Even if there is no global setting for dark mode in Octave's options, there are already options to change the color scheme for several widgets in the preferences. Look for checkboxes labeled "Second color mode (light/dark)" on the different tabs of the preferences.

Slightly changing the scope of this report to a feature request for a global setting to change the color mode in the preferences and/or for using the respective OS setting as a default.

Visual bug: no dark mode even if OS is using dark mode.  Difficult to see white screen at night.
