Why are you making such a big deal about a request many people seem to want? Lee Gordon's point is valid. If you don't care about Dark why bother to even join the conversation. If dark mode is added to Logos it does not take anything away and you can continue using it with the default color mode. Unless people were requesting that only dark mode be available then I would see your point, but that is not the request being made. Your argument is a waste of time.

The fact that you have made close to 30 thousand posts is very concerning and I had an experience with you in a previous post a few years ago. You always seem to be confrontational even when people ask honest questions. I had asked if it was possible to export Logos books to other readers and you quickly replied in a condescending way. Pointing me to copyright laws as if I was asking if I could do something illegal. Almost seems like you believe you own part of Faithlife.

Diego Lara:
Lee Gordon's point is valid.

So was MJ's.

Lee Gordon wrote, "It's easy on the eyes in low-light levels."

In truth, it is easy on some people's eyes in low-light levels. It is not easy on other people's eyes in low-light levels. (One of those people is MJ.)

MJ pays careful attention to the words that she and others use, so she both notices and dislikes absolute general statements that are false more than many other people do. It probably doesn't help that Lee Gordon's well-meant and unintentionally false statement was partly about her, insofar as she is a person with eyes--eyes that do not benefit from Dark Mode.

I, for one, like Dark Mode in principle, and I do use it for some programs. I find it takes some getting used to. That said, if Logos/Verbum 8 had Dark Mode, I'd definitely be running Verbum 8 with Dark Mode right now.

MJ. Smith:
I'm just asking that the people who love dark mode acknowledge that their view is not the only view just as those of us who dislike it acknowledge that there are those who love it.

Concur Dark Mode is an individual preference choice (available on Smart Phones, Windows, macOS, ...). Dark Mode needs High Contrast for readability: similar colors (lacking contrast) are hard to read in Light OR Dark Mode.

FYI: for awhile, GMAIL app on iOS 13 only showed Light Mode (even thought iOS was configured Dark). With eyes adjusted at night (in a rural area without street lights so can see many stars at night), the GMAIL app was a bit too bright for use (hurt to look at). Conversely, Dark Mode Map app in bright sunlight was unusable (could not easily see discern colored map details).

People who know me know that I am anything but confrontational or condescending. I may be a bit inept socially which is why I try to stick to precise, accurate, and complete answers ... geared not only to the individual who actually asked the question but for others reading it who need the same information. If you want socially adept, read Rosie - she is also knowledgeable.

+1 Yes while looking in the mirror at socially inept self (with Prayer desire to see everyone as God sees plus respond as God would in Holy Love).
