I would like to see a full dark theme for studio, that changes windows, title bars, menus, buttons, project view, module browser, test suite view, properties, and any other elements of Ranorex Studio to a dark theme with white or syntax colorized text. Not just the code editor, but all of Ranorex Studio should be able to be set to "dark theme". I use the dark theme for Visual Studio, and would like the same for Ranorex Studio.
Ranorex is constantly working to turn Ranorex Studio into a dark theme. Since this is a huge effort, we do this step by step.
Take a look at the Ranorex Studio 8.2, which will be released soon. Even more parts have turned dark.
I am closing this idea because we are one it and this will take some more time.

Note that by going to 'Tools | Options | Text Editor | Highlighting' you can change the appearance of the editor. See for example https://studiostyl.es/ for inspiration or you can even download a complete style.

The editor still isn't dark in 8.2 though. Is there an ETA for making a proper dark themse?
Sarah W commented
I would really appreciate this too. Much kinder on the eyes!

Please make it configurable.
I can not see anything in dark themes.
Please let us choose between a new "cool" theme and the old eyefriendly and useful one

Kelly is right, applying a dark theme on SharpDevelop is kind of hard to do. But I can tell you, with Ranorex 8.0 we are moving closer to a dark theme.

Yeah! give it

Give us the dark theme :)
Completely agree! Dark themes have been shown to be better on the eyes for long-term viewing and every other major IDE has theme support.
The problem is that Ranorex may not be able to do anything about it because they are building on top of SharpDevelop, and it does not support themes.
