Activate dark mode in the mac app

Abstract’s dark mode is linked to your System Preferences. Switch on the system-wide Dark Appearance in Mojave, Catalina, or Big Sur to activate Abstract’s dark mode.

To activate dark mode:

  1. Open your System Preferences
  2. Select General
  3. Next to Appearance, select Dark.

Abstract will now appear in dark mode.

  1. Navigate to the Abstract web app.
  2. In the left side navigation, click your username.
  3. In the menu, select Appearance and then Dark.
