Rich text feature request: https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/VWR-7467

At the very least we would have to add a different asset type because formatting would confuse scripts

I'm still waiting on a checkbox to turn on/off monospace font in notecards...

I'd be nice to have a checkbox to turn on/off a dark mode as well as that white background is pretty harsh.

Would be much easier to add a few colors in the colors.xml, hook it up to a color picker in the UI somewhere via XML editing and change the notecard text editor to use these colors. Then you can create your own dark mode. All of this can be done without having the recompile the Viewer and works in all Viewers.

Make it so. 🙂

Then submit it to LL and pray they don't cherrypick/bork it...

You can have the Notecard Editor themed in the same colors as your script editor.

Open your client installation directory and locate the following file /skins/default/xui/en/floater_preview_notecard.xml

Find this part of code

    <text_editor
     type="string"
     length="1"
     embedded_items="true"
     follows="left|top|right|bottom"
     font="SansSerif"
     height="281"
     ignore_tab="false"
     layout="topleft"
     left="4"
     max_length="65536"
     name="Notecard Editor"
     parse_urls="false" 
     spellcheck="true"
     tab_group="1"
     top="46"
     width="392"
     word_wrap="true">
        Loading...
    </text_editor>

replace it withe the code exactly as shown below

    <text_editor
     type="string"
     length="1"
     embedded_items="true"
     follows="left|top|right|bottom"
     font="SansSerif"
     height="281"
     ignore_tab="false"
     layout="topleft"
     left="4"
     max_length="65536"
     name="Notecard Editor"
     text_color="ScriptText"
     default_color="ScriptText"
     bg_writeable_color="ScriptBackground"
     bg_focus_color="ScriptBackground"
     text_readonly_color="ScriptText"
     bg_readonly_color="ScriptBackground"
     bg_selected_color="ScriptSelectedColor"
     cursor_color="ScriptCursorColor"
     parse_urls="false" 
     spellcheck="true"
     tab_group="1"
     top="46"
     width="392"
     word_wrap="true">
        Loading...
    </text_editor>

Log in and theme both in the way you like.

@Nick0678, I see you use Arch. But I've noticed something else about that screenshot that I can't quite put my finger on..... KDE Plasma? 🤣

Ok, seriously, I have never seen the Relentless viewer before. Is it going to be available for any Linux distro?

Nah not KDE , it's XFCE and actually on Ubuntu not Arch,  i just also use the same xfce theme with my other laptop that has XFCE/Arch.

Regarding the viewer, it's not a priority and not finished either, worked on it while we had covid lockdown so i had plenty of time, maybe in the future.

Well, cool viewer skin! I just distro hopped to Pop_OS (Ubuntu 20.04) to see how their tiling extension fits my workflow. So far, it's alright.
