DT3.0.1 Text cursor effectively invisible in dark mode

I’ve found one topic covering this issue from May 2019, but issue is either still there or Catalina broke it again (I didn’t use DT back then).

Steps to replicate:

  1. Switch macOS to dark mode,
  2. create or edit any markdown or plain text file,
  3. text and document background color are correct, but cursor remains black which is almost invisible or dark gray background.


  • macOS: 10.15 (19A602)
  • DT 3.0.1

I have Catalina setup so dark mode switches automatically at the evening. I suspect this is the root of the problem. If I start DT and system is already in dark mode, cursor is correct, white, color.

Yes, it is likely due to the system switching while DEVONthink is running. We will have a look.
