Background color

I am brand new to onshape and decided to start using a tutorial. I want to follow along with my own exercise so I made a copy. The background is BLACK and the plane lines are blue. I also can't select a plane to sketch on, etc., etc. Basically I can't even get started.

    @philip_carney are you using chrome Firefox opera or safari? Those are the only supported browsers. Also make sure your browser and graphics card drivers are up to date.
