    This is traumatising me.

    I see a blue screen and I want it painted black!

    I'm so glad to hear this is changing back. The blue is kinda nice, but def not what I want from a dark theme.

    Also with this teal change, the contrast between normal items and those marked as complete is way too much. Completed items should still be easily legible. Right now they blend in too much with the background.

    I don't really mind the new background color, but the font color of notes and completed items is now so dark I can barely read it, which definitely needs to be fixed ASAP.

    I agree with Tomas. I don't mind the new "lighter" blue-ish dark theme color be the notes are too dim to be functional. 

    My $0.02 would be to make an easy theme customizer for pro members, with the current themes as presets. Just let us pick background, font, note, bullet and column colors, nothing too crazy just some basic customization.

    Customisation would be ideal. Or no customisation by anyone - including the developers ; )

    Thanks for your patience, all. We are working on a gigantic update to a lot of backend things that will be out on Monday (we hope). Then we will turn our attention to getting this where you want it to be. Thanks for waiting.

    Also I believe this is the way you want it on beta, yes?

    Oh yeah baby! Charcoal - huge improvement for me at least!

    Thanks a bunch Lee

    Could be a little darker for my taste, and the title bar is still white, but going gray as is for now will keep me happy until further tweaks appear. I hope other users like it too. No going back for me!

    I know you guys have been getting after it in a bunch of areas, so kudos to the lot of you - well done team : )

    I just opened Workflowy Beta on a Mac I don't use much, and it had a perfect dark gray in dark mode. I thought for a moment you'd darkened it already, and that was pretty exciting (for me at least!). Then I restarted and the latest dark teal appeared. I definitely want it gray only and darker - it looked very much better.

    Here's the approximate difference:

     

    currently, WF is still dark blue/green, albeit a dark version. The gray on the left is the kind of colour I'm after. Apparently it matters enough to write about it here : /

    Definite request for that change here!
