Snagit 4 (Mac) Capture window color/theme

The color contrast in the capture window color is not enough to make selections immediately obvious. IMO, the contrast should be increased, I usually have to double-check to see if Image/Video/All-in-One is selected. Also, there is not a clear separation of the "Presets", I think it needs to be clear that they are a totally different section when expanded.

Also, I didn't found that the theme affects this window. I have the light theme for the editor and I still see the Capture screen dark, and I didn't find a Capture screen theme setting.

In general, I feel the use of colors could help a lot distinguishing the different sections of that Capture screen.

Thanks for your feedback. We can take a look at the colors and try to improve the contrast.

As for controlling the theme of the capture window, it's actually tied to the menu color of your mac.

It looks like all of the suggestions cesar.zavala made have since been implemented. Everything looks good to me now! I like that the new Capture window follows the Snagit theme now versus the Mac menu selection (I never saw it then, but I can imagine). I came across this post looking for something similar for the OneClick Capture Tab. Off to continue searching...or I'll post.
