Changing the window color theme

You can change the color theme used throughout Dorico Elements, for example, you might switch to the light theme if you prefer to read dark text on a light background. By default, Dorico Elements uses the dark theme, which shows light text on a dark background.

  2. Click General in the category list.
  3. In the Window section, select one of the following options from the Theme menu:
    • Dark

    • Light

  4. Click Apply, then Close.


The color theme used in Dorico Elements is changed. This affects the current project immediately and all future projects you open, until you next change your setting.
