Dark Mode


McRey

Question

I really love Vectorworks and my boss is paying so much for the program. But could you please PLEASE release a dark mode option for Mac and Windows User?

It's so unhuman to work with the white and bright Vectorworks. My eyes are burning 🙄

Bump to request Dark Mode implementation for Windows users...pretty please?

 

A lot of the v2020/2021 icons have poor readability in light mode & I'd like to at least give them a chance in dark mode. (This is one of the contributing factors to why our engineering office is still primarily deploying v2018.)

Still no dark mode for Windows in VW2022? 😞

 

Looks like some of my other previous Windows bug reports which have kept us from upgrading have gone unaddressed as well...

Disappointing.

@Bret can you send me a file to work with? I'm not seeing the same thing and I'd like to figure out what's going on for you.

Hi Rick,

 

Thanks for checking in - I appreciate it.

 

This happens in every file if GDI+ Imaging is turned off, and we generally leave it turned off because it creates text rendering problems with our key .pdf print driver. (We're a structural engineering firm that primarily uses 2d tools and doesn't rely on transparency, gradients, renderings, etc. in our plans.)

 

The file I took that screenshot from was a new one that had nothing else in it but that text block. I noticed this error and emailed a bug report last year (followed up with another one earlier today), but it seems that it's been this way since at least VW2020. VW2018 does not have this issue.

 

I'm happy to go through this more with you and would love to see this fixed, although it would be best to shift to email or create another thread so as to not hijack this one further.
