Workaround ( not a complete solution, but is more then nothing )

 

  1. Create a big canvas (rectangle)
  2. Set Your Color
  3. Lock it in place so its unselectable and you can work on top of that.

Thank me later :)

WOW THIS RIGHT HERE!!

I have another workaround:
Use it in Google Chrome and install the AddOn “Dark Reader” then enable it.

None of these solutions are really sufficient, in my opinion. They’re helpful, of course, but it’s they aren’t replacements for a built-in dark mode (or better, a customizable background). The Dark Reader fix inverts images on Miro, which is awful. The workaround with the large frame or image works, but it makes navigation more difficult. It’s also very frustrating to have it as a selectable object, even if it’s locked. The options panel for it is distracting, and it’s horrible if you accidentally double-click anywhere that isn’t the content you actually care about, because suddenly you’re zoomed out to the size of your whole project (or the size you expect your project to be, which might be much larger). 

 

I find it discouraging that a post 2 years old with half as many comments as there are total suggestions on the forums is ignored by designers when very, very little effort would be required to implement a robust feature for background customization. They implemented the dotted background when that was requested, and that request was made 1 year ago. I just don’t understand.

Wish there was a dark mode 😓

Please add a dark mode.

What’s there more important?

A fix for dark mode. Install this extension in any browser. It has several settings such as brightness, contrast, etc. to adjust to your liking--->Dark Reader

 

Figma did it? I understand it is kind of difficult perhaps… At least making a dark background?

really? no dark mode?

I’ve canceled my subscription. Dark reader is no longer working and without a dark mode this is unusable.

 @Mike Slivinski Just curious, why is it unusable without dark mode?

That’s amazing ?!? There is no dark mode… White is really dazzling...

 

Yes, in the miro app, there would be no possibility to use any browser plugins and i love the app. please consider that in your backlog.

This is fundamental UX.  On large HDR monitors Miro is blinding. I’m not going to waste my time searching for workarounds, enduring eye strain, headaches, and other problems because a paid app ignores the most fundamental principles of UX.
