Adjust settings related to IME controls, interface color scheme, and screen/operations optimized for touch operations.

IME control [Windows/macOS]

For example in Japanese, the IME mode will toggle to hiragana input when the mouse cursor is moved to the field to input the layer name on the [Layer] palette, or to alpha­numeric input when the mouse cursor is moved to type in a numeric field in the [Tool Property] palette.
