Night Mode for PC/Mac
While I frequently use "Night Mode" to read on my ipad, I find that there are times that it would be immensely useful to have the same ability on a PC/Mac.
Perhaps, in the "Resource Panel Background Settings" area you could add the ability to select a black background with white text when reading at night.
Another route would be to make a simple button on the menu bar for "Night Mode".
See https://wiki.logos.com/Night_Mode for ways to invert the colors on your PC/Mac, including Logos 6.

Between work, grad school, and using Logos I spend easily 14+ hours a day working on computers. Using dark mode with other tools enables me to work without getting migraines. This is the only major application that I use that seems completely unwilling to create a more eye-friendly UI. It amazes me that this is the second most popular suggestion and has been on the forum for 7 years without getting pulled into the development roadmap.

Yes. I agree with the comments from the other Logos users, it would be really great if dark mode was supported. Is there any plan at all for this feature to be developed at some point (dev backlog), even if not immediately? Thanks!

In 2019, almost all apps provide a dark mode. As Logos is one of my most important apps, I beg you to add this feature! Thank you!
Using invert colors is not a solution anymore. Many Macs automatically switch to Dark Mode. When this is the case and the keystroke is entered, Logos becomes dark, but the rest of the OS becomes light. Please add a native dark mode that changes based on what the user has selected in the toggle in system preferences.

I would truly love Dark Mode on macOS. The lack of Dark Mode makes Logos jarring (to say the least) when I open it up and am assaulted by a glaring white screen. Please consider adding it (soon).
Yes, please add dark mode in desktop app.

I would greatly appreciate a night mode option in Logos. The current gray background option is somewhat helpful. Maybe it would be easier to add an option for black back ground with white text for resources instead of the entire program?
The Low Light mode is great on the Android version of the apps. Would be great on the PC version as well.

please give us a Dark/Night mode setting on logos
Another vote for dark mode.
So much white on a screen - LOGOS needs a Dark Mode to be readable and minimize eye strain.

Dreaming of Light Mode & Dark Mode Highlighting Palettes (with Styles) to complement Light Mode & Dark Mode user interface. Faithlife modifies the four system Highlighting Palettes to add Dark Mode styles (keeps same style name). For user Highlighting Palettes, Faithlife duplicates Light Mode as Dark Mode when user customizes a style for Dark Mode use (alternate idea is duplicating all Light Mode styles as Dark Mode styles). User interface mode (Light OR Dark) chooses Style mode for Highlighting Palettes (no need to modify Light Mode Style when using Dark mode user interface).

** UPDATE 10/18/19 - WE NOW HAVE THIS... THANK YOU LOGOS!!! **
On iOS, we can go to “View Settings” and turn “Low Light” on. This is the same as dark mode. However, what I’m voting for here is that you add the option to tie “Low Light” to turn on/off with whether iOS dark mode is presently activated. As you know, some people don’t always have it on or off. People on iOS can schedule dark mode to turn on automatically at night. And it’s strange that Logos does not honor the current system setting.
TLDR: “Low Light” is a beautiful dark mode! Can we have it auto follow the current iOS dark mode setting?
Hey Logos devs... I bet you code with a dark theme in your IDE... it sucks to stare for hours at a glaring white screen :)
Olive Tree did it: https://www.olivetree.com/blog/windows-update/darkmode/

Another vote for Dark Mode...Logos is the only app left on my computer which burns my retinas. Agreed that this is isn't a preference only issue, I think it of it as a health issue. Thank you!

I would also please request a dark mode. It means that we can use Logos late at night etc. and reduce overall eye strain.
Please - this is an important feature, not just as 'nice to have'.
I appreciate it takes a lot of work from the coding side of things, but it would be great to have this.

Dark mode please
For those of us with visual impairment, making text bigger while not losing functionality is only part of the game. White text on black background is wonderful and a big reason why, at this point, I will not switch from Kindle to Logos despite fewer features in Kindle.
This is a software made for serious study for people who want so seriously to study that they have paid a good deal of money to be able to do so. More often than not, my time with the software is cut short from eye-strain. A dark mode as well as an amber mode with this type (text dependent) of software should be a given at this level of developement. I'm questioning my purchase. It's amazing but what good is it if I can't use it because it causes eyestrain and migraines.
Furthermore, it seems that you are ignoring a large base of customers who have very kindly and with good laid-out reasons requested this function, because you won't even respond to these comments. So, please give us an update or have the decency to give us a direct denial.
