Hello,

I noticed there's an scrapped (not in debug or release builds and missing bitmaps, seeminly only concept) theme that kinda has hints of Vista and XP mixed with glossy effect. Why is this never used or made? It would be amazing to have variety like this.

Would love to see this as a real theme. :shock:
Wonder why it was scrapped.

From the looks of it; it was only a photoshop mockup. That raises a question why even add it to the repository.

Hence my entire "Would love to see this as a real theme." Also, do you know who I am?

Yes, I know you're in the unofficial Discord.
Someone should really finalize this theme, also guidelines for designers would be nice.

David was working on a tool to convert between a large single image and the individual files needed to make a theme. Finishing this theme is probably still on his todo list.

A tool would be nice for designers. Can't wait until he gets around doing it.
