8.3.1 Didn't fix the desktop fonts!

Nice that 8.3.1 was released quickly .. but .. On mojave .. the desktop fonts still look dark black and blurry. In Pathfinder when you switch to dark mode, PF switches all of the fonts to being white (both in windows and on the desktop) which works well. The problem is when switching in PF to light mode which many of us prefer (including me .. the dark is not workable in my office environment), it switches ALL of the fonts to black which is fine in windows but not on the desktop. The fonts continue to be on the desktop blurry and bold looking in black when in light mode which they shouldn't be. Pathfinder needs to be able to have black fonts in windows in light mode while retaining the white fonts on the desktop or at minimum, a black font that's legible!

    If you turn off "use system colours" in Preferences -> Appearance, this will fix this.

    That'll work but only if you then don't want to ever use dark mode which, though, rare for me .. some will want to. When using the solution above it works until you switch over to dark mode in system preferences you end up with dark mode only partially working .. see screen shot .. as folders will still look mostly white. You then have to go back into PF preferences > appearance and re-check 'use system colors'. So yeah, that's a workaround but there's still a bug there on this issue.

    Agree, only a workaround, there are so many issue with this version of PF Im finding it very hard to use.

    Agreed. It's a bit buggier than I'm used to but hopefully they'll work it out soon. PF has been for a while now my go to desktop replacement. I don't want to have to stop using it.

    Agree too, turning off "use system colours" is only a workaround, the issue must be fixed.

    Why is this still not fixed? And why does the 'discussion' here keep getting closed and re-opened by support? This shouldn't be closed until a definitive fix is provided. Any updates on when we can expect this? It's clearly an issue - what's the delay?

    I too am having this problem. And I cannot see where 'use system colors' is in that pref/appearance menu?

    Having same issues as expressed above with 8.3.7 I was hoping the issue would have been fixed by now.
    But on reading this thread, why does the thread keep getting closed and reopened by support, is there a reason for this?
    Is there a fix coming soon in ver8 or is it being left till v9 ?

    This appears to be fixed now in 8.5.4. I gave up keeping track months ago, but when I check Use System Colors again now, it looks like it's working.
