Bring back Light & Medium Gray Theme Colors
Apparently these theme colors were removed, and I don't understand why - it makes no sense to reduce the amount of customization people can have over the software they choose to own.
I hate too much white - it tends to bother my eyes. And the Dark Gray theme is too dark, in my opinion. Bring back the other options, or at the very least, alter the Dark Gray to what it used to be in Office 2013.
Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion.
The current version looks like Word for Windows 2 from the early 1990's. Actually it is worse. How about making the product less hideous. One ingenious idea is to copy the themes used in Word 2007 or 2010.
Plus my vote. I can't stand the 3 options and can't even see what the skeleton-like shortcut icons are supposed to be in the colorful theme.

I absolutely hate the 3 themes in office 2016, I am so temped to go back to 2010 as the colours on that were just perfect and everything appeared far clearer. I'm doing a side by side at the moment and the 2016 is far too washy and seems to almost have a white filter over it whereas the 2010 is clear, contrasty and has clear defined lines.
Please listen and help the people who use your products.

We need more themes for Office 2016. The ones available now are pretty poor. Any way to add some other options?
OFFICE 2016'll buy more colors and shades of gray, thnx
We need more themes!!!!!!
The washed out fonts -- way too light -- on white backgrounds are impossible to deal with. Forcing the office theme "Dark Grey" just to get some readable contrast is absurd.
I totally agree with you
Definitely go for creating your own themes so we can all decide how light or dark our work space should be.

I actually not only want more themes, I want the ability to create my own custom theme and change every bit of the display.
I want to control how read and unread message appear, etc.
I agree the extra themes would be useful, particularly with some monitors.
Plus my vote too...
