Schrodinger’s terminal

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 4:57 pm

A few days ago I noticed that my MacBook terminals switched only the foreground text color but not the background color during automatic switching between the light and dark appearance modes, making most of the texts invisible.
After some investigation, I realized that it was caused by my prior manual tuning of the terminal background color, which MacOS then kept fixing regardless of the appearance modes.
The problem can be fixed by reverting to the original default.
