I installed LibreOffice today to try it out on my Windows machine. I was very sad to find out it doesn't have a dark mode. Currently I use Office 365 on my PC, only because my college tuition covers the costs, but after I graduate I need an alternative, and I want it to be LibreOffice. Unfortunately, I cannot work without a dark mode, as it strains my eyes. I am sure you implementing this would help many Windows users switch to using this Office suite, so please consider it.

Already implemented as an experimental feature for nightly builds against the 7.4 release [1]:

1.) Tools -> Options -> Advanced 'Enable Experimental Features'

2.) Tools -> Options -> View

   -- set a "Dark" icon theme, e.g. 'Colibre (Dark)', or 'Colibre (SVG + Dark)'

3.) Tools -> Options -> Application Colors

   -- set the ColorScheme to "LibreOffice Dark" 

Already functional, but the multi-step configuration may be streamlined for its final release.

Please take it out for a test drive...
