Updated to 0.9.6 to cover version 2020.04 because I was updating my themes anyway and I figured I'd just Get It Done.

Thanks for sharing your efforts in helping others customize their user experience. I've been wondering about improving the look of the drum map that comes up in the multidock (main color on the left side, where the names are displayed). Any ideas where that color tweak might be found. Also any chance of also tweaking the fonts (color & size) Again, many thanks. I just recently got back into this DAW and am enjoying it now as much as any I've used, and more productive as well.

Thanks again,

DanRB

@Daniel Boyce, I believe that these colors (drum map note names) can not be changed via themes. I definitely searched for them but was unable to find them. There are a few places where we just don't have that option, and I think this is one of them.

Not sure about the text but you can change the background color: "Piano Roll View - Grid Label Background".

However, this is ALSO the color of the white piano keys.

@sjoens, I'm not seeing that, at least, not in my test scheme based on Mercury:

You're right. That feature I was unaware of as I don't use drum maps. I was thinking more of the drum names displayed in lieu of the black & white keys - shown in pink in your screenshot.

 

On a side note, I just searched Sonar X3 for the drum map background color with Duckbar and found it (96979c). Too bad Duckbar doesn't work with CbB (yet?).

Colin, I wanted to report an error in the 0.9.6 YLG: at the end of p. 74 you offer MarianoGF's "Boston Flowers" as an example of of putting thought into how clips are colored in a theme, but the screenshot to illustrate it is missing.

Huh. You are correct, @Starship Krupa. I checked the .PDF on my local drive and it shows the image fine, it is also v.0.9.6. So that is strange.

Rather than replace it with the same version number, given that the contents would have changed, I've just regenerated the PDF from my current 0.9.7 source document and re-uploaded it. The link on the first post should reflect the new version. I double-checked that the missing image is now visible.

Any other changes I made since 0.9.6 are minor (but include an updated image for PRV "Grid Label Background", I know that!). 
I'll update my source document to 0.9.8 for future revisions.

Thanks, and regards to you and Sister Gluebird.
