Desktop Settings

Since OS X 11.3 my QCAD desktop 3.23 does odd things. The tool buttons often become grey and the ruler numbers white. How do I reset them / stop this.

This can happen in older versions of QCAD when switching between light and dark mode of macOS while QCAD is running.

You could force QCAD to run in light mode all the time or upgrade your QCAD to the latest version which has this switching implemented.
