Custom Theme (QS Feb'2018) doesn't work

Hello,

I've created a simple Custom Theme according to help (https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense-developer/February2018/Subsystems/Extensions/Content/custom-themes...) and installed it as an extension into my Qlik Sense Enterprise.

It appears in the Theme combo of the app configuration but when a try to select it doesn't do anything.

Has anybody know how to make custom themes work?

Thanks!

Ariel

Re: Custom Theme (QS Feb'2018) doesn't work

Hi Erik,

The json file has correct syntax since I tested with the script from the Qlik Sense Help.

Now I checked the browser console for errors and effectively, I'm getting the 404 error. I noticed that "theme.json" is required (a json file with the "theme" name). I looked back to Help and indeed, this is required.

So I changed it and now it works!

Thanks,

Ariel

Re: Custom Theme (QS Feb'2018) doesn't work

Hi,

I have Qlik Sense Desktop April 2018, and I'm not being able to use themes (I used to in previous versions). I have two files in my theme folder:

theme.css

theme.json

Any idea on what might be happening?

Thanks

Re: Custom Theme (QS Feb'2018) doesn't work

I'm seeing that this version (and I believe that since February) handles themes differently.

I've created a folder in C:\Users\MyUser\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions\Montreal and there I've placed a qext, json and a css. My custom theme, called Montreal, is becoming available when editing the app, but it doesn't do anything when selected.
