It's in the toolbar (I think, I don't have the computer in front of me).

Re: Dark Screen?

Now the toolbar has disappeared, I just upgraded to 3.2.0 I think that was my mistake.

Also possible the daylight sensor is having an issue or the back light has burned out.

Re: Dark Screen?

I don't think anything has burned out, OpenCPN is the only program not working on this computer.

I would suggest to press F5 one or 2 time more (night sequence setting got at least 3 phases).
