Underlined text doesn't appear in dark view

I have Dark Mode turned on in MacOS and so DT is also in Dark Mode.

Has anyone noticed this happening in Rich Text DT notes?

When I underline a word the color of the underline is black, not white.

So you can’t see it!

BUT this issue is temperamental. I just created a new Rich Text note and underlined the text. It was white and appeared as it should. THEN I clicked out of this note and clicked back in, and then, the underline text had changed to black!

There seems to be an issue with DT integrating MacOS Dark View.

Any tips?

It appears the words have changed as well! :stuck_out_tongue:

I am seeing no issue in DEVONthink 3.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6.

What are you running?

What’s the point?

You can see that one is underlined in white and the other in black.

They’re both in Rich Text notes.

When you underline something and leave the note. And then return. The underline is black! There’s something going on with how DT works with MacOS Dark View.

Tried it here (DEVONthink 3.0.1, MacOS 10.14.6), and underlines in RTF docs stay the correct color.

The point is you’re not showing an apples-to-apples comparison, since the text is not the same.

Also, because you didn’t say if you are running Mojave or the Catalina beta.

I’m running DT 3.0.1 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

Check this evidence out!


And look - when I change the text to “white” it goes black and when I change back to “black” it goes white. This is because of Dark View.

But the underline stays the same in both scenarios.

Hopefully sorting out formatting issues will help someone else too!

I don’t want to take up too much space on this forum!

If too much of a rabbit hold don’t worry about it :slight_smile:

This might be rendering glitch depending on the used font. Which one did you use?


But it’s doing it with all fonts and only in Rich Text notes


If I change the background for a Rich Text note from black to white the text auto changes colour from white to black INCLUDING the underline.


If I change the background back from white to black the text auto changes colour from black to white BUT the underline stays black



The next release will improve this.
