When will the dialog boxes for Open, Save, etc. use the dark mode UI in the Mac OS? It appears that Photoshop has implemented this change (screenshot attached), when will Illustrator?

Hey Ali,

Thank you for your reply. Yes, the UI section of the preferences does allow you to change the UI of Illustrator to a darker theme. My question was related to the Open and Save dialog boxes and if they will match the dark UI of the operating system for Mac OS Catalina. Here is a screenshot to display the Save dialog box. This is not a dark theme to match the system UI, however, Photoshop does (here are the screenshots while using the dark mode UI in Adobe and in the Mac OS Catalina).Adobe IllustratorAdobe IllustratorAdobe PhotoshopAdobe Photoshop

I have wondered the same thing. Odd how the open and save dialogues don't behave the same way as PhotoShop's. Seems like a simple fix, no?

Please post a bug report to Uservoice (see URL in my post above)

 

You might want to detail what exactly you don't like. Also: maybe your monitor is just too dark on your Mac?
