Patch: Remove black from dialogs and bars

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (3 votes)

Replaces black backgrounds of dialogs and bars with a dimmer color based on the ambience (i.e. Theme.highlightDimmerColor). In the latest release for system dialogs it also removes transparency to increase legibility and drops a black layer on the rest of the screen to make them more distinct.


Affected elements:

  • Connection selector
  • System dialogs
  • Volume bar
  • Uninteractive notifications (e.g. "Connected" to networks)
