SecureCRT Theme


I saw today that a colleague at a different location had a dark theme.
Unfortunately the colleague was not at his workplace any more, so i unfortunately could not ask how he got his complete SecureCRT so dark.

To style the secure shell window is nothing new, but he colored his "Session Manager" and so on also.
But how?
I don't find any settings....
Same like here:

Thanks for help

Hello sudo,

Here are the settings you need to make SecureCRT look like the screenshot:

Theme: VS2013 Dark (chosen from View menu)

Tab options (Terminal / Tabs/Tiling category in Global Options dialog):
- Show status indicators as background colors
- Tab location: Bottom

Sorry, I generally meant a dark theme.
Have a bright/light (standard) theme, but do not see any setting to color the whole program into a dark one.

Many Thanks.

/edit: i've found it
VIEW -> Themes

Hi venturevoip,

SecureCRT on Mac does not currently support the use of Themes.

I have recorded your interest in our database of SecureCRT feature requests so that the product director can evaluate it for possible inclusion in a future release.

Should a version of SecureCRT become available with this feature, we will be sure to let you know. If you would like to be notified directly please send an email to Support@VanDyke.com with "Feature Request Forum Post 12681" in the subject line.
