This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: SnagIt 12 color scheme is so dark - can it be changed?

I am visually impaired.

With the new black background I can no longer see the screen options which appear to be a faint off-white or gray. Please provide instruction how I can rollback to V11 while you sort this out.

Since forever, the Capture icon was different from the Editor icon in my tray. Now they are the same. Vive la difference! There was no reason to change this. It is confusing.

I agree with enhall!  I am not visually impaired, but I am over 50 and this UI is *impossible* to work with. I have to downgrade immediately.

I agree the new color combinations are not 'easy' to see. Is there a way to change back without downgrading??

I chose to uninstall and reinstall 11.4 until alternate, light color themes are supported. The emails I received from TechSmith today said they have no specific release date yet, but that this will be coming "shortly."

I am with the new interface for about an hour now and the amount of shock between the light grey before and normal screens and now the dark screen is so noticable, my eyes hurt every single time. 

I agree that it is great to work with if that would be the only thing, but there is a reason everything else has a light grey. It is highly possible that I go back to the old version.

Thanks a lot to those who braught up this issue. I'm 72 now and have thrown stones on Adobe for their black-and-white high contrast design. Why the heck do graphic artists mostly wear black suits and press their visual perceiption on evreyody?
At least there must be an alternative skin for the software if the look-and-feel is changed so drastically.
