Dark Mode

Please add a toggle for Dark Mode as Alteryx, after all these years of using it, is burning out my retinas. 

 

The OS and most apps have a Dark Mode theme so flipping back to a bright white canvas is very jarring.  I tried to adjust the canvas colors in a more muted way but never can get it to work satisfactorily and still be as easy to read as the retina burning default.

What are the Designer Release notes for 2020.1 referring to when it says using Designer in Dark Mode.  As in there is a Dark Mode available?

Hi @mbogusz!

 

Apologizes for the confusion, we actually misspoke on the Release Notes and are having that fixed. We currently do not have a Dark Mode for Designer, this particular point is referring to the ability for a user to have better text visibility when they change their canvas color to a darker color through the options.

Couldnt believe there is no such option. Hope you will find time to add it soon.

Would love a dark mode.  As I get older (wiser), black font on white background is getting harder to read.  Much prefer white font on black background.

Also would desperately prefer a dark mode. Alteryx is pretty much the only application I'm using that doesn't.

 

Thanks!
