If you have installed the 8.0 R2023-04 Studio monthly update or a later one provided by Talend, Talend Studio supports the dark theme, also known as the dark mode, which displays mostly dark surfaces across the UI and helps reduce eye strain.

  • The dark theme will be improved continuously in future releases.
  • Talend Studio provides options of enabling theme and changing between dark and light themes. The options are only applied on your current workspace.
  • For Linux and MacOS, the dark theme in Talend Studio is automatically enabled based on the system theme preference.
