Hi David(s),


David Carlson,

Did you see https://bugs.gnucash.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797493#c4 which mentions themes?

I tested this in Windows 10 and could not duplicate it.


I did duplicate this problem in Ubuntu 20.04 and found a couple of work-arounds.

Please see




Chris Good

I did not see anything about themes in that bug report https://bugs.gnucash.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797493 except in a reference to another bug report where the user admitted to choosing a non-standard desktop theme.  I did see the problem myself briefly recently but now I forgot when.  I suspect that I may have seen it on Windows rather than Linux.  Tht referenced bug report stated that when the user switched to the Adwaita theme (which, IIRC, is the default theme for several Linux desktops) the problem disappeared.  Thus IMHO the theme concern does not apply to 797493


I don't change desktop themes often, if ever or themes for GnuCash, I leave it as 'out of the box', and I believe if David Pickett did too, then I think it is a GnuCash bug
