Bridge: I still desire a dark surround on image reviews, and this is no longer possible.

In Bridge CC 2017 and before, there one could full-screen preview images (space bar) with a black surround (a preference set under "Interface").

It was independent of CC2017's Dark, light, medium, etc. overall look.

Problem: In Bridge CC2019 (October 2018) this ability has been removed. So, while I prefer a lighter overall interface, I still desire a dark surround on image reviews, and this is no longer possible.

Please bring it back. Isn't it silly to have removed it?

This is almost certainly a result of switching frameworks for the new UI. Settings are completely different and its now tied to the overall theme.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Interface Background color in Bridge and Camera Raw..

I have been a regular Photoshop user since 1991 and am a photographer and color correction specialist. I am dismayed that you can no longer create a custom color interface in Adobe Bridge and new versions of ACR. It is important for my workflow to have a consistent 18% grey throughout my entire process from Bridge to ACR to Photoshop. Currently, only PS allows for a custom color background. Bridge and ACR have removed that option in recent versions. Please reinstate those options if at all possible! Thanks, David Ulrich

Camera Raw has never had an option for "Custom" background/apron color. I'll make that part of this a feature request

That was enough to change title only as the content is exactly the same :)
