Examples of this theme

Below we show two examples of this theme, one running modern in dark mode, and one running modern in traditional mode.

TcMenu ships with four color themes, a cool blue theme and a dark mode theme revolving around black and dark grey. Each color scheme has a traditional mode aimed at smaller resolutions, and a modern theme designed for larger fonts, with more spacing between elements.

There is quite a bit of configurability around the theme, with the main parameters being the title and item font, along with the padding around the title, and the spacing between items. The title can be set to always display, display as if it were a menu item, or never display. You can choose to turn off the traditional active / edit icons on the left side, and also decide if analog items should use sliders by default (EG look like a percentage bar).

These plugins will add a theme file to your sketch, which once generated will not be touched again by designer. So that you can edit it to meet your needs. Should you wish to regenerate the file, delete it and then it will be regenerated.

Here is the full documentation of how tcMenu rendering works. Toward the bottom of that article is a complete section on how the theme based rendering works.
