V8 interface colors - I don't get it

@Mikael_Westerlundh that’s not the default bg color for tooltips. Which colors did you customize?

@Mikael_Westerlundh ok, so you are in dark mode. In that case, that’s not the default text color. The default text color is white

Everything else is white text (see pic) How can change tooltip text to white?

@Mikael_Westerlundh Did you make any edits to text colors in the advanced settings?

I changed every single color I saw in advanced but I still can’t find it :crazy_face:

I counted in the area of 100 color options … did you really change all ?

I think so. Some color settings are not properly tagged with the word ‘color’ so probably more.

This is a perfect example where it would be useful to be able to share interface pallets without having to share a whole other settings.

Even with command OptionsExport I can see a bunch of other settings being exported.

I think if you search ‘ui’ you get a lot more of results:

I think some color settings are simply not exposed in here.


On my systems (R8.8) the cursor tooltip is always black text on a white background, regardless of Rhino light/dark mode and/or Windows (10 or 11) light/dark mode settings. Are you on Windows or Mac? If Windows, how did you get a white on black cursor tooltip?

Probably but it’s started with the grayed out tooltip text. I can’t recall any changes permanently change duh. In pic below (UI part); can U tell me what it stand for/ what it do?

I see that here too on Windows

Ok, it seems not to be a Rhino 8 problem, after all. I change to light theme in the macOS and back to dark direct and now it’s ok; white text on dark bg. Sorry för the fuzz…


I remember liking to change the color of the text in this dialogue but don’t remember finding a way to do it :sweat_smile:

If I could make it a green contrast that would be sweet :sunglasses:
