Hi,

I am running Logos Bible Software 9.7 SR-1 9.7.0.0025 on macOS Big Sur 11.5.2 on Logos Preference -> Application Theme -> "Dark" Mode.

When I export any resources (Commentaries, Bibles, etc) into PDF, I get a unreadable "light grey" on "white" PDF. Is there any workaround, apart from setting Logos Preference -> Application Theme -> to "Light" Mode. Thank you.

Attached is an example:

Hi LimJK:

I think there's a built-in Mac function to save to PDF. If so, and that's what Logos uses, try using a conventional 'print to PDF' printer as a workaround. 

I use WIn 10 with the same Logos version you're using and the attached PDF was saved using a 'save to PDF' printer definition.

Hi, MJ & Robert,

Thanks for responding to my post, I just got a reply from tech support:

"Thank you for reaching out to us! We have been able to replicate this behavior on our end as well, when printing both to a PDF or a regular printer. At this time, the workaround you described would be the best way to avoid this behavior. That being said, I have reported this behavior to our Developers for further investigation, so we will be able to work on a permanent solution in a future update to the program. We greatly appreciate your patience in the meantime!"

In Print/Export, can click "Copy to clipboard", switch to LibreOffice, MS Word, Notepad, Pages, TextEdit, (Word Processor of choice), ... followed by pasting into a document => print using different application (optional is changing formatting before printing).
