I think it might be nice to see Shark / VC 11 with an optional Dark Mode to match Mojave.

Lately I've been working on a black workspace in Shark – a background color I used to hate – but have grown to feel comfortable in.

It seems to really help my eyes especially after many hours.

But I realize that might entail having to redesign a bunch of tool icons and stuff.. so probably not gonna happen. :D

All modern software has dark UI. I have only two light-skinned dinosaurs: CorelDraw X8 and SharkCAD. :)
Dark interface is really less tedious for the eyes.

Agreed! Much easier to focus and less strain. White = too much light.

Actually, Corel Draw X8 has a dark mode.

Played around with it briefly but I agree, it might be an interesting option to look into.

too bad coreldraw has no mac version. After Adobe bought and shelved Freehand from Macromedia the only good vector drawing tool I’ve ever found is Affinity Designer. And it is indeed very good. Adobe is not nearly as relevant as it once was in my opinion. Anyway sorry I know that’s off topic.

Sorry, you're right. I have X8 Special Edition. This version has only a light UI. Whatever I use it very rarely. :)

P.S.
Dark UI and advanced shading would be very very cool.
