Well, yes, either through a Qt style-sheet (they may need updates though!), or through qtconfig and disabling the 'Standard color palette' option in QMC2 (see wiki).

The 'qtconfig' solution wouldn't work for you since the tool is not included in the official Win32 package, but I will add that with the next update...

At the very least I can offer a download link to the tool in the meantime, but I'm currently not at my dev-system, so I don't have access to my Qt build tree right now smile.

Well, I tried qtconfig on Windows... wasn't aware that it's actually not supported (not even built) on that platform, but I was able to patch it in order to get the binary on Windows... however, the result is not very promising.

So I recommend to use a style-sheet instead. If you don't like my examples from http://qmc2.arcadehits.net/wordpress/style-sheets/ you could easily change them to your needs... it's not very complicated (see Qt style-sheet documentation), similar to CSS for HTML, but it's a bit of work to make it "good" (not that I made good ones myself, they are more like experiments wink ).

Think I should add a palette-editor to QMC2's TODO list, though smile.

I've actually started working on this... but it will take a bit until it's complete wink.

Now that's it's working, here's a screen shot of the new feature in action:
