This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camtasia 9 Interface (UI)

The solid black working area for Camtasia 9 is really hard to use for my 70-year old eyes. Would it be possible to have alternate color schemes or skins to choose from?

Agreed. While my eyes are only 50+ years old, the solid black is really awkward to read.  I am really struggling with the menus and tool panels.

early on in the CS9 beta program, there was a CS9 background option that was very light; for me, it was very difficult to work with, and I complained about it; am glad that we have what we have now

with the current dark color scheme, I find that the issue is really the extremely small fonts that are used, as opposed to the dark color itself

Both the black on black skin and the small fonts are difficult to work with.  There should be an option to change both.

absolutely agree. For the dropdown menu grey on black is too dark.
