Now before everyone gets all clever and sends me ways to change the system settings on my devices to achieve the feature I'm requesting... STOP.  I am making a Logos feature request. I am fully aware that I can achieve a semblance of this via the OS System Settings. I don't want that. 

What I would like is a wonderfully designed and implemented "Night Mode" to Logos 7 non-Mobile apps. We already have that feature in the mobile devices, I would like it on my laptop's application. 

Please. 

Thank you.

I'm also betting that someone will skip right past the first paragraph and post how to change my OS settings... there will be consequences.

Let me tell you how you can use the OS settings to get Night Mode... Wink I kid...

Here's the place you'll want to go to show your support for this idea: https://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-6/suggestions/3357966-night-mode-for-pc-mac

Jeremy.  There's two areas that Logos-istas can not budge on. Orders from the top floor of the iron triangle.

1. No manual.  A fake one is ok.

2. Altering the desktop coolity ratio. Color managed resource panels, foreground/background, cutesy icons, etc.  And it's understandable. They compete in the annual most-cool UI (usable or not).

Look on the brite-side .... camping, Logos makes a great flashlight in the forest service restrooms. True!

Logos User Voice has several "night" suggestions:

24 Votes => Night Mode for PC/Mac

17 Votes => Add Themes to personalize colors/colours and improve readability

8 Votes => Place More Emphasis on Updates Which Reduce Eye Strain and Increase Eye Comfort

7 Votes => Night Theme Absolutely Indispensable

Every Logos user has 10 votes with a maximum of three for one suggestion.

Thankful for Negative Screen on Windows (added win+alt+F12 mode for normal color).

Don't trust Denise. All my input is manual. I know I could use Dragonly Speaking but that's not a language I know .... Stick out tongue

So yes, Jeremy, there's a third area that Logos-istas cannot budge on ... any thread may be hijacked by bad humor.

Yes, you request is a reasonable request that should receive serious consideration.

Is it possible to combine these suggestions together?  That would give one suggestion 56 votes, and would not split up other votes

MJ, I realize you have to defend Logos.

But requests for background adjustments have gone on for years. Along with demands for a manual.

I personally don't see 'vote' as an honest answer (for me). Even Libby didn't have adjustable backgrounds (very easy to code). You could adjust hot link colors ... but don't touch the background.

And this, for customers with eye strain, and couples, where 1 needs to sleep. Who is kidding who?  It's not going to happen.

Now, I applaud Jeremy's request ... it's the guy in Bellingham I wonder about.

No, I don't have to defend Logos and yes, I did tell Jeremy that I consider this a reasonable request i.e. something that should be put on a project priority list ... as for whether or not it will happen, I haven't any inside knowledge one way or the other ... I would suspect that the adding of a forum for accessibility would mean that they intend to spend more time on issues such as this.

Logos Users have option to move votes for suggestions.  Lowest Vote total on page 1 of Logos User Voice has 150 votes. On page 2, the lowest votes is 62.  Page 3 lowest vote is 41.

Page 3 includes 61 Votes => Make hyperlink color more distinguishable from black and/or allow user to customize it (created on 11 May 2012)

Page 4 includes 35 Votes => black background (created on 30 Jan 2011)

Page 4 includes 27 Votes => Night Mode for PC/Mac (created on 15 Nov 2012)

Page 5 includes 20 Votes => Add Themes to personalize colors/colours and improve readability (created on 30 Jun 2014 with "Night Mode" + more)

Page 10 includes 8 Votes => Place More Emphasis on Updates Which Reduce Eye Strain and Increase Eye Comfort (created on 30 Nov 2014)

Page 11 includes 7 Votes => "Low Light" setting for Logos 4 would be GREAT! PLEASE! (created on 20 Oct 2012)

Page 12 includes 7 Votes => Night Theme Absolutely Indispensable (created on 3 Nov 2014)

Caveat: color implementation challenge is coordinating Highlighting colors with Theme.  Using Negative Screen to change white to black with smart color inversion causes colorful highlighting to appear different.  By the way, updated Logos Wiki => Night Mode with Negative Green configuration.
