DARK THEME IN WINDOWS AS WELL?

This isn't just a night owls/dark room thing. I regularly prefer non-white backgrounds while working during the day in a regularly lit room. Evernote offers so much; but not so much as one alternate theme? SERIOUSLY?

Please implement this ASAP. It can't possibly be much work in the scheme of things.

I suppose we're not. If there are real 2nd class citizens here, that would be the Linux folks. haha

But we're paying (at least I was, formerly) the same amount as Mac users. And we're here left to hang yet again. For something that's been requested for at least 5 years now you'd think they'd have plenty of time to release dark mode for everyone. Instead they keep on pushing these features that would make evernote a powerpoint competitor instead of a note-taking program. Take it as you will.

And I have a sense of perspective in this and that's within the Evernote environment. I don't need to look around the world to feel like the company doesn't value me as much as other users. What do you call someone who pays (again, formerly) the same amount for the same thing and gets less than everyone else? Where are the timelines? Even a vague promise? A shot-in-the-dark date that says "we'll release dark mode on Windows in 2020 or something"? I'm sure there's a lot of work involved in it but a dark mode isn't exactly cutting edge technology that needs years to develop. They obviously have priorities and I know people want to think we're all equal here but that's not how I'm feeling it. I'm glad you're contented with how Evernote is taking care of you but I'm not. And I'm sure I'm not alone with this.

But yeah, I AM making this sound so grave so sorry for that. It's just a dark mode after all. Dark mode was just a nice-to-have feature for such a long time and now that it's come and there are no indications that it will come to Windows too, coupled with the fact that Evernote closed that other thread just like that, it gets frustrating.

This needs to happen for Windows users.  Great that Dark Theme is out for Android, iOS, OSX, but still missing for Windows.  Evernote is the ONLY app in my workflow that doesn't support dark mode in Windows. A lot of the "duplicate threads" also requesting this seem to now be deleted. Please make this happen.

Really sucks to be 2nd class citizens, no? The way Evernote closed the 5-year old thread even though Windows users are still waiting (you wouldn't close the thread if dark mode was only released on iOS, no?) and how ambiguous the help article regarding Dark Mode on Windows is (not even a promise that it's coming or that they're working on it, it just says "got better things to do") implies Evernote thinks their work is done here. We're probably gonna get it too but we can probably expect in the same 5 year time frame I guess. We're just not that much of a priority.

Mac people though, ah, they gotta get those Bear and Omnifocus users. Windows users aren't going anywhere anyway, no?

I think we're pretty much the same priority as everyone else - but desktop users have things that mobile users don't,  Androids do different things than IOS,  and Macs and Windows users always think the other OS is doing better.  It would be nice to have the dark theme,  but - if you were reading all the posts - the Windows team don't seem to have the same kind of flexibility in the OS that Macs have.  Maybe they're waiting for the OS to catch up...

Implement Dark Theme, Please!!

Do you need me to change the colors in the web CSS style sheet?

Feel free to mail me if you need the hex triplets!

It not just closing the issue , it's also redirecting me ones to another post when I asked about windows.they are completely unaware and ignorant about windows,I guess they have too much money to spare for buying overpriced macs only I guess. 

Blaming windows flexibility is not a good idea , iOS has not reached anywhere close to windows flexibility, So there is no catch up to do.

Evernote codes itself shows it's been coded to white background for windows, there is work around hack available for the same which is litterally to change the hex code.

It's just.that more poorer who can't afford Macs overpricing tend to use windows,And we are in the blind spot. Evernote thinks that ignoring windows is a calculated risk to otherwise putting feature ( workload ). Well may be they are wrong. I already moved my stuff's to Zoho notebooks, works well and they are putting out a Windows version too, at least they hear customers. 

By end of this year I'll be moving out completely , thank you Evernote , it was nice having you and making life easier.

I mainly use a Mac as a desktop computer and Windows when mobile with a laptop. Dark mode is great on the eyes however changing font color of a block of text on the mac (usually a light shade to contrast nicely with the dark background) makes reading that text on Wndows really difficult because you end up with light font on white background. If Windows also had dark mode I could use colored fonts on the Mac without this hassle.

