  • Night mode makes text unreadable

    I'm glad Foxit finally got night mode and it works fine with most documents too, but I think it just requires a little bit of tweaking. As shown in the attachment, the text becomes almost unreadable when turning on night mode. On closer inspection, I found that the original text was not black, but a very dark shade of grey. The night mode feature works fine with black text. I know I can fix this by changing accessibility preferences, but I still felt this needed to be pointed out. Cheers.

          I am facing the same problem. I recently bought Foxit 11 but most of my documents are not readable in night mode, which is a real pity.

          How can I do to turn the text white via the accesssibility preferences, please? I tried all combinations but never found a way to obtain black background and white text in night mode for the problematic documents.

          Thank you,


          EDIT : I found the solution (I forgot to uncheck "Only change the color of black text" and thought that this was linked to the night mode). Nevertheless, I can't wait to use the upcoming improved night mode. It's a very important feature (for me, but also for other users, as the forum clearly shows).

              Yes Richell. The text appears in white with a black background. It is a workaround even if it is not a perpetual solution.The real solution is to fix the night mode, but it is a work in progress in your team as far as I know.
