    Seems dark mode is now officially enabled in System Preferences in DP3.

    I'm assuming this feature is now more or less complete, rather than the half-done job people found when they forced the theme - anyone got any screenshots?

    Could you take one with "Translucent menu bar" unchecked?

    How does a Finder window look? Menus, folders, etc?

    The same. Finder does not go dark.

    Hmm. So not much of a dark mode then, really.

    Yeah it's only the menu bar and dock. Still though, I kinda prefer it. I'm still going back and forth.

    Thanks. From what I'm seeing on the forum, it seems like we're being given three choices: translucent, white, or black. Is that correct?

    I wonder if dark mode will be more widespread in future releases? I love it :cool:


    Edit: I forgot to enable the dock so you could see how it looks so I took another one

    There's 4 options:

    Dark (Translucent/Opaque)
    Light (Translucent/Opaque)

    Woah, I love your dock icons! Where did you get them from, and how did you change them? Apologies if that sounds like a simple question, but I'm new to UI mods :)

    Most are stock Yosemite. The finder icon I found on deviantart. You will find it there if you search Uniq Finder icons. The folder icons are some I had from my Linux KDE days that I converted. I use Liteicon [search MacUpdate] app to change everything. It is a great little app....you just drag and drop and then logout for the changes to take place ;)

    This is probably not the final state of dark mode - they'll probably add more UI elements later.

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place, but I absolutely adore your wallpaper. Is there a chance you could provide a link to it? :)

    Dark mode menu text looks terrible, all jaggy, only looks anti aliased when you hover over. If they can improve that then I think it will look pretty cool. Wouldn't want to see everything in dark mode as I use the adobe Cc apps that are all dark mode and I think it would be hard to differentiate apps from system. Keep it to a minimum I say.

    "Dark Mode" to me feels very "KDE/GNOME" very cool.

    Is this enabled for all Macs that can run OS X Yosemite?
