How to change the dark color of the tool or menu palette in Version 2018.4.3.54046?

I can't seem to find an option to change the background color or the menu/category headers of the tool palette. By default, it comes with a dark background color after installing this version but there's no option to change this. See screenshot below.

Correct, you can't change the colours of the UI from within the product. 


What are your comments here/feedback? Alteryx have done a lot of work with the UI and have shared it at both the US and Europe conferences so they've had a lot of feedback to work through and I think it looks great!

A couple of Analysts have come forward with their feedback to have the option to change the background under User Settings. As you know, a lot of Developers and Analysts have different UI preferences, so the ability to give them a flexible option to change these settings to whatever their liking is, would be key. For instance, one Analyst already came forward and said that s/he would like to revert the UI colour to what it was in the previous version or something else, which may be Accessibility-friendly to the eyes.
