Is there any way to get rid of, or change the color of, that bright yellow box around the selected view? It is quite distracting given the new darker color scheme, and it makes it difficult to judge and adjust colors in the view.

    It shows you the boundaries of what you've selected.  It can be very helpful.

     

    These are the Guides/Dynamic Guides.  Turn them on/off in the View menu, top right of the Canvas.

    Adjust the color in the Canvas section of the Preferences (Command-commma).

    That tells you what window is active. It's bulit into Motion and can't be turned off.

    If you turned it off, you'd have really no clue which view you were acting upon.

    It gets in the way of what?  It's the border of your image, it's not on top of anything.  I don't understand how it gets in the way.  Just curious as to what your experience is.

    Go back to the single  View Layout -- that yellow border does not exist if there is only one view. You can change back after your color corrections.
