ErrorFinder theme for Gamma

This is a theme for Gamma that sacrifices all usability for one function: Making it easier to find red errors on nodes, pins and links.

The idea is you would switch to this theme for a short time when there is a small red pin you know is there but cannot see.

Tested with 2021.4.12


ErrorFinder Theme


Original Dark theme


To install

  • Download the zip here
    ErrorFinder_0.1.css.zip (2.4 KB)

  • Open your gamma install > go to the hamburger menu top right > click themes > click ‘explore’ to open your current theme folder (Note if you are sometimes switching between preview and stable you will have two folders for gamma and gamma-preview)

  • extract the css file from the zip into the theme folder

  • In the themes section of the hamburger menu you can now select the theme


Troubleshooting

  • If you have issues with any theme then edit your settings.xml file at
    C:\ (user)\Documents\vvvv\ (Gamma) or (Gamma-Preview)\settings.xml
  • Find the entry for ‘stylesheet’ and make the value blank to return to default theme

Future

  • Anyone who is interested feel free to improve this
  • I could not work out how to change the stroke width on error links, these are still difficult to see due to the stroke being so thin.
  • I could not work how to darken the dots in the center of typed pads. I thought it should be .typeannotation but it does not seem to have an effect.
