Every Mindmapper knows that colour is important.
It helps you focus on what you want to do.
It helps you find stuff faster.
It helps you to be more productive.

In MM version 16, the colours in the ribbons and other menu bars have gone. They are replaced by some kind of blue.

I think this is a bad idea, since it makes me less productive, less creative and it takes a lot of time to get used to the new user interface.

So please give me back my colours.

I too have noticed that when working in 2016 I find the identification of the Task Pane Tabs difficult with the new flat icons.

The color element adds another dimension to a visual and aids recognition as well as those things mentioned by Ary above.

Would it be possible to have an option of running 2016 with the previous icon set?
