I get that the Discover has a new color palette to reduce eye strain (although there is plenty of research to argue against that, and I personally disagree). However, there have been plenty of instances when attempting to report where the colors are clearly of such low constrast that it's almost impossible to read/see data, especially if fields are selected. 

 

Please let some of us opt to change the skin of the tool to something more simple that closely matches the older version of discover, or at least standard popular OS convetions. I find it much easier to scan data with black text on white than gray text on gray, especially given all the extra visual noise thrown on the screen with jagged divisions of columnar data and the like.

I agree, I find myself squinting to see the black on dark grey user interface elements.

 

Plus it looks really unprofessional if you screenshot a chart from Discover into an email and you have a black on black theme.
