Camera Raw: Only Dark Mode in ACR 13.0 when opening out of Bridge?

When opening a RAW-file out of Adobe Bridge in Camera Raw it is only dark mode available.

Is there any way to switch to grey mode with black text? Darkmode with negative text causes trouble with eysight…
Thank you

In each of Bridge and Photoshop, in the Interface panel in Preferences there is a choice of 4 modes, dark to light.  I can't remember which controls Camera Raw, nor whether one of these choices also sets the other.

I choosed the light grey mode in Bridge and Photoshop. And that works well. Bridge and PS ist light grey.
But when opening a RAW via the aperture/shutter icon on top of Bridge window, the Raw is opened in darkmode ACR.
There in ACR 13.0 i have no choice to switch to light grey.

When opening the RAW file via Photoshop, than Camera Raw appears in light mode.
But not when opened out of Bridge…
So old workflow opening raws out of Bridge will not work anymore because black background and white text.

OK, thank you.
I hope they fix it soon. My old eyes have trouble with that dark mode…

If you are using Bridge, change the color theme in Bridge. Preferences>Interface>Appearance>Color Theme and open the file in Bridge hosted ACR. If you are using Photoshop change the interface in Photoshop: Preferences>Interface>Appearance>Color Theme

Yes i already did it as described in my second post an hour ago.
I use PS since 1992 in light grey…
Please read my second post there is my workaround.
Bridge and PS are in light grey. When opening a RAW via PS it opens light grey in CameraRaw.
But when opening via Bridge (which is also in light grey) it opens in darkmode.
