Dark Mode missing on client

On my Mac Mini Indigo runs in dark mode. That is where the server is. When I connect to it from my MBP Indigo is in light mode, even though dark mode is selected in appearance. Config error or bug? Version is 7.4 for client, 7.4.1 for server. Both machines run 10.15.3

Re: Dark Mode missing on client

You have to download and run the 7.4.1 installer on all Macs. If you are just using the client on a Mac then press the config/options button in the installer and deselect everything but the client.

Re: Dark Mode missing on client

Im not sure what im missing, but after installing 7.4.1, and rebooting, indigo is not responding to my switching dark mode on and off. Is there a setting I need to apply in indigo itself? MacOS 10.15.3

Re: Dark Mode missing on client

Choose the Indigo 7->About Indigo menu item. What versions does it show you are running for the client and server?

Re: Dark Mode missing on client

I'm not sure why it isn't working. It should switch to the Dark Mode appearance immediately upon changing the system setting. I know there are some 3rd party apps that let you disable/enable Dark Mode for specific apps as well as some command line techniques to change the settings. Have ever done either of those?

Re: Dark Mode missing on client

I don't think I have any 3rd party app like that installed. It was a clean install when I installed Catalina. I'll double check.. Any debugging commands or terminal commands you can recommend to help diagnose, let me know I would be happy to help.

Re: Dark Mode missing on client

Can you describe in detail (or take a screen shot) of what you are seeing? Are all of your other apps and macOS windows in Dark Mode and Indigo's are not at all? Is there any difference in Indigo's UI when toggling Dark Mode ON and OFF?

Matt, You're proving to be a genius once again :-) ... Yes, somehow, I had nightOwl installed and it was set to leave all apps in light mode. Thank you for your help. Great product!
