Lovely mockup ❤
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2019-05-15 06:57:01 UTC
So the idea here is to switch from a predefined theme to a kind of theme editor. We would provide the area fill dialog with color, gradient, and bitmap and apply the result to the tool-/notebookbar (and ideally also the other UI controls). Sounds interesting.
Comment 4 Muhammet Kara 2019-05-15 07:56:15 UTC
Yep. Definitely interesting.

In fact, I was going to do something 'similar' a few months ago, but gave up because it didn't get support. :) (Search for "Please dont introduce a new dialog" in the Design channel on telegram for the context. I guess my mockup skills wasn't enough to convey the idea.)

Anyway, nice & well-thought mock-up IMO.

Muhammet, please provide some code pointers to make this an easyhack.

Thank you for the mockup. Is there an English version of it?

Just take the area fill dialog as example (with a specialized preview ideally but not necessarily). The original idea is discussed here https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/12/22/area-fill-options-made-consistent/
