@ads20000 The theme uses orange now mostly as lines or dots. The color is very attention-grabbing and does not need bigger orange fields. That is why it looks so elegant at the moment. The orange is used for “activated” or “selected” states while blue is used to show progress (progressbar) or for sliders (volumeslider). The text-selection-color was changed to blue too because it looked more like salmon or even pink on some displays. And because unity 8 used blue too. I understand that it can be confusing because the orange is still used in libreoffice and icon-selection while on firefox or gedit blue is used.
IMHO selection-color for content should be blue everywhere. That means selected text or even selected files. Selection-color for the system should be orange. That means when parts of the system are selected or activated (in stackswitcher, sidebar or topbar). This way it would be consistent and comprehensibly.
The makers of the theme will test and check what needs to be changed. So lets see what the future brings.
I think so too. It would be nice when this made possible.
You mean the close-button? On my system it is on the right. I share with you the same opinion. It looks a bit odd at the moment when hover. I would recommend to make the X orange on hover. This way it looks (at least for me) more consistent with the rest of the theme:
But at the moment there are no plans to change the close-button. But i am pretty sure a change will come.
