I uninstall it immediately after the new update. Also not working with classic editor. I recommended you switch to other plugin called "Dark Mode for WP Dashboard"

This used to be a dark mode feature plugin, but now it's been turned into a Markdown editor. A complete bait and switch.

I love it when they update something, everything else breaks down (because you use other plugins like 'Simple Editor' or other plugins) and you get things you don't need in return (just want dark mode NOT a Markdown Editor). So this will be a rollback or a plugin removal. Thanks for nothing.

Why would you completely change the plugin to be something totally different instead of just creating a NEW plugin? 🤨 🤦 This was supposed to be a dark-mode plugin, not a markdown plugin. ¬_¬ Now we have to roll back to version 3.3 to get the dark-mode back and have to forever try to remember to ignore this when updating plugins. 😒

Looks like I finally found the dark mode I am going to keep. This one just works out of the box.
