Question: Why no custom Canvas color

For some of the users with eye problems like me, the white canvas is burning eyes out of sockets as the monitor needs to be close up. Even turning down the intensity do not work especially since all other applications on Linux can be configured to have a dark-theme, but NOT Maple it seems.

What is the reason for this resistance from Maple Developers to just ram this white canvas down our throats verion after version.

Users have been asking since about Maple 11 to change  this.

I mean, Maple is not exactly cheap, which would have been an excuse, and is formidable intellectual software, so "ability" should not be a problem

However am I to believe that just changing the canvas color, turns out to be  a serious intellectual challenge for developers ?

Google yields such custom canvas request spanning more than a decade, but users arrive at crickets and a dead end.

Please be kind and give us a customizable canvas or any DARK theme of your choice for users with visual challenges and the lots of normal users who also want a custom canvas color or dark theme. It is overdue.

At the moment I use the cumbersome table-solution with a gray background, which helps some, but it is clunky and no alternative for long term use as the window and bars itself are still white and distracts and defeats the objective somewhat.

Please Wait...
