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".

    Please add a dark mode. This is a very simple change. You should already have the existing code built in as you can change to a sepia mode or light gray. In this day, a mark of a mature product is becoming a dark mode. Even many new products make it a priority as it exceeds light modes in many situations. Because I spend so many hours using your software, I would greatly appreciate it. If you open sourced the code, it'd already exist because it's such a priority.

    Love Logos. HATE the dependence on white-only. Can't say how much it would benefit me (especially as Apple has even changed to Dark Mode in Mojave) to not be so incredibly jarred when I switch to Logos. I'm starting to feel like I have to wear sunglasses to use this product! PLEASE, developers. I'm a Software Developer - I know it isn't that hard.

    I advocate for black (or dark) program background, as well as black (or dark) resource background. When my eyes get tired of staring at the screen, but I still need to keep studying, I find it quite a relief when I change the background color of my Microsoft Word document to black. This extends my work time and prevents headaches.

    Yes. Night mode. Please. Studying for hours trying to prepare sermons would be so much less strenuous on the eyes with a night mode. It is the new standard for apps, so jump on it! Thanks.

    "We'll post any news about the addition of a dark mode to this suggestion [here]."

    And yet half a year later, still no response about implementing the fundamental dark mode in OS X Mojave.

    Please, implemente this! Many of us study bible during night, and don´t want to force our eyes or bourder our familys. Every software of development has this feature, this is an essencial feature!

    This has been a request for over 6 years. I'm about to make my own bible software just because there isn't dark mode.

    Dark mode/ night mode please. Eye strain is a concern for many of us.

  • Matt Sickon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would love to have dark mode as it's easier on my eyes as I mainly use the computer all day and it can be quite tiring to have one BRIGHT monitor on the second one, and other one in Dark mode...Can you please make the appropriate change? If you claim that you make a first class application, then prove it.

    any update on the darkmode at mac os mojave? most of the apps have it by now

  • Ruben S commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I end up using WIndow's magnifier tool (using the color inverter) to achieve the stated goal here for reading/studying at times. However, in doing so the colors of notes, underlines, etc. too become inverted (obviously), so I have to adjust to recognizing the inverted color(s), etc. in the inverted mode.
    A simple dark mode in Logos would be such a useful and easy (??) tool.
    Big bump for dark mode.

    +1 on Dark Mode. Logos is GREAT software, but its lack of GUI theme support is literally PAINFUL. Proof: https://bit.ly/2OUAk5o

    I even have Chrome extensions to force Dark Mode on browser tabs that have light-backgrounds, like this one! Windows 10 and macOS both have full-support for Dark Mode ... I use both.

    Everyone else has covered the wherefore and why so I won't add anything there except to note that my daytime job is computer programming and one of the best themes for that is "Solaris". It comes in dark and light. Here is an example of "light" mode-


    here is "dark" mode-


    I hope you will listen to us. I understand this has been an ongoing request and it is not a big one. You already allow us to gray out the text. We should be able to darken that more AND the rest of the application as well. Just need to create the hooks and then call the theme to fill in colors ;)

    Please give us a dark mode. Even Windows is offering it now (the Explorer should follow with the next update) and it really is helpful when spending long times or evenings in front of the screen. Thank you :-)

  • Isaac commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes please. If you want me to spend even more time and money on your product do Dark Mode.