Congratulations to all you Mojave Mac users out there, you have something we all want; A Dark Mode! Meanwhile, in the Windows world, our eyes still bleed. 

According to an official statement, you are working on other things, but we think you should be working on this dark mode thing, as it's still the most requested feature. 

The original thread for a dark theme has been locked but this feature has not been implemented for a large section of your customer base. So let us reiterate; 

Evernote Wizards. 

Please, give windows users a dark theme.

 

Best Regards,

Your Paying Customer

Honestly, look around the world. Get a sense of perspective. We are not second class citizens in any sense of the words.

How to use dark mode in Windows.

 

While pressing Windows Key, press three times + in the numeric keypad.

It is not ideal, but it works. Takes time to get used to it, but it works. It is not beautiful, a bit psychedelic, and it works.

So when I first started using evernote on windows, the interface was gray.  And it didn't bother me that there was no dark theme for evernote because most of the interface was dark enough.  The web version was much darker too.  At some point a design decision to go with bright white was made, and I can't fathom why.

When I first started trying out Windows 10, one of my chief complaints was that there was no dark theme.  While I do not entertain the notion that people care much about what I think, I think it's fair to point out that there was market pressure enough to have Apple and Microsoft each develop dark themes for their respective OS's.  When Android was a newer thing and it was popular to root ones device, one of the chief reasons to do so was to apply a dark theme.  Almost every development IDE comes with a dark theme.

It should not be surprising that given my love of customization, I used to run a linux desktop.  I'd peruse the internet and see the other customizations others had made to their compiz desktops etc....  It should come as no surprise given the theme that I'm working on here, that most people used some sort of dark theme. 

My point here is that I feel that this is a significant enough point to the user base of a lot of software applications, not just evernote, that I am slightly stunned that the effort has not been put in.  I think that evernote is otherwise the best note taking app I've ever used, and would love to see this small trifle dealt with.

Also, since the service is subscription based, it would also be nice if there were a version available for linux too.

Dark Theme on mobile device is AWESOME.

Really feeling eye strain on desktop/windows with all that white blaring at me.  

Please add dark theme color stream to app/CSS for windows too.

thank you!

I have been using dark theme in Evernote for IOS for a while now and want to do the same in Windows 10 but I can find the command to execute this.

There's a dark theme for the left column...is it possible there's no option for the whole app to go dark yet?

Hello, I wonder if there is any news or work going on to implement dark mode for evernote desktop? Evernote has been always integral part of my thinking and work process. However, I recently shifted to work late at night and usually keep dark mode on for my PC. But whenever I needed to switch to evernote for note taking or for any reason, the white brightness is very disturbing. I would be delighted if Evernote team consider implementing Dark mode for Evernote.

Thank you

Do you have dark mode or night mode on your PC? Maybe that would do something, or you could alter the brightness.

Seems a little unusual to go so long without either beta or regular updates, maybe they are finally going to release dark mode soon?  We'll see.

Use the More Tools > Create Shortcut in Chrome for when logged in to your web account (might need to quickly create the shortcut while the page is loading for https://www.evernote.com/Home.action).

Then add a dark mode reader for Chrome like Dark Reader.

Customize colors as desired.

Yes, and duplicates will keep on appearing on this forum until Evernote gives the majority of their paying users a dark theme.

Sure, and w can keep merging them into the main request as needed, since they're not really adding any new information, just more votes. *shrug*

You should also read the following thread (Evernote employee @dconnet's replies in particular):

we need dark mode. We've needed it for years. no excuse as to why it's not here yet. I haven't noticed a single other new feature or performance enhancement, so I haven no idea what they're working on.

The guy who actually built the current release has explained that there's no way to use the current code base to invoke a 'dark' option in the current Windows code base. 

So Evernote would need to rewrite the application from the ground up to deliver a dark mode.

That rewrite has actually been started (although I don't know whether a Dark Mode is one of the immediate priorities)

It won;t happen overnight either way.
