    I see this many places.  Adobe is by far the worst offender, in so many ways.   Microsoft is also very bad.  If you can't see the problem, that is the problem.  Look harder.


    Hint: if you hardcode one color, you must hardcode the other; do not use your color and one totally-unrelated (by fact) user-set color.  If you do, this is the result.  All over the place.  And if you don't want me selecting colors I want, don't make it so I can.
