With Dark themes editing a Swing UI in Matisse changes colors quite wildly when clicking around in the design mode. An example is attached.

AnagramGame's in Matisse

This example shows AnagramGame sample's About dialog in design mode.

Can the overall fix for matisse be to not apply any dark colors to whatever UI is opened/created in the design mode?

Comment 3 Stanislav Aubrecht 2013-03-20 09:04:20 UTC
I fixed the hardcoded colors of resizing hints in core-main 45d4615ecdd1

However the second problem is that .form file cache some colors so after switching look and feel the form may render incorrectly if Swing/AWT palette colors are used.
Reassigning to form editor module.

I don't understand the last comment about colors in the .form file and switching look and feels, sorry. Can you provide step by step description? Thanks.

Never mind, I can't reproduce the second part of this issue anyway.
