minor UI stuff :)
Hi there

1. can we have a securecrt that honours dark mode settings in the OS (if it doesnt already)

2. since some update, the default font on the mac in securecrt in session manager and the menus inside say options, seems wrong to me. Somehow dark black/bold and out of place.
Are those fonts configurable and if so I guess I could've changed them? if they're not, did you change them in some release or am I just imagining it (which is totally possible)

Hi keithop,

1. Dark mode currently is not supported, however I have created a feature request on your behalf in our product enhancement database to add dark mode support for SecureCRT on macOS. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include *"Feature Request - Forum Thread #13372"* in the subject line

2. Can you please tell me more about the update that you mentioned? Did you update SecureCRT from an older version? If so which version of SecureCRT were you running before? What version of SecureCRT do you currently have installed?

Thanks, dark mode support would be nice :)

In terms of the fonts, turns out it's the latest silly idea from Mojave :( once again Apple not caring about non-retina displays:-

so sorry for the false report on that one

Hi keithop,

No problem! I am glad to hear that you were able to determine what was causing the font display issue!

Thank you for sharing the link! And we will be sure to let you know if support for Dark Mode is added!
