Color-Theme Modification

Postby SouLcRusaDer_kA » Mon May 26, 2014 11:07 am

i have just spent about an hour to edit Color-Theme
since i like a darker environment, and the built in black theme is too dark

and im here to share a few of my findings

go to: notion 4 installation folder>support>themes
u can see tpk files, open one with text editor , i chose White
(do copy in case u screw it up)

ok, u can see 4 numbers in a group in every line,
first to third numbers are color number code, (0 0 0 = black, 1 1 1 = white)
the fourth represents color-intensity
(0 to 1: from pale to intensive)
by playing Windows' Paint, u can get the idea of the color number code
generally, you will have to change the "fill color" line

the following are the elaboration of some codes

pgbk - background color of page view
ctbk - background color of continuous view
cnbk - background color of the left-part of continuous view (showing instruments' names)
spbr - color of the editing-marker for non-selected tracks
ptbr - color of the editing-marker for selected tracks
ptbf - color of the editing-marker for selected tracks WHEN you selected a note

hope that helps :D

That's nice to now.

Thanks for sharing your observations wisdom and attention to detail.
