Mojave’s handling of Rich Text in Dark Mode is now broken in several places, including the new version of TextEdit, in QuickLook, and Pages.
Not mentioned in the release notes, the new version of TextEdit is a bold attempt to provide a Dark Mode which is infuriating, confusing, and inconsistent. Avoid it.
Gets your Rich Text documents working properly in Light and Dark modes, and extensive support for editing, including live word and character count.
Now lets you set your own default font and size applied to all new windows, and offers better reduced contrast appearance in both Dark and Light modes.
First candidate for a final release, this counts the words and characters in your Rich Text as you type or edit them.
Also fixes Endarken and Enlighten for changing the colour of Rich Text and its behaviour in Light and Dark Modes.
A reduced contrast option should make Dark Mode easier on the eyes, and there’s additional help for converting text to work fully in both Light and Dark modes.
When you need to create a document which displays properly in both modes, Rich Text is the answer – here’s how to get it right first time.
We’re still writing most text in black on a white background on displays with wide colour and high-resolution. Why not use colour for additional meaning?
All I wanted was a Rich Text editor which supported Dark Mode properly in Mojave. In the end, I had to write it myself.
