  • +1 on Dark Mode before I go blind! Either that or provide special "Quicken" sunglasses or a braille version!

    I am actively seeking an alternative to Quicken. I am tired of needing sunglasses to balance my account. In todays market DARK MODE IS REQUIRED.
  • I'm tired of looking for the way to vote. So this post is my vote YES to fix Quicken to not have the glare of the sun blinding me while I try to balance my checkbook. PLEASE FIX THIS ANCIENT PROBLEM!

    Once they set the status to Planned, you can't vote on it anymore.

  • Dark mode please. Almost all Windows apps support this. Supposed to be in the roadmap since 2019. Now we are at the end of 2021 (2022 in 3 weeks).

    You stated 1 year and 4 months ago that this was a planned feature for Windows, but you had no ETA. Can we get an update? I use your app daily and find it TOO BRIGHT. Mac users have the option already.
  • +1 for the dark mode, please.

    Apparently it's in 'preview' for the Mac version? Patiently waiting for the Windows version - but I'm running out of patience.

  • Dark Mode... Please and Thank You.
    I think Quicken is the very last app that I use regularly, that *does not* yet have a Dark Mode.

    It seems they can't even enable it on this website.
    Quicken, get with the times, please!

    I got tired of waiting along with my eyes. I have a fix. I'm wearing my Oakley Bronze sunglasses and turned the brightness up a little. Works perfect! Remember to take them off immediately after signing off Quicken though, if you "subscribe" (no pun intended) to this process at night, be sure to take them off so you don't walk into a wall or fall down the stairs. I've held my breath long enough, as that also has started to B) affect my eyesight. Am thinking of starting deep sea diving lessons, as I can hold my breath for about 3 minutes now. Thank you Quicken!

    I'm learning about Dark Mode as a result of a recent retina problem with resulting partial loss of central vision in my good eye. I'm happy that Windows 11 supports Dark Mode, and my favorite text editor, and (sort of) Adobe Acrobat, which makes it much easier to work. But now at tax time I need to be reading Quicken screens a lot so I could really use it now! Using Gray background in Quicken for now.

    I have an eye condition that makes it difficult for me to read black text on light backgrounds. I desperately need a dark theme for Quicken.

    Dark mode is obviously not on Quicken's radar, even though everyone and their dog is clamoring for it. I can't wait until a viable replacement comes out and I can kick Quicken to the curb. It's obvious it runs on a legacy platform that is hard to upgrade, which is a shame. It used to be the gold standard of personal finance software, but they obviously haven't kept up with the times. I've had so many issues with it lately that I'm actively looking for a replacement.

    It is on their "radar", it even says that it is "Planned".  But I can tell you that with all the different APIs that Quicken is made up from all the different years it is a very difficult thing to do, and other problems could certainly have higher priority.

    As for finding a good replacement, good luck with that.  I have heard the same statement for 25 years.

    Wow - well, this is two years old - wanting Quicken to expend resources to implement Dark Mode support...
    I would personally prefer those same Quicken resources be deployed on FIXING the cultural errors that happen with every release and cause major bugs and corrupted data files......  
    So - Dark Mode vs an advanced working Validate & Repair - your choice - your vote -

    I'll take the fix., but have to ask, will there be a Baille version in the near future?
