XD dark mode still NOT available

I'm a Creative Suite subscriber, and have been for more than a decade. About three years ago I installed XD on my Windows PC and bought an online course to get up to speed. The instructor was using a Mac, and showed how easy it was to change the default UI from gray text on a white background to dark mode (as I do with all other Adobe applications). However, the UI is different on Windows compared to Mac, and there's no way to set XD to dark mode. Gray text on a white background causes eye strain, and I immediately dumped XD as an unusable tool for my requirements.

 

A request for dark mode for XD has apparently been active since 2016. This makes me wonder whether the developers are listening or whether they are some sort of Mac snobs. Why would the UI be different on Windows compared to use on a Mac platform? Will users on Windows ever be able to set XD preferences to dark mode?

This has been talked about since 2016, with thousands of votes and no real response unfortunately. I recently installed it because my Sketch licence ran out and was going to switch to XD. I'd rather pay for a software that the devs actually respond to the community. It's a sad sight that most companies developed a dark mode before it was released to the public in macOS, but for some reason this one is being ignored. Probably because it's free. 

 

For those interested, here's the request from 2016: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12940362-dark-interface-overall-ui-including-side-panels
