Overlay buttons are all dark blue

The overlay buttons used to match the app colors chosen under “brand”. Now all of them are dark blue no matter what color I’ve chosen. It looks awful and it seems there is no way to change it. Anyone else seeing this in their apps? When I contacted support it sounds like it was intentional.

I noticed this today too. Actually, I took the screenshot on the left to report an unrelated bug: Sometimes on my iPhone, when I use the background sync function the red line fails to disappear, even if I tap on the sync icon and wait for the sync to finish. When I took the screenshot on the left my plan was to close the app and reboot it to get the red line to go away. That’s when I noticed the color change (middle screenshot). I prefer the old color but I find it to be particularly objectionable in the third screenshot where the inconsistency of the color scheme is most obvious.

By the way, even if the entire color scheme were to be adjusted so that everything had the new dark blue color, that would be a problem for me because I made my own “branding” images that use the same (old) color. I would prefer not to have to redo them. I think the old color is fine and that, in a case like this, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

About the possibility of changes to everything being the new dark blue, I’m with you. In some of my apps, the app icons I’ve made in photoshop all follow the color scheme I’ve chosen for the app. You can see that in my screenshot too. I’m really hoping this is temporary and just needs to be fixed. I love AppSheet, but if removing custom colors is a permanent change I’ll be quite disappointed as it takes away from the appeal of designing our apps.

Yep, same thing with my apps. I’m assuming/hoping this is a bug related to a rollout to be able to format the color of overlay actions because that would be amazing and very Material design.

I had the same thought! I know it’s been requested a lot so that would be nice!

Agreed, this looks awful! I really hope this gets fixed soon.

Facing the same issue in all my apps.

I have the same problem. How can I fix it?
Thanks

Just received this email from support “Hi, thanks for reporting it. This was an unintended side effect of a change that has now been rolled back, so the buttons should again respect the theme color. If the problem persists please let us know.”

I just checked and my apps are back to normal!

Thank you very much for the quick turnaround :+1:

My buttons are back to yellow but the plus sign is dropping out of the circle and the search box is still dark blue.
