ExamDiff Pro 12.0: Improved Dark Theme and Other Usability Improvements

Last but not least, based on user requests, we're adding a View | Toolbar | Customize ... menu command that opens the toolbar customization dialog (which is also accessible through the Add or Remove Buttons | Customize ... context menu in the toolbars):
