Adding or modifying a preset gradient

Rather than add a new gradient switch to FlightDeck, it is easier to modify the stylesheet for a theme preset you don't like.

In this example we'll modify the "Pacific Dream" stylesheet.

  1. In FlightDeck, select the Pacific_Dream preset

  2. The colour definitions are stored in:

  3. Modify the colour and gradient values as desired

We recommend using a CSS3 gradient generator such as to automatically generate new code for your own gradient.

Some custom presets might cause the footer links to blend into the background. This can be remedied by enabling the "High contrast footer links" option in FlightDeck.
