Can’t see scrollbar when default theme's color scheme is opposite of iOS / iPadOS light/dark mode

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open any long note on iOS or iPadOS.
  2. Make sure you’re using the default Obsidian theme and your device is in light mode (or automatic mode when it’s during the day).
  3. Notice that because the scrollbar is dark, you can’t see it.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?


Expected result

The scrollbar should always be light when using the default Obsidian theme (or any dark theme) so it’s visible.

Actual result

The scrollbar is dark and therefore not visible.


Operating system: ios 16.6.1 (Apple iPad)
Obsidian version: 1.4.8 (107)
API version: v1.3.7
Login status: not logged in
Live preview: off
Legacy editor: off
Base theme: dark
Community theme: none
Snippets enabled: 0
Restricted mode: on


Additional information

Notice that if you put your device in dark mode, the scrollbar becomes visible (because it becomes light).

Confirmed — thanks.

I changed the title to specify that the problem occurs in the default theme’s dark color scheme. (Was “Can’t see scrollbar on iOS and iPadOS when using the default theme with the OS light mode”.)

Actually, the problem also occurs in dark mode when the theme is set to the light color scheme. Changed title again (was “Can’t see scrollbar in default theme’s dark color scheme when using iOS / iPadOS light mode”).
