To illustrate, here’s an Evernote note in Evernote and then imported into Anytype (the conversion tool retrieves the closest color). When source has white texte and a “dark” background color, Anytype cannot produce something similar
Orange also looks more brown in mobile, which I love, actually. (It’s just strange because it’s orange in desktop. It could be two different colors.) I feel like the colors there are easier on the eyes and generally looks better together when you use a lot of colors in one layout. (I’m on Light Mode.)
