MacOs dark mode dialogue window issue


I want submit the issue about the wrong colors combination in dialogue window in MacOS (my is Monterey) when in dark mode as in the screenshot.



Which dialog is it, please?

Cubase asking if I want to Save the project

Today I’ve activated manually the dark mode and then deactivated again.
Then I tried to replicate the issue tonight with the auto activated dark mode and all seems to work fine.
Maybe a momentary OS malfunction fixed by the manual on/off?
I don’t know, but I want to inform you that all is working fine now.

I’m experiencing the same issue myself. When I enable ‘auto’ or ‘dark’ mode, then go to Cubase > Settings, buttons use white text that is not visible on the light grey background.

It’s not just this settings area, but other similar pop-up windows, such as when I’m trying to add an External Instrument.

A work around solution for now is to just use light mode. Cubase has it’s own coloring scheme that is still easy on the eyes even in light mode.


Which Cubase version and macOS version do you use, please?

Hi everyone I have the same issue.
The fix provided by OP didn’t solve my issue. :confused:
I’m running Cubase 12 on macOS 13.4.1 (22F82)

Does anyone know how to solve this ?

Thanks a lot!

Why was this thread marked as solved? Did someone figure it out? This issue has plagued me ever since I started using Cubase a few years back, and it hasn’t been fixed in Cubase 13 despite its new interface being a major selling point.
