Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have fixed my only major issue with the Imperial Theme - you brought back the indented track folders (I never could get the colored lights to indicate folders to be useful for me). I can't wait to install this theme (not at my recording computer right now).

My only other issue I didn't know was an issue until I started using a different theme that indented - the presence of envelope buttons on the TCP. Does one of your variants for the TCP swap out the input selector for the envelope button (that way I can switch that one thing out when I move from recording to mixing)?

Thanks again, Rob

All right, so I've installed the theme and it's beautiful - the tracks indent! I've played with the various layouts and I'm curious if the TCP option "Automator" should have the envelope button I mentioned above?

Actually, I love on "Swiper's Delight" that the input options are only visible when a track is record armed. Could that layout be modified such that the Envelope button is visible by default, but it switches to the Input selector when the track is armed?

Also, in Automator, the daughter tracks in a folder don't have the FX bin button any more. It's still on the MCP, so it's not a big deal, but I don't think it should disappear when the track is moved into a folder.

Again, thanks for your great edits to WT's most beautiful theme, and I hope I have inspired you to tackle these minor modifications.

Thanks again, Rob

Thanks for taking the time to respond, and thanks for this gorgeous theme!
You're welcome!
Glad you got it fixed.

It's odd though, are you using a light color for your system text?
It looks like this for me:

It does for me unless you have the TCP set very narrow.
If that's the case your best bet is the Automator "ShortName" layout.

yes, but depends on where you want it.
I'm guessing you want in the current position of the recinput.
you will need the change the code for the layout.

I don't see this behavior unless the panel is very thin, causing the recinput to disappear.
The FXin is dependent on the recinput being there, both are set to disappear unless the track is armed.
changing this behavior will require editing the layout code and likely need image changes as well.

Thank you, but I have no plans to modify the theme any further.
The only updates from this point will be to add new features that have been introduced to keep it current with Reaper.

The envelope mod is fairly simple once you understand how WALTER works.
I suggest making a simple theme to learn the mechanics, then you'll be able to make tweaks like that to any theme.

You might also want to take a look at LCS_BlueCore and LCS_BlueTone-6 which have their roots in Imperial's 'Dead Ringer' layout.
see links for them in my signature below.

@lucas_LCS: You're right, I am using a light color for the system text. I'm using a dark desktop theme, which displays light text on a dark background. It never occurred to me that it would affect the way applications look.

Adjusting the window background of the Reaper theme fixes it though.

Thanks again for this wonderful theme!

Sure enough, when I expanded the TCP everything showed up.

Thanks - BlueTone-6 looks like it might be a winner. I'll experiment with it for a while and see if it speaks to me...
