Andy - I have your Mellow Gold Hybrid which I like (and I am also a continual tinkerer with my own colour schemes) but is this an add on or just a suggestion? Clearly us tinkerers can experiment but if the notes themselves are your own modification (which they look to be slightly shaded) then is this a planned update or upgrade to schemes purchased from you? Anyway it looks cool !

I have always had to tweak the background of the SE and TO window for my eyes. I use gotham daily for scoring and have it set to a beige, and I think an off white ion Gold Complete.

3. Right click on the theme you'd like to have it in and select "Show Package Contents"
4. Go to Contents/Resources and drop the file in Resources.
5. Re-select the theme in DP's prefs.

DONE!

Thanks Andy - this is great . Just a tip to everyone - this won't work unless you change the name of this png file to : kLargeMidiNoteIconSet_PictID.png

This way it now overwrites the default one. I mention this because the downloaded version had a slightly different name when I did this. Change the name and this works a treat when you place it in the Resources folder of the Theme.

Thanks Andy - now this is working it looks really good and gives the notes a nice definition and more solid look. Looks great to my eyes.

When I downloaded it, an extra ".png" was added to the filename, which I removed. I also noticed that some of the themes do not have this file in their resource folder, so I guess it doesn't make any changes to these themes?

It will override the default graphic that is already in DP's application. Any of my themes that have a darker edit window will work well with it. I've added a different variation to a few of my themes in the past.

A modest contribution because I am interested in the DP GUI and its possibilities but it does not seem easy. So I started slowly withthe introduction logo if anybody is interested. :P
I have to learn how to use GIMP which is a great tool. :boohoo:

I've been using GIMP since the beginning of this thing. It's so great.

Your download link doesn't seem to be working. I get to the download page, but get errors when I try to download the file.

I confirm: and after a new test for the archiving of these images, it's still the same situation.
So I pass them in this link's pictures and there is more than drag and drop.
