Uppercase buttons

This setting sets the text of the buttons to be uppercase, just like the Material Design buttons. This is optimal for a full-fledged Material Design Experience.

Note: Because the UI was originally intended to be used with regular cased buttons, some buttons with longer text will have their text overflowing outside of the button. Since it’s not possible to control the size of such buttons, there is no possibility to fix this. However, such cases are quite rare, but if it’s absolutely bothers you, you can still disable this feature via this option.


Transparent Scrollbars and Accent Scrollbars

These options control the appearance of the scrollbars. Note: This feature works completely on Windows and Linux, but on Mac it is only working for non-native scrollbars (e.g. scrollbars that appear only while scrolling).

Transparent scrollbars will add transparency to the scrollbars and set it as the same color as the current theme’s background color. This is adding 50% opacity and there is no way to change it.

Accent scrollbars will replace the scrollbar color with the current accent color.

Note: These options are mutually exclusive, and Accent Scrollbars take precedence over Transparent Scrollbars.

Note 2: Accent colors are set at the start of the application. If you change the accent color, you will need a full restart to see it reflected on the scrollbars. Same for the Transparent Scrollbars, if you switch themes you will need a full restart to see it taking the new theme’s color.

Note 3: Since 2019.1 versions, the editor scrollbar color is now set by the Color Scheme instead of by the Theme. This makes sense as the color scheme is not necessarily following the theme and might be off with the theme. There is no option to configure this at the moment but it will soon be available inside the Color Scheme General Settings.


Tabs Shadow

This option enables/disables the shadow under the tabs.
