    I just installed Darkest Dark and I love it! It really looks great. So easy and pleasing for the eyes! Unfortunately there are some problems.

    I use Eclipse IDE mainly for writing PHP code. Shortcuts are of great help. I use quite often Ctrl+Shift+M for searching for the functions I have stored in different files. After installing Darkest Dark this shortcut stopped working. More than that after I hit Ctrl+Shift+M I am not even able to close the IDE as it just hangs displaying a popup with the message ”Operation in progress…” that never goes away. In order to close the IDE I must go to the Windows Task Manger and force the termination of Eclipse IDE from there.

    OS: Win 7
    IDE: Eclipse Neon 4.6.3

    vital-soft,

    Thank you for trying Darkest Dark and for your wonderful compliments.
    Sorry that you are seeing problems with the shortcut. I could replicate the problem at my end.

    A bug is filed for the dev team to investigate further. We will keep you posted about the fix schedule.

    Apologies for inconvenience caused. Please let us know if you see any other issues with Darkest Dark.

    @vital-soft, Do you have the “icons designer” view open anywhere in your UI? If you do the easiest workaround would be to close it as this is a known issue: Shortcut conflicting with our icons designer shortcuts. We have placed a fix for this that will be available in our next release (CI9).

    Cheers!

    ”Do you have the “icons designer” view open anywhere in your UI?”

    No, I don’t. I wasn’t even aware of its presence. Icon Designer is of no use to me. I am mainly a PHP programmer. Occasionally I write JavaScript and CSS code. Anyway if this is what is causing conflicts with my PHP shortcuts I would like to get rid of Icons Designer altogether. I looked through the list of available views and I a saw it listed here: Window -> Show view -> other -> Darkest Dark -> Icon Designer. Is there a way to uninstall Icons Designer without affecting Darkest Dark Theme?

    Meanwhile I tried Darkest Dark installed in the Oxygen release (ver. 4.7.1a). The Ctrl+Shift+M shortcut fails to work there as well (I mean in PHP editor). Fortunately the IDE does not hang anymore.

    Sorry, noticed I didn’t answer you question. If you want to uninstall the Icon Designer one way to do it is going to Help > About Eclipse… Then clicking “Installation Details”. Look for the Icon Designer in the Installed Software Tab and selec it, then click Uninstall…
    It should uninstall it wihout uninstalling the Darkest Dark theme.

    Cheers!
