Is there any scientific evidence that a particular background is the best for doing 2D design work, for architectural and mechanical plans? The main options are:
(1) Black - many drawing programs default to this; since unused pixels will be off, there will be no "bleed" from neighboring pixels; so there is an argument that this will be the sharpest and most highly defined background
(2) White - imitates the look of paper; might bleed color; potentially creates better contrast for some colors.
(3) Pale Yellow - supposedly this type of background creates an optically neutral field that is the least distracting to the eye; both white and black can be used as design colors
So, above I have listed some of the common considerations but it is not clear which factors might be dominant, or maybe it there is no "best" color. Is there any hard scientific evidence that identifies a particular background color as superior to the others?
