Saving/Exporting a Onenote Page to a PDF in darkmode

Sergio M 1 Reputation point

So the other day, I saved a page from OneNote as a PDF to send to a friend. When I saved it, I noticed it saved in the dark mode theme that I have my OneNote set to. Since then, I have not replicated that process, and I have no idea how I did it.
I have no intention of printing the file, but saving the file in dark mode makes the graphs stand out a lot more.
How do I intentionally save a file in dark mode?
I have attached a screenshot of the PDF when I saved the file. The actual PDF file will not upload here for some reason.

    Hi @Sergio M ,
    In my opinion, this setting is related to application but not the file. As a workaround, I suggest you can try to set the black picture as a background in OneNote and then save/export as PDF.
