Customizable colors in Camtasia

I would really like the ability to change the colors shown in the screenshot below.

The "1. background color" because it will make it easier to ensure I don't have anything inadvertently showing (like a manually grabbed image where a rounded corner is minutely visible).  Ideally I would be able to choose any color I want, since I may want white or gray for a dark video, and black or charcoal gray for a lighter video.

"2. track background color" - boy, would it be nice if empty tracks had a different color so I could delete them without having to zoom out a zillion levels, delete it, and then zoom in again. 

"3. track header" because it's nearly impossible to click the lock icon on the first try since it's charcoal gray on top of dark charcoal gray.

Thanks for the feedback, Betsy. I appreciate you sharing not only what you'd like to see in Camtasia, but also why. 

I do have one tip that might help a little with #2:

While working in the timeline, try control-clicking in an empty spot. Doing so should bring up an option to "Remove All Empty Tracks". This might save you some time if you're trying to keep your timeline clean. And if that option is not presented in the menu, then you do not have any empty tracks.

Hope that helps,
