Great, my dev machine is a 2010 Mac mini and just bit the dust apparently... Time to upgrade I guess.

It's never pretty at first when I do this macOS upgrade.
  • The menu bar in the middle is missing. It is actually there but invisible, (same colour as background?).
  • The light mode is mostly ok, just a few
  • The default colour scheme on the dark mode is horrid for visibility, (white text on grey!).
  • Some text box are missing their edging
I've got two options to resolve most of it, enforce light mode in the app at all time, or rework the interface elements to have settings in both modes. (Hopefully doesn't involve settings on many scores of panels.).

Hi Warwick,

At least it is running under Mojave.

How does it look if you select the Classic set of colours rather than the default?

My preference would be to have settings for both modes but if that is too complex to complete quickly I would rather have the other issues reworked as previously planned and have light mode forced initially (fixed properly later).

Regards,

Nigel
