Not everyone is a member of facebook. Could you summarize the problem
the person is having with the dark padding?

I'm guessing that "dark padding" refers to the dark theme. There is also
a middle gray and a light theme, in addition to the dark theme.

When the themes were being developed, there was input from various
people with various issues with themes that were "too bright" and also
with themes that were "too dark", hence the three choices.

Best,
Elle

Oh Sorry!

Here is his question:

====
John Hughes-Jones > ‎GIMP

Using GIMP 2.10.6, is there any way to change the very dark padding
for this program and the docks that accompany it. At 72 my eyes cannot
handle it.

And then the Comments
