8 I do like the Grey. In the dark version the navigation bar on the left is not even. There's some strange shine in it.

Not sure if this is a bug: the glow border now exists on all windows, focused or unfocused. Is it intentional? I think it would be better if only the window in focus has the glowing border.

Yes, it's a bug. Fixed in 2.0.1. Let me know if there are still problems in some cases.

In 2.01, the flow border is fixed (ie. only the window in focus has this glow border). However, the jumpy bug is back. Switching to another window make it shaked a bit. Also not all app has that glowing border (VScode, Firefox, Slack, IntelliJ, Ubuntu Updater, Audacious). As I mentioned in my previous message, the 2x version seems to overload too much on graphics effects (3D gradient, transparency, blue outline on drop down, glow around buttons)

In 2.0.5 the jumpy bug when switching to another window should be fixed. Gradients, transparencies, blue outline and buttons glow were removed between 2.0.1 and 2.0.5. Still working on glowing border on all app.

Version 2.0.0:

POSITIVE:

- The brighter glow border is better
- Fixed the jumpy window when changing window focus.
- WIndow control buttons +-X look nicer

NEGATIVE:

1) I think the glow around the topbar buttons are overdone. Sometimes too much of a good thing brings the opposite effects.

2) The thin blue line around border or boxes was better when it was gray. You can compare a setting dialog between GTK2 app (like Audacious) there is no blue line highlight, I find this looks calmer.

3) The 3D gradient on the left pane (Gnome Tweaks, Gnome Files) is probably un-necessary

4) The gray background is slightly transparent (Gnome Tweaks, Gnome Files). Maybe there is an aesthetic purpose, but from my point of view, the transparency is counter productive. I have some troubles to read the content of the window in focus when it mixes with the irrelevant content which is supposed to be hidden in the background.

This would look awesome IF it weren't that ugly dark grey, and the borders were a bit brighter. Suggestion: make the background dark blue or cyan (hex:- #00xxxx, for example), and the borders a light blue or cyan.

Just saw a theme with a red close button. Look at the version on the right (Cloudy Dark Blue): https://cdn.pling.com/img/8/2/a/9/aaecc74e46a6c276774ff77eb9fb5bd4f177baba304d28c484fbbe0fcd7ab90da67f.png

If you think this looks good, can you do the same?

v1.0.10: GTK2 looks perfect! Hope you would consider this request: Make the close button red, only for the window in focus. For GTK3 and GTK2.

This is debatable, but here is my rationale. Because this make the window in focus stand out better. It is up to you to choose the red tint, normal and mouse-over, for that "close" button.

BTW, not sure if this is a bug, but the close button on this theme looks different with the Gnome Terminal app. Is it the theme or Gnome? https://imgur.com/N7CtP7J

I see those red close buttons already exist (light red on mouse over and darker red when mouse click). Can you try to make the darker red permanent to see how this would look like?

10 This Breeze Dark mod is gorgeous. The glow border around the window in focus is genius. The topbar with a different color is also very good. All the changes you made are better than the original. Kudos.

Suggestion to make it even better. Here are the areas I think need improvements:

- Add GTK2 support (the original Breeze-dark is clearly better here)

- Differentiate the tone of gray backgrounds for left/right panes in windows having a left pane with selectable items and right pane showing the content. Example of apps: Files, Gnome Tweaks, Gnome Settings dialog. Maybe have a look at this for inspiration? https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1239855/

Additional improvement requets about titlebar/topbar
- Make it compact
- Lighter background color (of the bar itself). This would make it easier to select underneath windows when several windows overlap.

Hi thank you! Indeed I was looking for a thinner titlebar too. And yes, lighter background is better. Here it is (v. 1.0.7).
I will then study also your previous suggestions.

v1.07 is way better with that topbar! Good job. Thanks. Here is a screenshot showing you how a GTK2 app (Audacious) looks with OpenDesktop-dark vs the Marwaita theme : https://imgur.com/JDVRL0w
I hope the implementation for GTK2 support is not too much work.
