Dark Theme doesn't properly theme the UI


Recommended Posts

We have in mind to improve the dark themes. All backgrounds should be dark.

This implies refactoring colors and redoing all the light and dark themes. Not a short task, since plastic is a wide application with lots of screens and dialogs, but doable.

We're starting the development of the next GUI (called GUI 9 internally) in the next weeks. We expect having time to refactor the dark theme and implement a proper one.

Ok July 2021 now, where is the Dark Mode?
In the Plasitc SCM UI, I went to preferences -> Theme and selected: Montana Dark
This is not a dark theme, background is near white and glaring. Not cool :(
Please show that you care for your users and PRIORITIZE THIS.

We are working a new multiplatform GUI. It should ease the development of a modern dark theme taht works both for Windows, macOS and Linux.

Hopefully we have good new soon. I'm sharing your request with the product team.

Can we have an ETA on this feature?

I know it may seem like a detail but this is not just an aesthetic choice. Every other tools around cinema and video games are using a dark theme because it goes with the territory.

A white interface like plastic may not be noticeable to you but for many of us it's like driving at night with a satnav that doesn't have a night theme.
