#Solarized Toggle

##Introduction Solarized Toggle is a very simple plugin originally written to allow users of Sublime Text 2 and Sublime Text 3 to easily switch between light and dark versions of the Solarized color scheme.

Now any color scheme included with Sublime Text or installed separately can be used with a change to the plugin's settings file. The font settings can also be toggled between the differnt modes. You can also choose to use the built in theme switcher to toggle between two different themes at the same time.

Why use this plugin? Instead of having to manually click Preferences->Color Scheme->Some Colors, you can simply press F12 (CMD+F12 on OSX, Control+F12 on Linux) in order to toggle between two themes. If you enable the theme switcher, you can also easily toggle between themes that compliment your color schemes.

  • This plugin will overwrite the following settings in your Preferences.sublime-settings (USER) file:
    • color_scheme
    • font_face, font_size, font_options, (if font switching is enabled)
    • theme (if theme switching is enabled)
  • Prior to Sublime Text 3 build 3114, there is an issue with the theme switcher for both Sublime Text 2 and 3 where the window sometimes does not update the entire theme, leaving some artifacts of the previous theme behind. This is a limitation of Sublime Text itself. To fix the issue, simply resize or minimize/restore your window. This will cause the window to redraw itself with the new theme. Upgrading to a version starting with Sublime Text 3 build 3114 will also fix this problem.
