This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Adjust the UI color & contrast

I began using the new Camtasia today and I love it. But after working for a few hours I can feel my eyes straining to pick out the edges of clip on the timeline. In a future update, can the clips be a lighter shade or a different color so there is more contrast between them and the timeline background?

From the various posts, it is clear C9 (which I have now purchased) will be an issue for me.  No contrast = unable to read.  I'm seeing this with many applications where gray on white or, worse, light gray on dark gray is becoming the standard.  One day, the developers will have issues and begin to wonder, "What WAS I thinking!".

Hmmm...I didn't notice the lack of contrast until this thread started, but it is a real problem. Take a look: 

Selecting the edge I want gets harder as the day stretches long. I have 12-15 tracks open on my Thunderbolt display (thanks Camtasia for the detachable canvas!) Many are butted up against each other like this.
