Omnifocus Themes
 
Hi,
I discovered this morning the ability to load/save themes for OmniFocus ('Style' pane of the Preferences). I don't know since when this has been available, but whatever, the thing is great. I'm with no doubt part of those people claiming that Omnifocus is brilliant but could do some effort on UI.
No doubt that theming is a first step to a better UI design (although theming in essence doesn't effect design).

Along with the above considerations, I have a question regarding themes:

Does a repository for themes exist at the OmniGroup, or somewhere else over the net? I'd love to see what omni did, and compare it to user-defined themes.
Even better : are some themes already available in the app's bundle?

There are still some theme issues we're sorting out.

But I know that I and some others at Omni have been playing around with the typography, and I think we even changed some of the defaults pretty recently.

At this time we don't plan to include any themes in the bundle. We'd much rather make sure that the defaults work well for the majority of folks.

This theme idea may solve the 3x5 card printing and data-density problem that has compeletly frustrated me with Omnifocus. It would be nice to save the column spacing as well so that we can pack more in during printing.

Now, as long as perspectives can switch themes, I think we're onto a printing solution to 3x5 cards... it would also be nice to group printing out by project only or by context only... i.e., one 3x5 card per project, or one 3x5 card per context (of course these may need to spill onto other cards as well, but should make a "new page" break at the end of their record.)

I have some playing to do to figure this out I guess...

Here's a little typography-based (rather than indentation-based) theme I'm working on for my own use. Please let me know what you think of it.

Wow, trying to load that theme totally sent OF into the weeds! CPU meter is still pinned several minutes later... I'll send in a trace. Oh, and then pressing Reset got the same result, followed by a crash. There might still be some room for optimization here :)

I always have omnifocus open on the laptop while I'm working on the external display and I don't like having a white bright screen on the side so I just made a darker template.

I did it in a couple of minutes and it's not too good so if someone improves it I would appreciate if they post it here.

I love theming, so I made this. I call it 'Ist Grun'.

Enjoy.

I thought this thread deserved a bump - it seems like the theming issues have been mostly fleshed out. Do people have any themes out there that they love - or is anyone building a repository (as the OP asked about)?

I'm still trying to put one together that makes sense - but I'd love to see what some of the more creatively-inclined OFers have come up with.

I was just going through some of the threads and looking to freshen up my themes and came across some good ones! This thread deserves a double-bump!

I, too, work late at night and don't like the bright default display. I like the dark theme posted above, but does anyone know if we will be able to change the colors of the check boxes? They (along with other navigation items) can get lost on dark backgrounds... Perhaps just making any navigation elements on the same item line inherit the corresponding text's color???

I love this theme but some of the box are showing weird.

my Inbox is coming up as such:

and the input shows like this:

if these two where fixed some how, I'd love this sooo much.
