This option allows you to choose between “Classic, classic-large, material” and “material-large” themes. The “theme1” and “theme2”,  will display the icons of the “Classic” theme, but the colours of the grids will be different. You may also add your own favourite background pictures.

By default, TurboCASH5 will install in the "material" theme.

Classic-large theme is also implemented in TurboCASH5. This is based on the Classic theme and displays the grids and data in larger fonts - this feature is intended for large screens. 

Material-large theme is also implemented in TurboCASH5. This is based on the Material theme and displays the grids and data in larger fonts - this feature is intended for large screens. 

Experiment by selecting different themes until you find the one you like. 

For most of these themes, the icons on the ribbons and screens will also change to blend with the selected theme. 

If another Set of Books is opened, the theme that was selected in that Set of Books is displayed.

The “material” theme is used for screen captures in this documentation.

You may change the default Background1.jpg with your own image (photo, logo, products), etc.

You may change the font to any required size and or set the colours of the grids. To do this, it is recommended that you make a copy of the "classic-large"; or "material-large" folder and rename it. 

The "colors.ini" file in the " ...\bin\Themes\classic" and "classic-large" folders (or "material" and "material-large" folders, is as follows:
