bug - New 2018 Black and grey themes
Changing to the new black theme and then closing out of access completely - re open access and change theme to colorful and the navigation search bar remains black, changing to grey and back to colorful also does not change the search bar back to white.
The black theme is a nice idea and aligns itself with windows themes and visual studio however the implementation leaves a lot to be desired. Disabled ribbon button labels are too dark and don't have enough contrast to be visible. Open a query editor window and try to read the labels in the bottom pane on the left hand side against the white background - this needs to be fixed. Relationship window with the black and white themes especially we are noticing the grey 1 - many symbols are practically impossible to see and the graphics engine seems to be creating horrible tearing when you create a relationship and move one of the tables in the window.
Thanks for providing feedback on the recent added support of Dark and Black themes in Access.
Ribbon colors have consistent behavior across Office apps and we do not have a plan to change that.
Switching between themes without restarting Access may result in somewhat funky behavior and is unfortunate. However, we believe that ’s not a very frequent operation.
