Default Coloring toolbar buttons

Hi! Is there any way to paint different sections of buttons with text icons on a toolbar in a different colors? I.e. I have a custom toolbar where is section of EQs, section of dynamic plugins, section of mastering plugins, etc.

Something like that:

(don't try to find some logic in positioning or coloring, huh)

Thanks!

These color-coded text buttons look nice and clean, organized.
Unfortunately it is not possible to set background color for text icons, which is shame :-(
Only if you prepare these buttons as image-icons separately.

Indeed, the "text icon" buttons use the default button image. So being able to pick a tint for them would be very helpful. Tool bars would be easier to use as the buttons could be distinguished more easily.

The only course of action at the moment is to make each button individually as an image. That could take hours. And. if you switch to a different theme you get to do them all again!

Color-coded text buttons like that would make using toolbars so much easier.

it really is not that hard IF you have photoshop and IF you make a template

then it becomes quite easy to just create new text layers as desired, along with various background color layers...

then you simply turn on and off the layers and save as a png file with your choice of name... put them in the toolbar icons folder for reaper and carry on.
