I just applied one of these themes: How can I set a dark theme in TeXstudio?

How can I switch back to the stock theme?

    Have you tried deleting the .texsprofile file? Be sure to make a backup copy! – Bordaigorl Nov 13 '14 at 15:58
  • Yes, I hadn't had one, so I created one for the dark theme, applied it and then after deleted the dark theme, but I still have the theme applied in TexStudio ... – GrayGhost93 Nov 13 '14 at 16:06
  • Delete the offending lines from your .texprofile file, then close and relaunch TeXStudio? Those settings get applied when the app is starting. – jub0bs Nov 13 '14 at 16:19
  • I allready created an empty file and applied it. A restart didn't worked. – GrayGhost93 Nov 13 '14 at 16:23
  • Have you tried to change either "style" or "color" in "Options / Configure TeXStudio / General" ? That should bring back the default settings. – blue_tiger300 Nov 13 '14 at 17:33

The default settings are built in. They apply if no changes are made to the respective format. Format changes are part of the general settings in texstudio.ini.

To remove all changed formats, simply delete the section [formats] in texstudio.ini (Make sure TXS are closed while you do so, otherwise your modifications won't take effect and will be overwritten when TXS closes).

  • Any plans for a built-in dark theme, like in Texmaker? According to your issue tracker, such a feature is low on your priority list, but this question has been viewed close to 8k times, which seems to indicate a strong interest in a built-in dark theme... – jub0bs Nov 13 '14 at 19:21
  • Thanks for the help. Worked very well :) I agree with Jubobs, a build in dark-theme would be very very nice and also helpful. – GrayGhost93 Nov 14 '14 at 7:37
