beta, I liked it. And figured out how to make dark mode, by clicking on the Dark Mode button in the Options/Manage, or Windows/Themes menu, it was that easy. Totally awesome. But I want black background, black skins, black everything, and only white, yellow, or bright green texts showing up easily.
I remembers Mellow Yellow I saw on L&L,, only for Mac OS Scrivener. How to import it into the WIndows Scrivener v3?
Fiddling around, I figured out how, then I saved it as a .prefs file, just to have it safe and handy, just in case. Then I figured out I can export the .prefs file as a .scritheme file.
It's MellowYellow theme, from this page: https://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=40621.
I've been wracking my tired brain trying to reconstruct the steps I did that created these two files. I got distracted by so many themes and downloaded them before I realises that .stheme files are for Mac Scrivener, not Window Scrivener.
I'm wondering if I found MellowYellow.prefs by downloading it from here or from someone's github link or such. If so, thank you for making the file available, much appreciated.
I also figured, why not let you all know about what I did, using prefs and then exporting them as .scrtheme files, that way, we can try lots of themes available for Windows Scriveners, though only v3, as these cannot be imported or use in older version of Windows 1.9. Sorry. I tried.
Anyways, here's the two files I exported. Hopes it works for you, and you can modify them anyway you liked. I claimed no ownership over the files, okay. Also, disclaimer, I am not liable for any damages if these files messes up something. Back up first, then test, if you don't like it, then just revert to default, then puts back what you liked, okay.
All I wanted was to make Scrivener as black as possible, with only white, or yellow, or green texts showing up.
That's it, no worries.
I tried to import the new MellowYellow.prefs into my Windows Scrivener 1.9, but no go, still same as before. I realises it'll only work because v3 beta is newer than the old v1.9 version.
I made another .prefs file, with the Source Sans Pro Black font for the texts in the Main Editor area, easier to read, I was trying to replicated the old green fonts on computer screens back in the 1980s that I'd seen. I like playing with fonts, find something that's readable and not wear out my eyes, ha ha.
Here's the place where to get these files, okay. https://github.com/defman2020/ScrivenerYellowMellow
For what it's worth, it's all I did, fiddling around, and coming up with something workable that I could use.
