K3 menu colour themes

Anyone know if you can customize the menu colour theme? I know there are several presets, I'm looking to create my own preset. I really need high contrast colours as my eyes are not very good. I'm currently using the red theme, but I'm hoping for white on dark grey like lightroom or something similar.

To the best of knowledge, there is no way to create a custom color scheme. I have mine set for white letters on gray background. Is that too low a contrast?

For my (old) eyes I have found that #2 and #11 show the best contrast, while, for my (old) tastes, #11 looks the nicest (YMMV). High contrast for seeing the LCD monitor is very helpful for reading settings in bright light. I only wish that there were simple black-on-white and white-on-black settings to also try out, though...

I use the orange theme. I saw that on some Sony cameras and thought it looked cool. I don't think you can customize beyond the 12 or so preset options.
