I use FocusWriter as my prefered distraction free writing editor. I installed it using the developer's ppa:gottcode/gcppa ppa. Being a Qt application, by default FocusWriter does not use the elementary OS's theming.

FocusWriter menu

Are there any recommendations how to better integrate FocusWriter into the elementary OS design?

  • I don't think that's possible.

  • +1 Don't think it is possible, however you can try using Uberwriter, which, in my opinion, is even more feature packed than FocusWriter.

    @Luís Unfortunately Uberwriter has not been updated since 2013.
