Hi.

New to DW CC and saw the themes. I like the dark theme except that for some reason, if I open an existing file from my site, the background of the design view is dark grey making it hard to read the text etc. If I change the theme, it changes too. If I open a new page, it's fine. White background and everything else is dark.

Any idea on how to resolve this?

OK.   On latest version of DW CC 19.01, I can confirm that CSS background: transparent creates problems in Design view.  See screenshot.

However, there is no problem in Live view.

I almost never use background:transparent in my workflow.  Maybe that's why I never noticed this before.

FYI, the current CC version is 19.01.  You might want to update to the latest version.

I have not encountered any problems with page backgrounds in either dark or very dark interface themes.  My guess without more to go on is that you have code errors that need attention.  Or possibly, your document has a transparent CSS background.

I've confirmed it's the transparent layer in the css. However, I still have the question of why it is only affected on existing files and not new files that use the same template and css.

Oh well. At least it's fixed for now.

Thanks for the help.
