Yes, good call.

I disagree.

Yes, very nice. I'll try that right away, thanks!

EDIT : tried it, its great

No, unless I revert the V5 ME, in which case yes. Either way, you'll still have the V5 theme, yeah?

Read a text on a web page that has white text against a pure black background. Then, look around. The image is burnt on your retina longer.
Don't worry, I won't be doing white on black. This is mid-tone colours (depending on custom colour selection) on mid-dark grey.

This is indeed the trade off. The ladder goes:

1) dark enough to show differentiation of base colour
2) light enough to show selected state
3) not so bright that you can't differentiate the base colour amongst selected notes.

How are you getting on with the selected note/key when you use the theme as it is?
