I'm also interested to see what they have to say.  I do like the dark look
(that is how I have Atom configured and the SE in LiveCode too).

With property inheritance, it shouldn't be too difficult to implement for
elements within the stack.  This is the kind of thing that the profile
manager would be good at managing, but it may be better to separate out the
position and "theme" elements.  If you had small/large portrait/landscape
then you would go from 4 to 8 profiles to handle light/dark as well.  As a
developer, we would just need the messages telling us when the user changed
the mode.  I'm not sure how much work it will be in the IDE/Engine itself
though.

We haven’t yet got a system with it running on yet. If anyone does (Colin?) we would be interested in any reports regarding dark mode or anything else. We get default colors from the OS via NSColor class methods so hopefully things will just work for the most part. Obviously where a user has set a color then that’s going to be an issue. I presume there’s appropriate NSApplication methods to determine the current theme. Perhaps either Trevor or Paul can be convinced to put stuff for that in their mac extensions in the short term.

Cheers

Monte

I have several tight deadline things on at the moment, otherwise I would have gone ahead and installed it!

Come to think of it, I do have an external drive I could try it on.

Hi Tekne,

We have filed this bug report to track the crash on startup on MacOS Mojave:

https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=21363

Note that Mojave is currently in early beta, so it might be the case that
this issue is resolved on the next beta. If I remember correctly, a similar
problem affected LC in early beta of High Sierra.

Anyway, if you could attach a crash log to this report, it would be great.

Best regards,
Panos
