This is something that has puzzled and irked me the whole time since I’ve been using SGP, and I’m sure it has bothered others as well. Don’t get me wrong, I love SGP, but why is there no option for a night mode or even just a dark theme for SGP? It seems every other program I use or have used for AP (BackyardEOS, APT, TheSkyX Pro, PHD2, FireCapture, Polemaster, and soon SharpCap) all are either natively dark or have an optional dark/nightmode theme.
Now one might say, “use a red screen program or put a red film on the screen”…however this does not work that well. The bright whites of the SGP interface are still bright even with the screen reddened, and since all other software I’m using is dark, I cannot see anything in those with the redscreen so am stuck flipping on and off the redscreen whenever I want to look at SGP. In addition when it comes to previewing a captured image, I still end up having to remove the redscreen to see the finer details on the image and am then night-blinded by the white interface once again.
How about an optional theme that is dark grey or black background instead of the white-grey, with white or light gray text instead of black?
Looking at the 3.0 update I figured by now this would be on the list of new features. I see plenty of interesting features, but nothing personally worth it to me to pay $79 for. However, I would probably pay that $79 just to have a dark theme option and nothing else. Just saying…
