Description

The UI revamp in current master (darktable 1.0+829~g5c0a55e) is great, but drop down lists are grey on grey with no discernible features. One can only guess and try whether there is a drop down list.

I think a little outlining and possibly a darker grey downarrow/triangle wil make it easier for people to recognise that there are more options available.

Also, it is hard, if at all, possible to see where the keyboard focus is at any given time. E.g.: in the confirmation dialogue for deleting images: Which button will be pressed if I just hit the [space bar] or [return]?

A little more contrast will be very useful for both items.

This is a GTK theme issue, right?

Hi Richard,

indeed this is a problem right now. But at the moment the focus lies on a consistent implementation of the Bauhaus widgets into the module UI. After finishing the portage of all of them into this unified layout it will be very easy to change such things.

Therefore: don't consider the layout as finished but "work in progress". Especially this problem is known to Johannes, who's working on Bauhaus integration.

Okay, cool. Not complaining about it. I am running git master, so I'm aware that stuff is work in progress. :-)

There have been a few changes to the drop down lists since this bug was filed. Is it still a problem? For me they work now, but maybe I just got used to the bauhaus widgets. :)
