Why did my InDesign preview mode background turn black?


Question

I know that you can change the preview mode background color in Preferences>Guides and Pasteboards. When I was working on a document, without going into preferences, my preview mode (shortcut: W) randomly turned black. I am assuming I pressed some keyboard shortcut accidentally or it was a glitch? I went into the Preferences to change the color back to gray, and the background was now set as Black, even though I did not change it in Preferences originally. Anyone know what's up?

This video shows how to change the preview mode, not the presentation mode.

When you hit "W" if your background colour is too bright or dark for your document you can change it here.

guides&pasteboard > match to theme colour or custom
