UI: NX Theme, which one do you prefer

Creator

Hello,

 

I'm working with NX 19 Years ago. Since Unigraphics V15.
So I've seen some different UI's in all the time. Some things are now better, some not.

 

 

Which of the NX Thems for the UI do you prefer?

The pictures her are captured from NX1847.

Since the "Light (Recommended)" is appeared much people work with them.

But I'm not satisfied with that. It has too little contrast, and anityhng is in white to light gray.
And with the Windows 10 (2 Dimensional?!?) design, it's much difficult to see where a window begins and ends.

The "Light Gray" is'nt really an alternative for me. Looks as the same, but gray in gray.

My Favorite: "Classic with System Fonts"
It gives good contrasts, particular in CAM menues.I see much more better where windofs begins and ends.
Why "with System Fonts? Well, the characters are a bit narrow, so there I can se more of them in the input fields.
Yes, I like it.

An then the "System" theme. It looks not bad, but I don't like it. There are no lines in the ONT.
The only interresting thing is the red or blue arrows for collapsed/uncollapsed parts of menues.

Why am I talking here about that?
I'm afraid, in future the different themes will desappear. Then ther is only one unit theme and maybe
it's not my preferred theme.
 
What is your opinion?

TomS

Until a couple weeks ago, I never changed the theme, and only then because of the discussion on the NX1847 icon colors.  Since UG v8, I've just used whatever the default was.

Since about NX 5 (pretty sure that was the version I started on) I have used the Light - recommended theme.

@BenBroad, I'm guessing UG v16.

@BenBroad,

Back then grayscale icons meant not selectable. Look how far we've come (sarcasm). Heh heh.

TomS,
I agree with you. I do not like the Windows10 -2D appearance.
Every n-th year a new batch of engineers/designers/programmers/whatever takes the scene and says :
"Look at this ! this new scheme is way revolutionary!"
and for some unknown reason we let these guys have their way when really we should build on what we have learnt before.

Regards,
Tomas
