Dark Mode Not Making Dark

Hello, new here. Testing Devonthink out

Anyways, having issues turning on dark mode. I have it selected in the preferences but nothing has changed. Am I missing a step?


You don’t turn on dark mode in DEVONthink. DEVONthink honors the system setting unless this preferences is unchecked. Then documents will display as they do in light mode.

Ah, I see

In that case Dark Mode doesn’t seem to be working as everything is Lite

  • What version of DEVONthink are you running?
  • Are you running some other dark mode utilities?

Not running any other dark mode utilities

Says I am running Devonthink 3 v3.5.2

Does this persist after rebooting the machinr?

Yes, after re-booting there are no changes

Please post a screen capture showing macOS running in dark mode and DEVONthink in light mode.

Which version of macOS do you use? Did you ever use any hidden preferences of DEVONthink (e.g. to en/disable dark mode)?

I am new to DT so I am not aware of any hidden preferences as of yet so no

I will get back to you on the exact OS version. At the moment I am not near my computer with DT on it so that will be a while before I can respond but will do so once I can access the info

The o/s I am using is v10.13.6

Dark mode is a feature of macOS 10.14 Mojave and later. It is not an independent feature of DEVONthink.

Odd, as I have other features on the mac in dark mode

Regardless, if that’s the case I won’t delve any further into the matter

Thank you so much for your time & your help

macOS 10.13 supports a dark menubar but actually dark mode debuted with Mojave.

You’re very welcome :slight_smile:
