I just installed LyX ( on MacOS Big Sur (11.4). However, the background is dark. I want to set it to the default background settings. I tried to play with Colors in Look&Feel but it doesn't seem to work.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • Strange, changing the "background" color in Look & Feel works for me. After you select the color and press OK, maybe try to restart and see ic that helps?

  • Thanks It is working when I only deselect "Use System Colors". Otherwise, it is always dark.

  • Ah yes. I suggest you open a ticket on lyx.org/trac and link to that ticket here. I think it could be improved. From what I understand from lyx.org/trac/changeset/35096/lyxsvn LyX overrides the manual colors with the system colors, which is surprising to the user.
