I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have further questions or need any assistance.
When Moneydance 2019 was in Beta testing, Dark Mode proved to be rather problematic, to the point of being unusable much of the time - bit hard to use when you cannot read some screen elements, hence why the settings for it are forced and cannot be changed by the user.
If you are feeling adventurous you need to start with one of the other themes and make up your own "Dark Mode".
Tagging on, it might be good to have a few more preset themes. When customising the colours etc, I'm never sure exactly which fields I'm tinkering with - then each time I have to exit MD and go back in again, just to see what's changed, only to find it's not what I wanted. Or perhaps a preview of a standard 'view' which you could see change as you make the adjustments WITHOUT having to re-start MD?
