Dark Mode for Adobe Acrobat Pro on MacOS Mojave
Dark Mode. Just flip the white to black and vica versa. Put the option in View-->Dark Mode
I understand your concern and we are working to make a better experience for our customer. I believe that this resolved your issue.
Feel free to contact us is there is any issue.
You can find this a few places on the web, but since this seems to be the top hit when I searched I thought I would add it here as I think it addresses the original request.
1. Open Adobe Reader, go to Edit menu & select Preferences from the drop-down. Preferences window will pop up on the screen.
2. Choose Accessibility from the Categories section.
3. Now check the Replace Document Color box.
4. In front of Custom Color Please change the Page Background to Black & Text Document to White.
5. Click OK to confirm the changes.
Thanks for pointing this out! That was very helpful!!!
It is not "Dark Mode" ... rather than use the (currently common) "dark mode" naming scheme, Adobe used "Light Gray" (aka white) and "Dark Gray" (aka black). In Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, go to View\Display Theme ... and choose light gray or dark gray.
This is available in the acrobat iOS app and has been for some time - "night mode" basically inverts the colours of the document. Surely it is possible to have the same function in the mac desktop applications (both adobe reader and acrobat pro).
Thanks for that update Rachit.
That's buried rather deep for a first user need, don't you think?

Dear Rachit -
Thanks for responding to my feature request.
The Dark Gray Theme DOES NOT resolve my issue, here is why.
The page the user is viewing takes up most of the surface area of the screen. It is still WHITE.
When the page has a WHITE BACKGROUND, most of the light from the screen is still being dumped into the user's retina. This is painful, especially for those of us who spend many hours on a computer.
The simple action of flipping the WHITE BACKGROUND to black and the BLACK PRINT to white would be a huge step in the right direction. I know that the color scientists that Adobe has, such as the distinguished John Peterson, could take this step even further by providing TRUE DARK theme colors that would be very readable and easy on the eyes.
A quick way of accomplishing this would be to flip the color table entries that are within the scope of the Acrobat application that render the page itself, and not the surrounding user interface. Making this color table accessible to the user would be a big improvement even if it added a bit of clunkiness to the user interface until a better solution was obtained. Hard white print on a hard black background is not the best solution, but it is a start in the right direction. I have attached an example showing that Dark Theme is not Dark when reading typical content.
All the best,
