- Switch Obsidian to dark mode
- Write some text that includes backtick-delimited sections or triple-backtick sections, like
- Export to PDF
- Open the PDF and notice that the backtick-delimited sections all have a dark background, even on the white background of the paper. This makes them very difficult to read.
Text content in
backticks should have a background color similar to the background color of the PDF “paper” so it’s easy to read. When doing the PDF export from Obsidian’s light mode, the
backticks text is a pleasant light grey color.
The text in
backticks is on a black background. Overall, it’s a white “sheet of paper” in the PDF, with a black rectangle as the
backticks text background, and red text written on it. It’s quite difficult to read.

Here’s a screenshot from a document I wrote in dark mode and exported to PDF.
It gives me “top secret” vibes because the dark rectangles on light background look like redactions
Here’s a screenshot from the same portion of the document, but exported to PDF from light mode instead.
Thanks for making Obsidian! I recently discovered it, and I keep finding new things it’s good at helping me do!
