Sigil difficult to use in dark mode?

I wanted to create a document in Sigil but I'm finding things very difficult in Dark Mode. (I find using Dark Mode easier on my eyes.)
Screenshots included. Please feel free to try out Sigil in Dark Mode to see for yourself.

* I think the problem is that you are using a Mac *



Sorry, did I say that out loud?!?!?

Seriously though, you just need to adjust the background AND foreground colors in Edit/Preferences/Appearance/CSS Code View. Click Background, select color. Then click Foreground, select color, etc.

Then you need to restart Sigil.

Cheers!

Preferences covers only the code viewer, not the rest of the UI. The custom theme seems to be the only workaround so far.

Sorry, your screenshots were focusing on the code view window.
