Dave,

Good progress! But in full screen mode there is still a bright white strip near the chart bar.

Similarly, the context menu (right mouse click) is blindingly bright. As are the borders of the tools dialog. Plugin dialogs are inconsistent as well. I guess there is no API that plugins can use to determine whether they should change border colors for night mode.

OpenCPN - Night mode is not really a night!

Dave,

I spoke too soon. Eventually the white line went away. Not sure why it took some time. This was under Windows 10 which I am learning has some graphics issues.

Edit: Opening the tools dialog then closing it removes the bright white line between chart bar and status bar. Not sure why it doesn't go away at first though.

Re: OpenCPN - Night mode is not really a night!

During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

When using night mode visible white border that makes the overall picture in the dark bright. This picture is blind at night.

Alternatively, use a contrasting theme in Windows but it is not convenient because you have to switch to a normal topic
Need a clear picture in a dark night mode!
agree, on Windows I use f.lux to overcome this issue but on Raspi I suffer!
Also find it difficult to find the icon for switching back to daylight when I accidentally switched to nightmode during the day !
