Customising the Power Apps Maker top bar

    Hi,
    Is there a way to customise the colour of the top bar in the Power Apps Maker for each environment?  Its so easy to forget to check which environment you are in so there is a possibility you end up making changes in the wrong environment.


    Thanks,

    Unfortunately not.
    I've asked the product team at MS to respect the theme we have in the Dataverse environment for exactly this reason, but it has not happened yet.

    I hadn't really though about that issue in the maker environment and have just been trying to be diligent about looking at the environment as soon as I go in.  Before the maker environment and before we could customize themes, the way I would make sure I was always in the right environment was to have shortcuts on my favorites bar for my DEV and TST environments while I kept PRD under my favorites menu so I was less likely to accidentally go into PRD when I was going to make changes and I was more conscious of my intent for switching environments by clicking the appropriate favorite.  I just tested and found that if you create a favorite while in each environment, the URLs are different so you could choose to always navigate to the environment in which you want to work by clicking a favorite.

    I love this idea. @Jonas Rapp or @Mark Aston maybe it's worth creating a post on the D365 "Ideas" site​​​​? If you do, please post the URL here. I'll vote for it. I do what Jill described with shortcuts, but sometimes you need to open both and it's WAY too easy to get mixed up.

    Couldn't find any existing after a quick search, so I created this:
    Make make.powerapps.com respect theme defined for environment
