FS#1668 - Text color of command line unreadable with KDE's Breeze Dark color scheme

I prefer the Breeze Dark color scheme as it find it less stressful on my eyes, however it’s unusable with QCAD where the Command Line prompts and responses are rendered as a very light grey on a white background. I believe the proper fix would be one (or both) of:

  • Make the Command Line area background follow the desktop scheme. (It appears that the text already does so, hence the light text, but since the background doesn’t it becomes unusable.)
  • Provide a configuration option for the text and/or background color used in the Command Line area.

Screen shots are attached showing both Breeze and Breeze Dark schemes.

Did you try to switch the QCAD theme to Dark?

I must admit with shame that I did not. I perused the color settings but completely missed that one. Changing it did not help immediately, but upon a quit/restart all is good. Thanks!

Also, I'm curious, what's the status for Hi-DPI support? I have a new 4k monitor that I love and was surprised to see that QCAD being a Qt app isn't behaving perfectly. I wouldn't be so surprised if it were GTK based. I have to adjust dialogs because text is so clipped and tool widgets are overly small.
