How do you turn on the dark mode for QGIS 3.6.1? I see where people have an option in the general settings of the Project Properties menu, but I am not seeing that option in my version.

    You don't have the option under Settings > General > UI Theme > Night Mapping?

    That was it! I was looking in the project properties menu.

    Another alternative is this plugin plugins.qgis.org/plugins/LoadQSS! You don't need to restart! DISCLAIMER: I'm the author

When you open Settings->Options->General you should see Night Mapping.

You need to exit and restart to see the change.

  • This works well for my Windows machine, although does not appear to work with my Mac. I'm running 3.10.4 on both machines.
