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 😓

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 :)

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

WOW THIS RIGHT HERE!!

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