There seems to be a lot horizontal space wasted in Reaper 5 HTML theme though compared to Reaper 3 HTML theme.

I will refrain from providing any feedback on this forum. People on this forum are total bitches. Sorry for ruining your forum experience because you choose to use a small screen size. How inconsiderate of me. I should have checked with you first.

Can I get you a refreshment? Back massage? Need anything while I'm at the grocery store?

Is this better?

Sorry for OT but I'm with MRMJP. It's 2019 and screens are getting bigger. Please let's face the future a bit.

@nofish, yeah I agree. That's why I always zoom in to have the full screen width.
Maybe v6 could take care of that.

It's not about display size, but about netiquette too. Even in said 2019, not every one is constantly connected to high speed network, uses high resolution device all the time. Also FUP still happens. Besides of this, there are people who are just not interested in a sub-topic the pics are related to. So why to bother them?

More sad is, that in mentioned 2019, people are lazy and/or ignorant to know that there is an easy way how to attach clickable thumbnail which would satisfy all the parties.
To achieve that, you have to combine url and img tags like this:

You have to replace {} by []
Code:
{url=url_to_original_image}{img}url_to_thumbnail{/img}{/url}
BTW Limiting text column width (like in Reaper 5 HTML theme) is a consequence of using wide monitors. Simply has been figured out that reading text arranged into narrower column is more easy to our eyes because they don't need to swipe from one side to another. Also, since more text might fit single line on a wide monitor, a lot of paragraphs turned into single line. In consequence we end up with multiple single line paragraphs, separated by space. It's obvious it doesn't look nice.

You know what...old project colors really are crazily bright, but I think I'm starting to like it. It has that "neon feel" Cubase had for me and I really liked that. Makes you feel you're in a spaceship and I mostly do music for spaceship travel

The only thing I'm afraid is eye/mind fatigue in the long run...This is what I like about default 5, you can use it for hours without fatigue. It is quite an accomplishment when you think about how many elements there are in a general DAW program. I find that grayish hue is really easy on the eyes, but it still doesn't encompass your whole vision with one big grey color (like ableton live does).

However, track names being in track color when not record armed really doesn't help with visibility. I would personally pick white text color for track name regardless of other conditions.

Also, notes names in MIDI editor seem too dark to me, can be hard to read at times with dark background


I feel this theme will end up looking beautifully once it's production ready. White Tie, please don't get discouraged by negative feedback, it's all feedback after all, right ;D

Did you try the feature of the script that dims the colors for the entire project?

Also you can now choose whatever hue and lightness of color you want. If you want the tracks to be a little bit grayish, you can just set a color palette to have those colors and use them.

ive been playing around with the new skin the last week. i have a problem when in the theme adjuster>mixer control panel, i choose "extend with side bar" when track armed. it will extend on armed and unarmed tracks. same is true for the other choices too, like narrow form, or when choosing "if track not armed"

In my opinion, you could get rid of everything that's already available through a simple right-click on the Record button. That's how I do it anyway, it's faster for me. I just right-click, monitor the input, select the input and activate the Record state. It's a one-click stop.
Hell no, because. Swipe!

I did and it looks good, but the moment you switch to another theme, you have to correct it again. I can't work like that cause I switch themes all the time (got 8 of them setup to work with my templates) to keep the blood pumping. So for now, Default 6 is my neon-colors-go-to-theme

If I change themes, I usually have to change colors. So this is nothing new for me.

This whole procedure seems very convoluted and backwards to me. I pick colors that I want to use, I don't pick them in order to dim/change them at a later stage. We need to be able to actually use the colors we actually choose, this should be a core feature of the standard theme.

I have tried to pick the colors I want to use with the Default 5 theme (and some others) but am not able to. With this Default 6 alpha theme, I can pick the colors I want to. They are actually what I pick, not a greyed-up or dimmed version of it.

The dimming function of the script has limited usefulness to me, unless I'm switching from another theme which has brighter colors chosen (which end up "washed-out" such as in the Default 5 theme). If I load a project with colors chosen for Default 5, they'll be too saturated etc. in Default 6 alpha. That's when I might want to use that feature.

The same can be said for lots of other themes. Sometimes the colors are bright, sometimes dark, sometimes saturated, sometimes less saturated.

Whenever I've edited a theme, I've made it such that I can color the tracks more accurately--such as in the Default 6 alpha theme.

I wouldn't consider the dimming function very important. But it's nice for transitioning a project that was made in Default 5 (or some other theme which has the colors more greyed-out etc.)

Sure. It's great that the theme retains the colors we actually pick. This is not the problem. The problem is that they are way overfeatured (IMO), covering the entirety of the track panels, making it difficult to pick out selected tracks, etc, unless you go ahead and dim them all down again.

I would wager the absolute majority of users pick bright, primary colors for their tracks, like I do, intense blue (drums), deep red (bass), whatever. Colors are a sorting mechanism first and foremost.

I wish WT would go ahead and try minimizing the areas that get colored on track panels, and turn these areas into cleverly positioned colorstrips instead. It would make the theme much more cohesive and completely negate the need to fiddle with dimming/washing out bright and distinct color choices.

This is a good idea - playing with elements instead of the background. The less colors, the more stronger you can make them without over-saturating the senses. So the theme would keep the neon-look but it would be less "in-your face" and probably be less fatiguing
