Automatic dark mode based on system settings

I quite like how macOS changes appearance based on time of day and how most of applications can be configured to follow that and toggle dark mode automatically.

I wish Marked2 allowed this too.

Toggling "High Contrast" automatically might be a reasonable first approximation.

    Created an account to submit this very thing, found this existing thread that's disappointingly almost 3 years old. Most apps do this by now, even non-native Electron apps like Slack. It'd be nice if Marked did the same. It's the only app I have on my computer that I still need to toggle manually between day & night mode.

    The window chrome changes, just not the style. All of Marked's export
    options are dependent on the current Style. Do you really want your PDFs
    to be in dark mode when you export them?

    Switching all windows to High Contrast mode is a keyboard shortcut away,
    but for reasonable rendering of documents for export and sharing, dark
    mode is a choice you'll have to make intentionally.
