This feature is probably the oldest and most popular feature I’ve seen in the community forum. It’s pretty frustrating…seems like katalon staff keep ignoring it!

are you lazy to pimp your settings?

Let’s compare Eclipse and Katalon Studio to see how much of theming capablities are featured.

The following screenshot shows an example of Eclipse Photon, Window > Preferences > Appearances. As you can see in the dialog, you can choose Dark theme just easily.

On the other hands, the following screenshot shows an example of Katalon Studio 5.9.1, Window > Preferences > Apperances. The dialog is designed differently from Eclipse Photon. You can not choose any built-in theme.

I suppose Katalon Studio need to be migrated to newer version of Eclipse platform so that Katalon obtains the benefit of built-in Theming feature of Eclipse. I guess it is a tough task.

+1 to add the Theme dropdown to easily choose different themes to Katalon Studio.
