Windows 7: Office 2013 - Impossible to use out of doors in the sun

Office 2013 - Impossible to use out of doors in the sun

Hi there
I'm afraid I have to give Office 2013 a total NO NO for use on a laptop out of doors.

Menu's all WHITE - can't customize and incredibily difficult to use outside. I'd make the guy who designed that colour scheme sit outside for 6 hours everyday and be forced to use Office 2013 ON A TABLET too !!! and see how he / she gets on with it.

I can't see the menu's very clearly - Outlook for instance is all white and very hard to read if sitting with your laptop say on a terrace at your favourite bar or café.

There's no way to alter the settings for example on Office 2010 you can do a little customisation so menus are very easy to read even outside

For example Outlook and excel snapshots (2010). Easily visible even outdoors.

Customization is one of the last functions to be added to pre-release issues of office, well it was with both 2007 & 2010 anyway.
