Hey Brett -
It's been a while since I've tried to change these, but for some reason my theme doesn't seem to want to change/update. I swear I had some custom themes downloaded but saw none loaded. I downloaded a few new one's and still won't reflect the change. I did notice that if I try to edit the CSS that nothing appears (since its additional cant remember if i would see the overall CSS) so what I am seeing is likely using a fallback all the time?

I've tried deleting and reinstalling and looked at my macos security preferences. If I go to the custom style and reveal, I do see the custom style present and can open the CSS in another editor.

Please let me know what else i could check to figure out what is going on.

    Hey Brett - Sorry if this was a totally idiot thread (ID-10-T or PEBKAC). I figured when I selected the theme in preferences and hit "refresh" it would update my document to the new theme setting. On the open file itself, I noticed in the status bar that the theme remained static. I was able to toggle the theme setting there and it does infact change. Any new documents appear to open with the last selected setting.

    I am not sure if this is the expected behavior, but at least I know how to get it to work and don't suspect I will have a high frequency theme change rate.

    Hey Nick,

    The theme setting in preferences determines your default theme, i.e. the
    one that new documents will open with by default. The status bar menu
    only affects the current document while it's open, and can be changed
    using shortcut keys. This is expected behavior.
