The color scheme change selector seems to have disappeared from Editor Options > General and I can't find it anywhere. Is it hiding or gone?

Good Afternoon, 

TechSmith will be adding the option for a light theme in Snagit 12.

I sincerely apologize for the frustration and angst this topic has caused for all of you and furthermore that it has served as a hindrance to your relationship with TechSmith and your love for Snagit. 

I felt compelled to weigh this decision against the large number of inputs and feedback mechanisms that TechSmith has as well as the goals we set out to achieve with this release and with the vision of the product and company. 

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Snagit 12.1 will be releasing in early July (with Dropbox sharing, rotatable objects, customizable background color and more), however development is very near completion so this new theme option will be slated for the release following 12.1. I don't have a hard date on when the next release will be complete, but a portion of the team has already started working on this light theme. 

In the coming week, I will be reaching out with a few mockups for our idea of the light theme in hopes to gain your insights and feedback. 

Thank you and have a wonderful day!
