With the latest OS X for Apple Macs, comes an interesting new feature called 'Dark Mode'. This allows the user to choose a darker system-wide appearance instead of the classic white.
Due to this feature, white colours turn to grey or black and dark colours turn to white or grey as a result.
This can cause an issue with the signature templates, when viewed in Apple Mail.
Some information to take note when designing signatures are noted below:
When using background colours, white can become black and black can become white, as though they are inverted. Anything off white can become grey. Any other colour will remain true.
Similar to background colours, font colours can also impact the signature design. Black text will automatically turn to white when viewing the signature in the Dark Mode feature, however any other colour will stay the same - e.g. red, blue green etc. will remain true.
When using background images, this will render the signature as a bitmap. Unfortunately, this will embed the font colours used in the signature, as en example black text will stay black and will not automatically change to the white as per the Dark Mode behaviour.
If you need to use a background image please bear this in mind, perhaps you may be able to adapt this to be a few embedded or hosted images in the design.
Similar to using Background Images, Custom fonts will also render as a bitmap when uploaded into the signature template and used. This will also embed the colour used and will not adapt.
If you would like the text to adapt to the Dark Mode, then opt for a Font Stack instead.
