Ligand Viewing Options menu confusing

When you change to Ligand Viewing Options mode, the menu does not appear until you click. This is counterintuitive - you would only change to that mode if you wanted to change the viewing options, so the menu should appear as soon as you enter the mode.
When Ligand Viewing Options menu first appears, you can check the boxes of the various grids, but you can't see the grids because the sliders are all the way to the left. It would make more sense to have them all the way to the right or in the middle by default so that checking the boxes causes the grids to appear.
When the grids are visible and you switch to Ligand Design mode, they stay visible until you change an atom to C or N, when they disappear. It would make more sense for them either to disappear when you change mode (if they are not supposed to be visible in ligand design mode), or to stay visible until you explicitly turn them off.
When the viewing options menu reappears after re-entering viewing options mode, the grids do not reappear even if their boxes are checked and their sliders are all the way to right. The grids do not reappear until you move their sliders. They should reappear as soon as you enter viewing options mode, if their boxes are checked. Or they should stay visible in other modes until you turn them off.
Many players always use the black background for folding. The black repulsive grid does not show up against the black background - could it please have a different color?
Where are the grids supposed to be? They appear as little clouds that are not centered on the protein or the ligand, or the donors or acceptors, or the hollow space inside the protein.
