Featherpad Theme Issue

I installed todays update for 23.04 and Featherpad has lost it’s theming… All other Qt apps work fine with the dark theme set but featherpad is as bright as the sun. Any ideas ?


Run Featherpad and then open “Options” tab. Go to Preferences and then “Text”. Scroll down to “Dark color theme” and check it. This should help

It’s already highlighted, gui still using light theme.

Pretty sure this is the result of a Qt upgrade. We started building Featherpad against Qt6 rather than Qt5, so the theme settings might not be carrying over right. I’ll bring this to the attention of the developers and see what we can do.

I just tested on my up to date 22.04 box with backports PPA enabled (LXQt 1.2.0) and the dark theme works as expected on Featherpad.
