I've never been able to change the pasteboard color in 2+ years. I've searched google, vimeo, youtube, and no one seems to have a video on it. Check here on the forums and It's only feature requests. 


I've tried preferences: UI>Background and dragging slider doesnt change anything.

Hi SurJones,


Please see the attached screenshot.


You can alter the level of grey by altering the Background Grey Level, as you can see from my screenshot i've been able to get it go near enough to white.  I believe the feature request would be for a custom colour.

I've noticed that adjusting the slider for background gray level has no effect unless one has a document open in Designer. That can make it a bit confusing to adjust things, as it looks like the adjustment isn't working.
