@Don: I just wanted to bring something up that I had noticed but never bothered mentioning until now, the colors displayed in the catalog adapt to dark mode in a much different way than for instance list label colors, for example here is a comparison between the catalog and the list of the same hex color:

Just wanted to check that they are both meant to use such a different algorithm?

Yes, it's different and you're not alone if you find it confusing. I wish we had an option to modify this behaviour - I'd much rather have a WYSIWYG-approach ;-)

Okay, I will change that. Might make that configurable later (hard versus adaptive colors).

Did anybody try this? I personally prefer the slightly darkened colors in Dark Mode:

Code: Select all

v20.10.0010 - 2019-06-12 12:40
    + Dark Mode: Added tweak "DarkAdaptive" by which you can make custom colors 
      a bit less bright in Dark Mode. Easier to the eye IMO.
        DarkAdaptive=1
      The following colors are affected:
      - Label Backgrounds
      - Color Filter Backgrounds
      - Catalog Custom Colored Backgrounds
      Note that Label Backgrounds had been hard-coded to DarkAdaptive=1 before, 
      and now they are non-adaptive by default. So your labels will look 
      different now (brighter) in Dark Mode, exactly as you defined them in 
      Configuration (unless you set the new tweak).
      
      To make it easier to test the effect of the tweak I made it accessible 
      through the yet undocumented scripting command "dark". Enable Dark Mode 
      and ensure that any of the above listed affected colors are visible, then 
      run one of these scripts as fit:
        dark 3:=-2;   //toggle DarkAdaptive
        dark 3:=0;    //set DarkAdaptive=0
        dark 3:=1;    //set DarkAdaptive=1

I agree, the dimmer variant is preferable.

Looked at it again. It's simply too undocumented. We have to wait.
Any luck with Windows 10 1903?

@Don: I noticed a couple small things I thought I would point out, using a fresh config when you go into configuration and change the darkness level or text contrast while dark mode is active, and close the config window, the changes aren't updated until you swap focus of the panes, and also the UI and tree BG color stays at the previous darkness level, turning dark mode on/off resolves it though.

An example:

After the success of the dark mode, the next option would be to adjust the black or gray level of the interface.

ok ^, but an idea, show in a field the color variation in real time, because you have to apply [ok] to visualize the changes

Check out the dark command in scripting. You can build dark theme controller interface with it I guess.
