This would just be a nice to have, but coloring or shading of the background?
Makes it a little easier on the eyes for long stints of modelling.
& perhaps throwing some basic colors on the tool icons - makes it easier & faster to differentiate.

    This is one of the improvement. I guess Onshape is already working for it. But since working on Onshape is from online cloud server, in order to minimize the regeneration time, at present priority for graphics is not higher.

    There was some conversation about these things back in April 2015

    I made a request for this a while back and hope it's on the short list. 
    I find it impossible to view the screen more than 1/2 hour before my eyes become irritated. This is a real problem for some of us.

    I looked at dimming my screen brightness but then that made it to difficult to see the light gray fonts.

    Even this forum display is one of the brightest I've seen, and I read a lot of forums. A slight tint would help a lot.

    Love the program though. Just need to use it in small sessions.

    I'll bump this one up from the dead. I've been actively searching for a SW replacement since they took colors out of the UI for the 2016 release. When I spend a lot of time in a program, it needs to make me happy. Gray and blue and white don't really do it for me. Is there any chance of getting a more colorful interface and icons in the future? Makes icon identification
