Dark Score feature

• Nov 8, 2019 - 16:29

Currently using MS 3.3 and I love the Dark Mode feature. Nevertheless the score is displayed on white and setting the color of the paper to black in "Canvas settings" is not really a good idea due symbols, staves, text and notes stay in black and changing them in "style" alters the PDF exporting.
I'd love it to have a "Dark Score" mode that switches all the colors there. like the one shown on this tutorial for MS2: https://musescore.org/en/node/270327#issues and also an added feature to choose the UI colors if you don't like some.
I added a picture form it just to show what I'm talking about :D

Reminds me of my days in the public central library (many many decades ago, when paper books were used) when I would use wet, smelly, chemical photocopy machines to take home pages of Bach and Victoria, and they produced inverse-color images like that (before xerography).

Hello! Thanks for replying.

Exactly, White on Black and exportable.

I'm on Windows 10 and Musescore 3.6.2 (last)

I've done this:
1. Edit-Preferences-Appearance-Theme-Dark
2. Edit-Preferences-Canvas-Paper-Black
Doesn't export the black, it's only for inside the program, I would want the exported score black for then
visualizing it in musescore.com in black paper.
3.1 Edit-Preferences-Advanced-ui/score/defaultColor-White
.2 Selecting all similar Elements not whited in point 4. and changing them
.3 Staff: right click precisely on it, Staff/Part Properties...-Staff Properties-Staff line color:White (right).
But with every score.
4. Format-Style...-Text Styles (last)-All Blacks to White
Paper: no option.
Staff: yes but doesn't work nor there's any option in Format-Style...-Staff text.
5. Applied this: https://musescore.org/en/node/270327#symbols-and-text
Even changing the name to MuseScore3 and changing HEX colors (to try)

Also uninstall, reboot and reinstall several times...
