Hi,
It's been so long since the last update.
Sumtra pdf works good like always but
there are some features missing in sumtra like:

  1. Support for e-forms
  2. Morden look and feel
    3.Some customization options etc.

So I just want to know is the project dead, should I move on to some other software?

  1. Unknown if anyone would do such a thing, however I personally don't want automatic 3rd party phone home actions imbedded in this lightweight viewer that could then be used to monitor my usage .
  2. Can't get more modern than windows 10 imposed system colours and your choice of alternative icons here are mine what else is there to change ?

Not dead see recent commits just no one offering to add more features at present

  1. Ok
  2. Ok
    A Gui option to change themes, font and background colour can be very helpful.

Your reader looks a bit different from mine ,how?

The Windows system colours and fonts control the top two lines you can switch the settings to use sys colours but I usually end up switching it off as it can confuse me.

The Icons are inbuilt in toolbar_11.bmp which can be overridden by an external one in the same folder as SumatraPDF-settings.txt the default one is 208 x16 (208=13 x16) i.e. keep them square https://github.com/sumatrapdfreader/sumatrapdf/blob/master/src/toolbar_11.bmp

So if you want multiple themed icons keep them in separate sub folders each with a themed settings file and call each one via -appdata command

R,G,B (FF, 0, FF) in the .bmp image (are transparent in the toolbar) more details here #16 first old link is dead but the last example one is here https://gist.githubusercontent.com/gl-bars/7842c590e884dae8f17c/raw/6ac21f49ba83b454b9ff85fd8a2a5c6da0c19805/toolbar_11.bmp this one is bigger at 22 x 22 x 13 = 286 x 22

Draw your own BMP icons at a size to suit your age (I am old my icons are big) so the ones you see are 624 x 48 (note that multiples of 8 are usually best so 24x24 is good 32x32, 40x40 etc.) this helps with scaling if using screen as 125% > 150% > 175%.

Although the file MUST be called toolbar_11.bmp there are 13 icons numbered 0-12 (confusing :-)

NOTE the Open button is replaced with a "Save As" icon for Plugin mode:
0 OPEN ICON and this position is ALSO used for number 12 (SAVE COPY)
1 PRINT DIALOG
icon bar will split here for GOTO_PAGE box
2 GOTO_PREV_PAGE
3 GOTO_NEXT_PAGE
4 VIEW_FIT_WIDTH/Continuous
5 VIEW_FIT_PAGE/Single Page
6 VIEW_ZOOMOUT
7 VIEW_ZOOMIN
icon bar will split here for find box
8 FIND_PREV
9 FIND_NEXT
10 FIND_MATCH
11 reserved for a blanking icon
12 see note above this is the SAVE_AS icon for imbedded mode

Since, last release is 2016, do you have any plan to issue a new version?

@silenceleaf there is never a plan to issue a new version (see wiki) it is continuous minor updates (e.g. 3 fresh languages this week) until a significant improvement is added by others. So until that happens the current release is 3.1.2 or pre-release towards next.
