Hello, it would be nice if there is a possiblity to change the color of the background / menu in Adobe Camera Raw. As I work frequently at night, the white color interferes with the photo.
For the moment you can only change the backgroundcolor of Bridge.

This is screamingly obvious and why it hasn't been a feature since the beginning is, frankly, bonkers.

ACR should use the new UI that blur gallery uses. In this case it would automatically use the same UI color as Photoshop. And in CS6 you then would have 4 UI colors. Also the new UI has several other advantages like floating panels and being able to see the layered composition etc.

solved in Camera Raw 8.3. Even the black hair line can be toggled off. Great, Thanks to the team

The switch over to white type on a dark grey background in Camera Raw 9.5 is hard to read. Please go back to black type on white or give us the option to change it. That is one of the reasons I hate Lightroom. I can't read any of the text.
