Just had Camtasia 9 installed at my office PC. I can't change the UI from black to lighter color. This is terrible. Is there a hotfix I can download??

I don't believe it's possible to change the UI colors. I too would like to see this as an option :-)

This is terrible. I have Camtasia 8 at home and the UI looks great. Users should NEVER be stuck with black for a UI. I know some people like a black UI, but I hate it for many reasons.  I wish I could install my own Camtasia 8 here at my job. :-(

There's an ongoing discussion this here. Looks like it's something we might see in the future:

Thanks for sharing that link. "Might see in the future" isn't good enough as far as I'm concerned. It needs to be an adjustable option and should have been a free hotfix a long time ago. :-(   
Do you happen to know if Camtasia 2018 has an adjustable UI color? If so, I'll ask at work if they'll upgrade to it.

There is no adjustable UI color in Camtasia 2018.

Thanks for the info. I'll assume it is still black like Camtasia 9.

Camtasia 9.1.2 included improvements to the color contrasts in the UI.

I've just installed Camtasia 2018 and am finding the color contrasts very difficult to work with. I upgraded from Camtasia 8 and I'm finding it very difficult to see the Audio track when editing audio.  When is this going to be fixed? I'm tempted to go back to Camtasia 8 where it was good.   We need a lighter color scheme to work with. .... and by the way, I'm not visually impaired.  Looking at the forums, this should be a high priority issue - why isn't it fixed after all the feedback?

Good luck getting this changed, Phil.  The background/contrast screen issue has been an ongoing debate for 2+ years here in the Forum, and obviously is still unchanged. I continue to use v8.6.
