Hi Mirek,

Nice to hear about the upcoming release! You have done great work.

I spotted the work on dark themes from the list and decided to try immediately, as I have long wanted to switch there for less eye strain.

In Windows, there are still some details to check. Please temporarily switch on a dark theme on your Windows 10 desktop to see what I'm referring to below. (Just open Settings in Windows and select High contrast, Turn on high contrast and then select some reasonable dark theme colors for Text, Hyperlinks, Disabled Text, Selected Text, Button Text and Background. Press Apply.) Then, run TheIDE to see where the tight spots are.

My eye immediately catches the following details when a Dark theme is enabled on Windows:

- Checkboxes on menu items stay in light theme coloring
- Close boxes on file tabs stay in light theme coloring
- package list text color stays black
- file list text color stays black (The same is true on FileSel)
- maybe code editor 'Dark theme' (as the button says in Settings dialog) could follow the window background color to use correct theme automatically.
- Settings dialog - Syntax highlighting - array column titles are not readable (light on light)
- Settings dialog (and other locations) - radio buttons have rough edges while the colors are swapped nicely though

Anyway, very nice work and quite a lot of it really!

Thanks and best regards,

Tom
