Cmd R Reload + Transparency Plugin on macOS Mojave causes Obsidian to become brighter

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set Transparency Plugin
  2. Cmd + R reload

Expected result

Expected that the app would reload with no significant changes to themes (and this happens with no custom css)
Here is what it is suppose to look like:

Actual result

Obsidian becomes whiter and fainter that goes away once I manually close and open the app. This happens on both dark and light mode.

Here is a picture of dark mode after the bug occurs:


  • Operating system: macOS Mojave Version 10.14.6
  • Obsidian version: 0.9.15
