In revit 2024, it seems that conversion is possible with one click.

I heard that the UI was dark in the options and also added custom.

Archicad has dark mode, it just doesn’t work every well at the moment.

I know that mac supports dark mode.
I'd also like to know if it's a true dark mode.

Should Windows users use Windows 11's fake dark mode?
^^
I see an easy transition from revit 2024 and ah! I think it would be really nice to switch from time to time and use it.

Dark mode is really good to use while working to avoid eye fatigue from watching the monitor for a long time.

We hope to become a company that cares for people. ^^

 

Thank you for your comments.
Thank you for listening to my little voice. ^^

Hopefully with autotable announcing the feature for their upcoming version it will push Graphisoft to finalise it for Archicad. I’ve added a wish for dark mode to automatically turn the background of the main workspace window to a light/mid grey too or a user defined shade.

Only on Mac and only if you're willingto live with some weird tone combinations (with some stuff entirely not readable).

 

PC folks have nothing of the sort even while Windows has had a dark mode and theme since Windows 10.

 

Don't assume that just because you have it on Mac, it's available for other users as well (who actually copmrise the majority of ArchiCAD users).

It hurts me to hear you didn't want it.
I guess I'm getting old.
Please understand that the white color is very tiring for the eyes. ^^

ArchiCAD having dark mode or a native dark theme doesn't mean that the rest of us who prefer the traditional white mode won't have that mode anymore.

 

It would just be an option to choose whether you want it or not.

It not an Either/Or.

 

Don't those of us who want it at least deserve the choice?

Sure, of course we should all have a choice.

I was just replying (tongue in cheek - hence the shocked/astonished emoji) that we don't all want it.

At least I don't, but maybe I am the odd one out.
