Hey, just want to reference another forum post describing a bug with UI artifacts on the panel positions and any initial resizing of these.
https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=64942

There is also an issue filed on the GitHub repo: https://github.com/turn211/ProDark-Free ... /issues/11

just off the single screenshot:

1. highlighted objects are unreadable.
2. icons are hard to see.
3. tool icon separators are hard to see.

The dark hard to see icons come from your system icon theme, try switching to another theme or check the instructions in Fine-tuning to force freecad to use the built-in icons. The active container color is not controlled by the stylesheet though, you need to change that color in FreeCAD's preference page. I agree that withish color is not a good default though, could be something to improve.

these separators could be made to a more visible color like this other handle or the same color as the box outline accents:

+1 on that
I am using Pro Dark Vertical UI, but the issue is (I believe) common to all the dark schemes:

Thank you!
Just tried and it works perfectly OK with appimage :)

Struggling with snap version though :oops:
copied ProdDark.qss to /home/username/snap/freecad-realthunder/common/.FreeCAD/Gui/Stylesheets/
and for some reason (probably to do with snap?) it just doesn't work.... :roll:

Could you PR that into the main repo? @uwestoehr can we get this merged before release? the theme is broken right now and merging it can't break anything else
