Dark modes: Blue on black text in Forecast (con't)


Though the topic was addressed previously, only a work around was discussed and I thought that it bares opening again since there was no mention of a change in an update. The change is very simple as even though Omnifocus uses the calendar color as a choice, it should simply follow Apple Calendar (in dark mode) and give the same text colors for the calendar in question

For example, this is my blue calendar in Apple Calendar, but here is what text from that color calendar looks like in Omnifocus 3 Pro Forecast view:


So, I just wondered if there’s an update on this issue versus just settling to change my calendar color in Apple Calendar because as the person mentioned in the article their still seemed to be an issue with gray on black for passed event times.

And yes, I did in the meanwhile change my color because obviously that dark wasn’t happening ;)

Thanks for your efforts in the product overall! Great work!

Whoa! I’m frustrated with the low contrast in both dark and light modes (especially for inactive items), but that screenshot is ridiculous!

Yeah, it’s still hard to read lists in the dark mode. They need to fix this is an update. another example is the “Change view option” (eye icon) menu. Because of the transparency of the window, the list of options in gray are hard to see.

And weirdly, dropped tasks are higher contrast (and thus more legible) than ones that are deferred or on hold.

Obviously they need to look at the dark mode highlighting issue. ;)
