Post by dcapeletti » Sat Feb 15, 2020 12:56 pm

@OficineRobotica perhaps you can make a follow up video linked to from the above clip explaining that this workaround and bug is not necessary anymore ?

No need for that ATM as this issue wasn't affecting Glass module and in addition i noticed most people using Glass module do basically want to use the Tree dock widget and not the Combo one and want to change the color of the text from black to white.

Therefore, likely April, i will just change the defaults.

Sorry for the silence lately. I live in Italy and most of all I work in food retail and due to the national emergency/lock down I face shuttering work shifts so allot of my side projects have been postponed. From a fast read I haven't undesrtood if the PR is related to the glass module or to address the lost of the user set style sheet preference. I would like to make a follow up video with both the glass module new defaults and the PR concerning the style sheet but if that isn't possible I'll make a video about whatever comes first. Cheers to everyone and stay safe.

That's intense. Stay well, my friend.
