    I just wanted to add my comment just in case volume matters. First a question, if you have a SQL Instance with SSMS 18 but don't have an environment with Visual Studio installed, what are you to use to Debug T-SQL? You cannot debug T-SQL with Azure Data Studio or VS Code.

    As a T-SQL Developer, having the ability to debug a complex statement from withing SSMS was very-very useful. Most server instances I've had to connect to via RDP do not have a Dev IDE like VS installed. They only have SSMS available to use to step-through some T-SQL in order to try and resolve an issue that might be an issue that only surfaces under certain specific data scenarios. The debugger was critical for these situations. I just ran into a use case and discovered that SSMS 18.4 does not have the debugger.

    Why remove something so useful. I want it back in the product.

    Unfortunately the complexity to implement dark mode into SSMS v18 is prohibitive and this item remains unplanned. Regular updates and improvements to SQL Server Management Studio are continuing, but most of the net new innovations in the graphical tooling space can be expected to be seen in Azure Data Studio.

    Possible bug ??
    Using SSMS 18.2 on Windows 10 Pro. I have uncommented ssms.pkgundef line 460 and the Dark Theme option is still not available in the Color Theme drop down list. The attached file shows the environment specifics.
