Change background screen from gray to color in Comments panel
When selecting edits in the Comments panel with the new 2019 Acrobat Pro DC, the background of an active comment is in a light gray screen. My previous versions of Acrobat Pro displayed selected comments in a light color, which made them easier to read and locate when working on a document that has hundreds/thousands of comments. This should be added as a global preference option in the Comments panel.
In the latest update of Acrobat DC, we have modernize the commenting experience and at the same time, made it very clean and intuitive to use.
As part of this update, we have changed the background color of the active comment as dark grey color to differentiate from other comments.
On hovering other comments, the background color of the comment changes to light grey to bring the comment in focus.
However we will consider your suggestion for future updates.

Sometimes, when it ain't broke it, don't fix it, as the old saying goes. Contrary to your description, the active comment is in a light, not dark, gray—which is what prompted my suggestion originally—it is harder to locate visually when working on a doc with hundreds of comments. If you compare the new "modernized" comment with the one in the screenshot posted above, the old one pops visually, as it should. If you decide to improve future releases of Acrobat, at least make it so the user can change the color to their personal usage. Thank you.
