Please bring back "Blue Background, White Text" to Office 2016!
Sometimes, when I really need to focus on the words, and not the layout, I like to drop into the old-school, George RR Martin-style white-on-blue layout.
I am saddened that this was yanked from Office 2016, even though searching in the Preferences Pane shows where it ought to be
The feature of having blue background and white text was excellent - but was tossed out lately. This is not good at all for my eyes !!!

The blue background, white text was last seen in Word 2003, then Microsoft decided to remove it in Word 2007 and later versions. I do not know the reason why Microsoft removed the blue background, white text feature, but it was helpful for people like me who have eye stress, pains and headaches. Please add it back to the next release of Microsoft Word.
Plus (VERY important): PLEASE add a "Black Background, White Text" feature for those who have visual over-sensitivity/responsivity. The blue will probably be as bad for us as the "regular" white-background-black-text.
Please PLEASE PLEASE bring this back. I spend all day transcribing and that damned white screen gives me headaches.

I agree. I edit/translate for a living, and the white-on-blue was much, much easier on my eyes!
