Default Easier track color change!

Life would be easier if we could simply click or right-click in the highlighted area in the image to select a new color for tracks

The problem is, that the highlighted area is strictly theme dependent. You might want such area in different places depending on a theme. It means it cannot be arbitrarily set.
The solution could be adding an object to put it by a theme creator on some particular place of panel.
But I doubt results would justify the effort.

I agree that coloring could be easier in Reaper. There are scripts or actions that helps but on a fundamental level it should be two clicks max. Not a huge deal but there's definitely room for improvement.

there's two excellent scripts that can be accessed through the toolbar for track and item coloring. Check them out.

I know, ReaNoir and Colour Swatch, right?

I'm trying some different workflows, I'm trying with contextual toolbars right now, helps save some space and makes the daw clean

What could be faster than automatic color derived from track name?

I know it's off-topic, but speaking of that I wish we could set multiple filters in one box instead of having to create a new line for each one. So [guitar/gtr/piano/keyboard] for example.

Someone said you can put |AND| or |OR| between the words. But I can't get that to work. Not sure where I heard/read it.

Or even using regular expression.
I already filed an FR for such a feature some time ago to SWS.

the reaper v6 theme will come with a script for that. Track colors, track layout, mixer settings etc. all in one script. and it is dockable.
