Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

This is just a simple tip for those upgrading to Notes 12, as I just did. I mentioned on Facebook that I was surprisingly happy with the new workspace look, surprising only because I hated all the recent ones and have used the Textured Workspace until fairly recently. I was surprised that when I was asked for a screenshot like the one above, somebody else showed theirs and it looked quite different, like the one below.

After being questioned about what I might have done differently, I started looking and found the answer. If you right click on the workspace, there is a Background option. This has been advertised as a way to put a custom background image, but if you are like me and simply aren't sure you want so much blue, you can just set the option to None and you get the lighter screen like me.

That's it, really. Not a big deal no matter what you choose. I should say, even with the blue background it is better than the Notes 9, 10, or 11 workspaces, so whatever you choose, it feels like a step up. Thanks, HCL.
