Default 4 theme questions for White Tie

Question #1: Underlay Images
----------------------------------------------
Is it possible to get "underlay" images in addition to the "overlay" images?
using the mute button overlay as an example:
mute_off.png
mute_off_ol.png

proposed mute "underlay" example:
mute_off.png
mute_off_ul.png

Reason:
the overlay file overlays everything that is not also an overlay.
The best example of this as an issue is with shadows.
If setting the track label to slide over and hide a button with a shadow, the button gets hidden as expected, but the button's shadow still shows.
The only work around I've found is to include the shadow in the button image.
This makes the button's target click area much larger than the button image and creates another issue.


Question #2: Yellow Lines for Buttons
----------------------------------------------
is it possible to get yellow lines to work in the button files?
this would alleviate part of the issue in question #1


Question #3: True Image Swap
----------------------------------------------
is it possible to get an actual image swap for other elements besides the knob stacks?
This would allow a different image to be used depending on the size.
It would be very beneficial to have this ability for buttons, labels, fader caps, etc.

Default Question #4: Sub-Menus For Layouts

Question #4: Layout Sub-Menus
----------------------------------------------
is there a way to expand the layout menu into sub-menus?
This would make navigating the menu much faster.
Take the case of fader colors as an example:
If you have the initial layout and then 4 fader colors, you now have 5 layout entries in the menu for what is basically a single layout with 4 options for that layout.
If you have 5 layouts with 4 additional fader colors, you now have 25 entries to navigate instead of just seeing the initial 5 and then chosing the fader option for the layout you've chosen.

The current menu looks like this:



Sub-menus would make it look like this:




Navigation is clearly much faster in the second one.

They make sense. Of course sub-menus would be really useful with templates with lots of layouts.

Wish they made a low-res, 1 screen version of White Tie.

I have a 2560 x 1600 retina … but the font was too tiny. It was made for ants.
