The Manage Themes dialog may be used to modify themes, create new themes, delete themes, and import/export (open and save) themes. The Manage Themes dialog has three major sections: Application, Editor, and Syntax. The top row of controls are present when any of the three tabs are selected.
The Theme dropdown allows users to select themes which have already been specified. By default, themes are stored in the %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\themes folder and have a .uetheme extension. The four buttons in the top row of controls support the following features:
Add new/existing theme
If Add new theme is selected from the Add theme submenu, this presents a New Theme dialog where users may specify the name of the new theme as well as an existing theme whose settings will be used as a basis for the new theme to be defined. By default, the currently active theme will be automatically selected. When the users clicks OK, the new theme will be created and will be made active in the Theme dropdown and the user may begin modifying the associated settings.
If Add existing theme is selected, this will open a file browser dialog where the user may select an existing theme file. The selected theme will then be copied to the user's themes directory and the Theme dropdown will automatically switch to the newly imported theme. The active theme will not actually be changed until Apply or OK is pressed.
