Minor issue: "Show debug info" has wrong "base theme" info when "base theme" set to "adapt to system" and system in dark mode

Summary: Obsidian is behaving correctly, but I noticed that “show debug info” has some wrong information.

Steps to reproduce

In Appearance, set “Base Theme” to “Adapt to System”. Close Obsidian. Set system-wide setting to dark mode. Re-open Obsidian and observe that Obsidian correctly loads in dark mode. Then use “Show debug info” from command palette and observe “Base theme” setting.

Expected result

When Obsidian is in dark mode because “adapt to system” setting is turned on and system is in dark mode, the “Base theme:” field of “Show debug info” would either reflect the actually used theme (“dark”) or say “adapt to system”.

Actual result

Base theme field says “light”.


  • Operating system: Windows 10/11
  • Debug info:
    Obsidian version: v0.14.15
    Installer version: v0.14.15
    Operating system: Windows 10 Home 10.0.22000
    Login status: not logged in
    Insider build toggle: off
    Live preview: on
    Legacy editor: off
    Base theme: light
    Community theme: none

Additional information

Again, Obsidian is correctly loading the theme I want, just the “show debug info” is wrong. But I thought you might want to know about this in case it helps with other bug reports!
