hello all,
currently there are 16 custom colors via the sws actions, is it possible to have more than 16?

Do you know what colours you want?

And how many?

When I was developing my own theme I spent quite a bit of time deliberating what colours to use for tracks and despite having hundreds to choose from I found it a pain to come up with more than 24 or so that looked okay together.

Once I came up with a set of colours that I liked I decided to write a simple script for each one and then create an associated tool button.

Not a slick solution that's for sure but it works. The main problem I have is I can only colour one track at a time. One day I should try to improve my script writing skills...

cheers

andy

Must have been a crap idea because no one bothered replying.

actually what I (vaguely) remember to have seen, was a mod to a text file that allowed to modify the limit of available colors.
I tought it may have been "reaper.ini" but I can't find anything there.

You mention SWS.

I don't bother with SWS so I'm afraid I can't help you.

Perhaps you should post something in the general forum as this isn't a theme thing as far as I can tell.
