OSCAR workaround for Mac OS Dark Mode
#1
OSCAR workaround for Mac OS Dark Mode
I have seen a few questions pertaining to this, so I figured this might be helpful.   There is a workaround that allows you to keep OS X dark mode ON, but selectively force Oscar to use the standard light style.   In order to do so, you must be familiar with (or at least comfortable using) terminal. 
  1. Close Oscar (not minimized).
  2. Open Terminal by either using spotlight (CMD-space) and typing 'terminal', or by navigating to terminal.app in the finder (Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app). 
  3. Once you have launched terminal, enter the following command and press enter (you can copy and paste the following):  
Code:
defaults write org.oscar-team.OSCAR  NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool yes

You can exit terminal and re-launch Oscar.  You will notice that all other apps and the OS are still in dark mode, but Oscar is now "light" and displays the correct contrast. 

To reset this for any reason (if Oscar begins to support dark mode) simply re-open terminal and type + enter:

Code:
defaults delete org.oscar-team.OSCAR NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance

In order for the reset to take effect, you need to quit and re-launch OSCAR.

Thanks for the work around. I had no issues when applying it. OSCAR runs in light mode while my Mac is running in dark mode.
