Screen colors, X-Lite version 5.0.1 build 86895

New version of X-Lite downloaded this morning on my laptop. Overall I don't see any problems with it but the entire desktop window it opens in is all light-colored versus a darker skin it had in the previous version. Is there any way to change these colors in the program? Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Hello Mark,

I'm sorry but there is no way to change the UI color of X-Lite. It has been designed this way. What I can do is convert your topic to an Idea topic to which our engineers go through frequently. If enough users give a thumbs up to this concern then engineering may change it. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Cheers,

Harpreet Singh

Thanks for the quick feedback and for moving it over to the ideas forum. It's not really a big problem I was shocked to see a color change for no apparent reason. I had gotten so used to the other color scheme the new one is rather shocking.

Thanks again,

Mark

что с темой. очень плохой цвет. Windows 10 темный цвет, а x-lite светлый. Гамно, а не тема. удаляю новую версию и ставлю прошлую. Разработчики что вы там курите?

That with the theme. Very bad color. Windows 10 is a dark color, and x-lite is light. Gamna, not the topic. Delete the new version and put the past. Developers that you smoke there?

Hi guys, after the latest (Aug'17) updates the new interface color is BLINDING! You can imagine for people spending their entire day in from of the monitor it may have a negative impact on their eyesight. Besides of the harm it may cause, it just doesn't look right, like something that is not quite finished, or someone forgot to do something here. How can it be reversed to the previous version? Is there a downgrade link somewhere?

Thank you all for the feedback. When we brought out Bria 4 we had many comments about our darker theme. Color is a subjective thing, but the lighter theme has had good response overall.

Please keep the feedback coming.

You are absolutely right about the color preferences. But it is not Bria, which I guess the android version; the comments above are for x-lite installed on Windows OS; the theme is not lighter - it is white.

Can you recommend the link for the earlier version please?

Olga, X-lite is the trial version of Bria. There isn't a link to the older versions from us as we keep updating X-lite.

We want people to have the best Softphone we can give them to try, which in turn hopefully results in people deciding that its worth paying for the paid version of the app.

Brian, thank you for clarifying this; since it is a free version nothing to complain about, just the feedback; hopefully the next update will bring a new color. Clean & simple doesn't have to be white.

On my Windows 10 the theme is really too bright, even blinding. Just add the possibility to set the background/foreground color by yourself in the next release. That would be perfect. Thank you.

The new look is way too bright for me on macOS 10.12 as well. Really don't like it at all. I wondered if upgrading to the paid Bria might offer a dark mode or a choice of themes, but I see looking at the other support topics that Bria now has a bright interface too. So count me as one more who'd like the option of a darker interface.

Same here. I just uninstalled X-Lite beacuse of its lack to follow my overall dark color theme.

It's Blindng, it hurts my eyes.

Windows 10 offers a choice to use dark or light as general theme option.

What about using that to decide what color schema to use?

This way you just need to add a couple of lines of code. No complex extra dialog needed to let the user configure the colors himself.

The new Skype does it that way too....

Simple and clean does NOT neccessarily means BLINDING WHITE!
