This is an excellent step in the right direction. However, while I love the dark UI, I find it difficult to read on a dark background. Please enable the selection of resource background while in Dark Mode.

Voted for Dark Mode: Allow different resource backgrounds plus voted for => Toggle dark mode without restarting

Keep Smiling Smile

I too voted for both of these.

The dark mode is nice although to see the icons on the top are difficult to see. These would be nice possibly if they were where white with black lettering in them.

Hi David,

I noticed the Workflow that has the issue is public. I will note that in the case so that developers can get a copy to fix it.

Mattillo:

Last night on my MacBook I had trouble seeing the headings in the Omasticon.  Anyone else having issues with certain books in dark mode?  A good way to fix that?

I see the same problem with "Carta's New Century Handbook and Atlas of the Bible".  When not in Dark Mode, the photo captions are white text on grey background and are very easy to read.  When in Dark Mode, it changes to "black" text on a "not quite as black" background.  Very difficult to read--almost unusable.

I imagine there are a number of potential kinks/issues with Dark Mode.  Hopefully Faithlife will be able to sort them all out or it may severely limit it's use/benefit.

Friends,

In general, I prefer a dark mode when doing a lot of work on my computer, as it does ease the eyes. However, I wish the dark mode was "as simple as" white on black. I see this throughout the internet in which websites are using "non-black" and "non-white" fonts and backgrounds. For example, a website with an ivory background and light gray font just doesn't make sense.

I would prefer if Logos's Dark Mode had a true black background and white font or, better yet, that the user could create their own palette. I know this pipe dream is a considerable effort, but I'm not sure why the PC industry has moved completely away from customizing colors. MS Windows  previously allowed total customization of all colors in all situations. Now, with their massively huge OS's we are unable to change but very few color options. It seems the technology is moving in the opposite direction of customizability.

Overall, though, I like/prefer dark mode. On the App, dark mode is true Black/White, which is a blessing to my old eyes.

Dark mode is certainly coming along in beta testing, as the comments and my experience show. I like it for reading text, and when it works, it's wonderful. But, in some resources (tables in the Holman Book of Biblical Charts, Maps and Reconstructions, for example), tables are unreadable. Instead of trying to get every resource to work perfectly with Dark Mode, wouldn't it be far easier to let me, the user, determine what background to use in a particular panel? I've mocked up what I mean below. First, the Dark Mode with the obvious issue of unreadable text, followed by a user determined panel background.

One thing that can be improved is the shade of the background. Dark mode is blue tinged. 

The whole point of dark mode is to reduce the amount of blue light at night. It's really yuck and off putting. Compare it to all my other apps, it is the only blue one.

The background where no pane is blue, and the background behind a resource is worse again.
