Saving preferences do not save new colors into current/selected Theme
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

It is not intuitive behavior, when I should make all tweaks (unsaved?) and only then Create new theme, that will save em all.
I need button like «Overwrite theme» or switch: «Do you want to save in general or overwrite theme»…
Or something pretty clear to understand without reading manual.

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) triaged this task as Needs Information from User priority.

You need to be a bit more specific.

I can't reproduce this when I changed some node editor colors.
The changes were saved for me when without any issues.

Changes are saved in the userpref.blend file, not in the preset. When you select a preset the changes you have made are reset.

Select "Dark Theme", change it and save. Selected "Dark Theme" preset itself remains unchanged.

That's how it is intended to work. If you feel like you have a good idea how this should work instead, you can post your idea over at: https://blender.community/c/rightclickselect/
