Visibility of After Effects Work Space
I am 90 and taking a course in AE for personal enrichment at my local Junior college. The current workspace for AE is all black and the icons at the top are o small - that combination makes it difficult to use. I saw a tutorial on Vimeo in which the workspace was a light grey in color and the icons where reasonably large to be able to use. So I suggest that Adobe make this a new standard for new users and beginners to learn AE more easily. As a former technical writer/editor I wrote highly detailed instructions manuals for sophisticated electronic equipment so I see a need for Adobe to have a sort of by-the numbers manual to make their products easier to use and more productive. And despite a couple of attempts to find such a manual I did not find one. If I find the tutorial I saw as a video as used by someone that had the tutorial on Vimeo I will be glad to attach it to another "suggestion" webpage.

Another vote for a non dark UI! When I first learned AE 20 years ago the interface was wonderful and the default was dark on light. I find it almost impossible to see the current version and I'm not quite as old as the OP.
Thank you very much for this request! For simplicity, I have merged your second suggestion with this first one to keep all the information in one place.
