Exclamation Bug: Dark Mode (Windows) Book Details Pop-Up Cover Background Not Changing to Dark

Hi,

This one I am certain is pretty simple. Dark mode seems to be working fine all around inside Calibre - with one exception.

The Book Info window - the Pop-up - not the one on the main GUI - is remaining light (white) for the background of the cover whereas everything else is changing to the dark mode color. While the cover background on the main GUI pane for Book Info is changing to the corresponding dark/light mode.

I was trying to share a screenshot to illustrate the above - but I don't seem to know how to do so. I thought it was pretty straightforward - but it doesn't like my images.

Also on a side note - re: Dark Mode in Windows - it would also probably be good to have the top window bar change to a dark bar in dark mode - to go with the rest of the window.

I think although my images may not be showing in the thread - that they can be followed as a link.

In Advanced mode click the paperclip icon, after you've uploaded the images, you can click it again and you get a list of them, if you don't embed them in your post they'll be attached - either is fine by us.

I am able to confirm this.

I may be misremembering (or conflating it with ebook-viewer's image viewer) but I seem to remember a few versions ago it had a grey background instead of white.
