Hi , simple question, do we have some 'dark mode' in onshape ? (As white screen puts a lot of stress on eyes). I've tried a few chrome extensions but they are not working for me.
Thanks.

    While installing Dark reader it is asking for the following permission:
    Could someone from Onshape please confirm whether it is a security issue or not, regarding login details, IP or in any other aspect?

    This works until you do an extrude or another feature that makes the background turn white again.

    Dark Reader is on open source project. You can find all the source code on github. Dark Reader works by taking the source code of the web page and inverting all the colors. It can not work without accessing your data for all websites.

    New question, I just now started up OnShape and it went into this dark mode all by itself, which I do not want. I have not installed a dark mode extension, and I can't find a light/dark mode preference setting. How do I get back to light mode?

    Is the entire UI dark or just the graphics viewport? Might be a WebGL issue on your side. There's some debugging advice in this thread: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/14417/workspace-background-is-black

    Dark mode needs to be an inbuilt option; iPad needs it too.
