Artboards pasteboard background color

Recommended Posts

Since there is no update on this issue, I'd like to necro bump this.


The whole UI is too dark to have such bright surface surrounding the document. Please let us toggle a full dark mode or something while using Artboards!


The current workaround is to draw a huge rectangle, colour it dark grey, and then lock it so I can't accidentally click it. It just feels odd I gotta extend the UI's theme manually.

Yeah, I agreed with this too.

The artboards mode behaves too much differently from the normal canvas mode. I read on the another thread (closed) that is done by design, hopefully this could be changed in future, I dislike the fact of looking (always) the artboard labels and artboard canvas stroke, none of that happens on a normal canvas (no artboard); this is more annoying when you are on full screen with all UI hiden, where you can still see the artboards labels and artboard canvas stroke, which sometimes distract you a bit from the actual design.

Been able to customize these setting will be good plus.
