Layer detail background color

You can control the preview background color in the layer detail from both the Comment and Inspect tabs when viewing your layer to create a better contrast with your designs.

The default state is auto, which means Abstract uses the appearance settings you have set for your system. For example, if your system settings are set to dark mode, your layer background is also be set to dark. You can also choose either a light or dark background in your layer detail.

This setting is persistent across projects.
