    defective??

  7. yes that does the trick, but I seem to recall that I could keep my menu
    AND keep the work space black at the same time....

  9. Use the paint bucket and click on that space with the ALT key pressed.

    There are two possible things going on here. One is that you have the
    black area as a result of hitting "F" twice. You can't change that as
    far as I know. Just hit "F" again.

    The other possibility is that you actually changed the gray pasteboard
    in a normal mode by using Shift-Paint Bucket with Black as the
    foreground color. Change it back the same way with R=192,G=192,B=192, or
    trash Preferences.
