A lot of editors and websites these days come with a night mode or a dark mode where the background text is not white in color. Can we get that please?

As a lover of dark themes I agree!

Did you know that Manuskript already supports manually changing item colours?
See Edit -> Settings -> Views, and also Edit -> Settings -> Fullscreen sections.

To search through the existing issues raised for Manuskript you can add and subtract terms from the Filters. The steps to search all issues for the word "dark" are:

  1. Click on Issues in the Manuskript git page.
  2. Remove "is:open" from the Filters.
  3. Add "dark".
  4. Press Enter key.

This should create the following list of issues which contain the word "dark".

See issue 183 - Index card text almost invisible in dark themes for an example of how some users have configured dark themes.

Does that answer your question?

No actually... I don't see exactly where it says how to configure a dark theme in that issue...

I'd much rather have an official dark theme instead of manually having to configure it.

I believe the dark theme in the issue #183 mentioned above was selected at the desktop level.

For example in Kubuntu 16.04 I can select "Breeze Dark" under K -> Settings -> System Settings -> Workspace Theme -> Look And Feel.

Manuskript then uses the chosen workspace theme.

You can further refine the text editor colours using Manuskript's Edit -> Settings-> Views -> Text editor.

Comment from AlucardNoir copied from Manuskript 0.7.0 web site page:

I'm posting this here because I don't want to make a GitHub account and have yet another account and password to bog me down. In regards to the requested Dark Mode/Theme( #388 ) while things might work in Linux like that, on Windows things are a lot different. Dark Mode was a joke before the last update and frankly still is somewhat of a joke even after the October update. For windows, at least at the present, the program must supply it's own dark theme. Hell, even MS Office doesn't use a windows flag to turn on the inbuilt dark themes it has, and that's an MS product - MS is bad at doing dark mode.

+1 for easy way to switch to dark mode. Manual theming only seems to go so far on Windows, i.e. the text editor.

Loving the product so far, great work.
