The colour now is yellow. I find it not a good choice because it's a pale kind of yellow and not good to see.
What about a more saturated yellow or a kind of blue or purple or orange?

As far as I understand, this is about the Insert Row and Insert Column buttons on the Table toolbar. I agree that the contrast is too low. (For what it's worth, the green in 3.2.1 is only slighly better.)

To anyone else who wants to check colour contrast, I can recommend the (free) Contrast Analyser by the Paciello Group: <>. This tool is available for Windows and Mac. Just make sure that you check the luminosity algorithm.

(There is some guidance for this tool at
<>, but it's really very easy to use.)
