Dark Interface (overall UI including side panels)

The option for a darker interface like Photoshop and Illustrator would be great, especially when working at night.

        This is getting ridiculous. this feature has been requested for over 3 years now! Adobe, what the actual fuck???

        Please can you add a Dark UI mode to XD ? I have a a 5K monitor with plenty of extra space and the white and light grey has almost burnt through my retina... Cheers !

        I found a hidden XD dark theme and a way to enable it. I posted instructions here on my GitHub: https://github.com/cgio/darkxd.

        I believe I may be the first to do this, but I haven't looked in depth. Hopefully it works for you :) Feel free to star it, if so.

        Martin Klausen... either you're trolling or you're amongst the really few privileged kind of persons that dont get retinal burns while working with this kind of UIs at night. Look at all the other comments, the mob wants dark mode.

        Dark mode is pretty low on my wish list. So many other features that should be prioritised imo... (flexible symbols, versioning, getting auto animate to the web protos etc)

        Literally the only reason why I don't use XD is because it has no dark mode.

        At least open up the interface for the development community so someone can make a plugin already.

        What? They don't think switching UI from light to dark is an important feature for visual design? What industry do they think they are in? Not a visual creative one, that's for sure!

        I feel this is a must have feature, we are in 2019 now, most all applications are getting on board with what we as users want. YouTube has a dark mode, many other sites, many programs. Just give us the option.

        Adobe keeps saying that this doesn't seem like an important feature to them because they would rather focus on a more functional feature. but when im using Adobe XD about 6 hours a day throughout the whole week, it does damage your eyes when everything is too bright and white,

        please Adobe, I know you are better than this, you know damn well designers prefer dark mode, and that it is the trend now due to it being an accessibility feature for busy nights. anyway, hope you reflect on the error of your ways
