Default How can I get thicker vertical lines in the MIDI editor?

In the MIDI editor it is difficult for me to see where the quarter notes begin when drawing in MIDI notes. As you can see in the picture below, the MIDI notes starts and ends on a beat, but the vertical lines isn't helping me see that at a glance.

The lines look thick enough to me. Do you want to thicken all of them? Or just the lines on the beat, so that you can see where the quarter notes start/end?

I have mine set up to show the lines on the beat in a different color (and possibly a different thickness). I’ll check how I did that when I get home.

Yes, I would like to thicken only the ones on the beat

Hmm ... I didn't seem an option to change the line thickness (but may have overlooked it, though).

There are options in the "Theme Tweaker" to set the color of lines (a) at the start of the measure, (b) at the start of the beat, and (c) in between beats.

I have them all set to different colors, so that it is easy for me to see where beats start and end and which beat is the start of the measure.

Based on your suggestion I found a solution. In the theme tweaker there is a draw mode for the lines - a number between 0 and 1 that sets the transparency. By setting the lines to different draw modes I got a solution I like. Thanks for the help!
