Custom Accent Color

This setting controls the current accent color used throughout the app.

Accent color is used in many places such as:

  • Quick documentation
  • Parameter Info
  • Links and bold texts in documentation panels
  • Text, number and password boxes border
  • Dropdowns border
  • Checkboxes and Radio Buttons fill color
  • etc…

While a set of predefined accent colors are available in the Accent Color Chooser, this setting allows you to set your own custom color.

Override Accent Color

Since version 2.6.0 there is the possibility to override the custom accent color with the default one bundled with the theme. For instance, for Oceanic the accent color will be teal while for Darker it will be orange etc.

This is especially useful for external themes, so that Themes designers can provide their own accent color.


  • Contrast color is also used inside “striped tables”, independently of the setting.
  • Some resources, such as the scrollbar, will not get the new custom accent color until next restart.
