Default Color Themes: Edit Cursor Triangle Border

The new triangle on top of the edit cursor is great!


But:

There's a border around it which looks bad IMO. Especially because the color of the border is linked to the color setting of "Timeline backgound (in loop points)".

See edit-cursor.png


IMO it would look much better (more sharp and not that large) without this border.

Agreed, it looks a bit odd here.

Nice that you all agree on this.


Here how I've tweaked the colors in my theme to get rid of the border:

edit-cursor-tweaked.png


-> note the 1 pixel space between the triangle and the cursor

=> this looks very good at the original zoom-level. much better as if there were no space between the triangle and the cursor!

Ok, then we need a setting to define this border color independent from the color of "Timeline backgound (in loop points)" ...

+1 for separate control of the triangle's border.

Almost a 12-year necro-bump. Kudos

But it now has its own Theme Tweaker entry: MIDI Editor cursor.

PS you might like to change "MIDI Editor time selection fill mode" to "Normal 0.25"
