    Not sure if anyone noticed, but there seems to be a 1 pixel transparent line for the menu bar in dark mode. For apps that are light colored, it's unnoticeable. But for any dark programs like Photoshop, it's highly distracting. Ironically, dark mode is for designers...

    Anyone else have this issue?

    It's probably because they took out the shadows under the dark menu bar and left it flat.

    Why didn't you use shift-command-4 to take your screenshot? Opening Grab.app feels so cumbersome.

    Yes this sure is annoying. I've changed wallpapers to something darker so it doesn't stick out.

    I've noticed this as well. Also there is a gap on the bottom too when you have a window stretched out to full screen size (not full screen mode). It's about double the gap that's at the top.

    I think that's to help when using a hiding Dock.

    The gap at the top does bug me a bit, hopefully it gets fixed.

    The difference is: the gap at the bottom can be covered by manually resizing or moving the window. The gap at the top cannot be covered as you cannot move the window or resize it into that space.

    I was thinking it was for the dock as well, but I'm pretty sure the bottom gap wasn't there in Mavericks or any other previous OSX and the dock could be hidden in those.

    It was literally the first thing I noticed way back when I installed Public Beta 1 when it got released.

    ----------

    I have not been able to resize and cover up the bottom gap in any of the public betas and full release. This is on both 27" iMac and 17" macbook pro.

    Gap is also there without dark theme, just not as noticeable.

    Where is the control for activating dark mode? I have so far found only invert colours.

    I for one hate that they removed the shadow. It looks so inconsistent.

    In "General" near the top.

    It's the only thing that's holding me back from using the dark mode. I didn't realize it until many of the windows I use are dark (Photoshop, VLC Dark mode, Aperture (kind of) etc.)

    I hope Apple addresses this.
