Theme customizing

Back in Nov 12 2016 I found this post. Is there a way to find out what each of the items are? (Within software or a list) Also is there a way to save a custom theme?

Are there any plans to create a better Custom Theme screen. It would be nice to have the option to save a theme as you're developing your preference. To step complete out of customizing a theme in order to see what it actually looks like is very time consuming. It would be great if when you selected a Text or Background description, to be changed, it would be highlighted on the program so you could identify what you are about to change. Unless you've written the program you don't know what or where 'listBackground' is. I've attempted to change a font, it was until I backed out of 'Preference' I able to see it wasn't the font I was attempting to change. Even a PDF document describing your different customize theme items would be of great help. The cadillac of choice would be to left click on a text or background, bring up a color preference, and from there select your preferred color.

    We're actually in the process of updating this for the next release. If you want to try the latest preview version (, you'll see in the custom theme preferences that a lot of those cryptic terms now have a more detailed description about what they actually represent.

    I notice in the latest preview build there are quite a lot of colour blocks in the custom theme area but there is no text along side them to indicate what they are. These seem to be some of the more cryptic ones that had text in MD2019 but I could not work out what they did.

    What is happening with these?

    Hi dwg,

    When I go into the custom theme area in the preview, I see the attached screenshot, which seems to be a lot more descriptive than what we had in the 2019 version. Is this not what you are seeing?

    HI Ethan,

    A lot of that text was in the later 2019 releases, but I see it has been augmented a bit further.

    If you scroll down the list you should find some colour blocks that no longer have any text next to them and this is what I was commenting on.
