Highlights-Dark icon theme for Calibre

I've used the Highlights theme, designed by Nicolas F, for a while now. I tend to use dark themes on my machine, however, and the icons are not very visible with a dark UI.

So I went in and created a version of the Highlights icons for dark themes (mainly replacing dark gray with light gray). After consulting with Kovid and Nicolas, I want to make this variant available for everyone.

Click image for larger version

Name:	icon-theme-cover.jpg
Views:	89
Size:	60.0 KB
ID:	172108

Since these icons are derivatives of the Highlights set, I imagine they fall under the same license terms: Google icons are under the CC BY 4.0 license and Austin Andrews icons are under the SIL Open Font License 1.1

Enjoy!

Edit 12/15/2019 - Uploaded a new version of the theme. The default news icon is now the blue version, the gray news icon is included in the the calibre images folder (under AppData/Roaming in windows) as news2.png. You can replace the news icon by renaming the files and restarting calibre. There are a few new icons in calibre that my theme is missing, I will be adding these in the next version.
Attached Files
File Type: zip highlights-dark.zip (500.8 KB, 0 views)

If you want the theme to be downloadable in calibre, run the Create icon theme in Preferences->Miscellaneous and upload the result.

This is nice! If Calibre ever works with macOS' dark mode I'll definitely use this.

Glad to see some interest in this. Just FYI, this uses the light gray icon for news, you can still replace it with the blue one from the main Highlights icon theme thread. I'll add a note to the main post.

I was using this theme, but now I can't select it anymore. I can select any theme but this one. I am getting this error:

I've cleared the resources/image folder, but didn't work. Also, uninstalled and reinstalled calibre.

What could this be?
