Good afternoon. Obsidian is really beautiful. There is 1 problem. When I use WPS (spreadsheet) the whole sheet itself is totally black. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi,
you've done everything right. I know this issue, but it is difficult to fix. WPS Spreadsheet takes the color directly from the theme-base-color of gtk2.
Normally, an application which brings its own UI-skin should set _every_ color by itself and not pick up single colors from the system theme. So imho it's a problem of WPS Spreadsheet. In Writer and Presentation they've done it correctly. Have you tried changing the color of the sheet manually? (Options -> color). I've already tried to fix it, but it seems I cannot fix this. If I change the color to light, it would affect lots of components in every other application...

...I feard it.
Maybe I can handle it with the next major release: I'm currently working on a light version with a dark-mode. The dark mode will be the current theme. This will fix some other issues like dark Textfields in Firefox or Chrome - and with a little bit of luck, the dark cells in Spreadsheet as well.
If everything goes well, it will be finished in November, for I'm also working on compatibility with the latest Gnome version, and this takes time...

I enjoy this theme, but Firefox has issues with it. In text boxes, it seems that the text box is either dark gray with dark gray text, or white with white text. With the latter I cannot see what I type at all, due to the white text on white background. With the dark gray text boxes, I can see the text but it's hard. When I change to a different theme, these issues go away.

Yes, the textfields in FF are still a problem. I'm also using Firefox as my default/favourite browser, but I still haven't figured out how to fix this. More, I don't know any dark theme which can handle it. For the moment, I'm looking forward to Firefox 57, which will bring better gtk+ support.
Anyway, if I've found a way to fix it, I'll bring an update asap, just because I need it by myself ;-)

If it helps, the VimixDark theme doesn't have this issue. Maybe you can look at that theme to see how they deal with it?

Thanks!

Thank you! I've taken a look at it. Unfortunately it only seems to work with GNOME if the user enables the usage of dark themes in the Tweak Tool: Firefox textfields stay at the default (light) version while all other applications become dark. Anyway, I found a way to do a workaround for our Firefox-problem - quick-and-dirty but it seems to work for the moment ;-) Just check out the latest version. Good luck and big thanks for your help!

I've only been testing the new version for a short while, but so far, it seems as though it's fixed. Thanks!

It looks like there are still some issues. The new version fixes the text boxes that used to have white text on a white background, making it invisible. I've been unable to reproduce that.

However, some text boxes have a dark background and dark text. The gray background with gray text is visible, but very hard to see.

Yes, I've already seen the problem with the dark textboxes and text in the chrome addressbar. I'm currently trying to fix it. Have you seen it somewhere else? In any other application?

I've seen this in Firefox as well.

Here's an example in Firefox:

Here's an example of textboxes being dark, until you click on them:

Ok, seems I'll have to create a light variant as a default with the current one as its dark mode. This is how Vimix and OSX-Arc-Collection handle it. Give me 1 or 2 weeks.
For the moment, I'll remove the Firefox workaround 'cause there are much more Chrome users out there than Firefox users (unfortunately) and the FF-workaround has this nasty side effect in Chrome... If the light variant is released, lovers of dark will have to enable the dark mode, Firefox will work, Chrome will work and everyone's happy :-)

Great work, thank you.

I got something strange with firefox tabs (https://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2017/38/2/1505827231-obsidian2-firefoxtabs.jpg). Is it normal that the tab isn(t fully colorized ?

Hey,
this shouldn't happen. Seems like some kind of caching problem (maybe your previous theme was light?). I'm using Firefox as well and my FF-tabs are completely dark. Does this happen even after a restart of Firefox?
