So I just want to know is the project dead, should I move on to some other software?
Not dead see recent commits just no one offering to add more features at present
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:
