Finder window (Save As/Export, etc) show up in light color even though the system/app theme is dark

I know its not a huge issue but as a designer its a little irritating. When running under the darkest theme in Illustrator and Indesign the open, save, export, and place dialogues are all in light themes even with the OS in Dark mode. All of the dialouges in Photoshop however show up dark.

Having Ashtuosh (an Adobe employee) on this thread is helpful, but I recommend filing a bug report for both apps:

 

If you come back here and post the links, I will vote for them.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. You can always change the color theme of InDesign under Preferences > Interface.

I have also attached a screenshot as well for reference.

Hope it helps.

Hi Ashutosh:

 

I think the OP is pointing out that even with the dark interface selected, those four specific dialog boxes are still light. I have my Mac in dark mode as well as InDesign in dark mode and those dialog boxes don't honor it. It bothers me as well—my eyes are very sensitive to light.

Hi Barb,

 

Thanks you so much for reaching out and highlighting this. I understand your concern but this is an expected behavior in all Adobe Applications (even with PS).

I will pass on this feedback to our Product team and you could you also post it on our UserVoice page and paste the link here, so that others can also upvote this request. 

 

Regards,

Srishti

Can we get an update on this as it was 7 months ago, and Dark Mode in MacOS was released widespread 2.5+ years ago.

 

Yet this still doesn't work, and nothing has been communicated to users.

 

We expect more from an industry leader in creative software.

Hi Srishti:

 

Oddly, Photoshop honors the dark interface for those dialog boxes.

It has gotten even worse.

In the latest version of InDesign (16.01) the dialog boxes do not remember resizing, and always appear in default size.

They are still white even if the Dark mode is enabled in system and Indesign has dark interface.

It seems that the focus in Adobe software development is not on usability that such a basic things can not be fixed for so long time. Stop developing all those new marketing features and concentrate on making everything you have crammed into your programs work, so that they become usable for real work again.

 

BTW with latest 2 updates I have had hundreds of crashes with basic functions, way more than in previous years combined. Indesign has become a major obstacle on getting my work done in time.
