Are there any predefined MATLAB dark mode settings so we do not need to maually set-up them ?
Specially for the MATLAB editor ?

The best way that I know of to do this is to use MATLAB Schemer from the File Exchange.

@Kyle If you are using Windows, and mainly working with Matlab, you can invert the system colors.
Windows Settings > Ease of Access > Color filters > Turn on color filters > Select Inverted or Grayscal inverted
Once enables, you can switch between the color mode with Windows+Ctrl+C.
I hate that Matlab does not have a dark mode even in 2020, but the color filter is the only work-around I found for mlx.

I know that MATLAB Schemer has been the go to answer for a dark mode for a while, but I wasn't particularly happy with it due to the still bright ribbon and borders.
Instead, I have been using a GNOME window color-inverter (Ubuntu) in order to invert the colors of just the matlab window. It's not perfect, but I think it's a step in the right direction

David, I did that on Windows but my laptop is taking time to load the display.
