Hello? :D I'm using Scrivener very usefully. and I often use dark themes. However, unlike the main editor, pdf does not have a dark theme. (For example, pdf-expert supports this.) Is it possible to apply dark theme to pdf? If not, do you plan to apply in the future?

Whatever voodoo pdf-expert did to get that done in a pleasing way, they would need to donate their results to Apple, and then Apple would have to agree it is a good idea, and then integrate it into their PDF display engine, which Scrivener, Quick Look, DEVONthink and thousands of other Mac programs make use of. Nobody writes their own PDF reader unless that is what they are making (and even then sometimes they don’t, like Skim, which works on top of Apple’s viewer). :)
