  • Dark mode please (for App Chrome)

    Hi -

    I have been using Beyond Compare for decades, probably 20 years now (not sure when you started.) As a developer, it is a go-to tool that I use multiple times a day. In recent years, I have been transitioning all my tools to draw mode, as it is much easier on the eyes and I have found it helps with headaches induced by eyestrain. With Dark mode fully supported in macOS Mojave, the transition is almost complete.

    I had previously tried the dark color schemes available on your web site, but had reverted to default because they just didn't seem to work well. I tried them again this week, and now that everything else is dark, I realize why they are so jarring - it is because they are still surrounding by a light mode app chrome (window borders, scroll bars, etc.) The lightness surrounding the work area is distracting and pulls attention away from the work area.

    Can we please have a true dark mode for the app chrome at some point?

    Once again, I can't do without this app - I will use it light or dark. But my eyes and head would sure appreciate a dark mode!

    Thanks for all your great work!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Support for macOS Mojave dark mode is on the feature request list for a future version of Beyond Compare.

      Chris - Yes we love the app but even if we can add something that helps us deal with the "brightness", that would work wonders as well. Overall, keep kicking a$$. Cheers!
