Hi! This is to save ink :wink:

I think…

See also part of the discussion here:

Let’s leave this topic open until someone from the Anytype team confirms this is the intended behavior.

Hey! I fully understand the intent, but I think the implementation can be done better. Instead of making the main GUI into light mode, which can be quite eye-searing at moments, I think there should instead, be a preview windows in the prompt which shows how it would look like, just like how it is when you try to print a webpage using a web browser.

I agree! Or maybe a light/dark switch to momentarily switch between the dark mode you are in and the light mode how it would be printed.

@Ciel would you be OK with turning this into a feature request? I believe this behavior is the intended behavior, but it is obviously not our desired behavior.

I would call it more like a tweak request, but I suppose a feature request is more fitting.

Windows 11 22H2 for Anytype Version: 0.29.1 same issue. This is not a print preview, but the dark theme of the program just disappears.

@dan.voronov thanks for confirming.

Can you provide a screenshot or video of this?


I’m guessing it might be the print preview, but I can’t switch to the window. Scrolling doesn’t work. It just turns white and stick in the background.

I’m want to see for a preview in the system window, but there’s nothing…

Yeah there definitely should be a way to do better PDF exports.
