Default Light version of the v6 default theme?

I'm new to Reaper and keen to use the default theme for v6 to get the intended user experience, but I am colour blind and the dark backgrounds and generally darkness in the default theme make it really hard for me to see. I also use Ableton and the light themes for it work well for my stupid eyes. Is anyone able to recommend a subtly adjusted version of the default v6 theme that will work for me?
(I tried a few times to adjust the theme settings myself and just made a mess so would love some help)

Hi

If you are not comfortable tweaking the rtconfig.txt file in the unpacked theme you could have a look at the theme tweaker in REAPER.

You access that by opening the Action List,

Actions > Show action list...

and then when the Action List appears, type "twea" in the filter text box.

That will present you just one action, Theme development: Show theme tweak/configuration window

Double click on that, or click on the Run button and you a window will pop up. Within this window you may be able to tweak some of the background colours to suit your colour blindness.

I can't say whether it will or not, but it is worth having a play with that.


Once you have something usable you can save your theme from that window.




cheers

andy

Thanks! I had a play around with this just now and unfortunately the same problem i'm trying to address (the colour blindness) is making it hard to make changes that work/help. Hoping this is something other people feel as well and the Reaper team will address it.

I hope you get what you need

If, in the meantime, I find a solution in the rtconfig.txt file I will post here, but hopefully White Tie will beat me to it.

If you change a single color using this color tweaker, reaper reset to defaults all settings you made in the v6 theme tweaker. I was only able to modify colors while keeping meters on the right side by modifying the theme itself.
