Default Themes Don't Install

Hi guys. I just switched from BitWig to Reaper. I'm having trouble with themes. They aren't installing. They just turn everything to a generic light version unless I change it back to the default dark theme.

Halp!

usually you just need to drop them into reaper to install.

Download the file. A valid theme file should end with ".ReaperThemeZip". This file can then be dragged onto an open Reaper window to install the theme. Installed themes can be selected from Options / Themes in the menus.

The generic light version sounds like what happens when you apply a theme that has resources it needs that are in another separate archive or folder. Which themes are you trying? Check to make sure the ReaperThemeZip file isn't just the first of two or three files needed to install in the post where you downloaded it from.

...It happened to me in the past too. It seems that choosing to launch the theme "as administrator" solved the problem for me.
But I'll add...that happened to me in the past, with my current old PC and my current "old" OS (Windows 7)

I have another question. I installed the theme I wanted. But how do I change this white space to something else?

all you can do is add more plugins there as that is the place for displaying the fx in the chain.

individual fx can be displayed without the FX Chain window
