Selected Track Control Panel Background

2) If you are coloring the whole track, do the following:
- move the theme to to another folder and unpack it.
- find all instances of the TCP_BGSEL.PNG and MCP_BGSEL.PNG.
- use a graphic program to selected and lighten the main area of the track background PNG.
This area is partially transparent, so it should be easy to identify.

Unfortunately, changing it to white will do little to help the issue.
The current color of yellow is actually very bright, but is unfortunately darkened and muted by being covered with the folder background.
I could not find a way to limit the folder background so it just covers the start of the track background as it expands with the folder depth.
To change it will change the look of the TCP too much from what I want it to look like.
I do plan to redo the buttons in the TCP at some future date, at which point I will experiment with ways to alleviate the issue or possibly just give the TCP an entirely different look.

Thank you very much for those instructions. You and all the other great theme builders really make the music making process that much better (having to stare at a DAW all day long).
