I'm doing a dark interface for a program that includes a text editor. While the program uses different shades of dark grey and blue, my main "page" is currently white. This is positive because:
- The page looks exactly like the printed version will;
- The text editor looks like famous text editors in the market.
The problem is that the program needs to be dark because it's going to be used in dark rooms so it has to be extremely kind to the eyes, and white is not.
The options I have are grey and black. I'm thinking I'd go with black, because even if looks bad it's better for the eyes, and printing is not something users would be doing a lot, at least not directly. Is this the right call?
