Default Any way to get all 'text' buttons for everything?

I know how to get them on the toolbar - it's great for the way I work. I'd like to apply that same thing to the channels. I'm providing a picture of the theme I've adapted to my own style (Dark Terminal). Basically, I'd like to do away with button images entirely, and just replace them with actual text.

Not too easily, if I understood your question correctly. You'd have to replace each button image with a text image. IOW you'll have to make a blank button background image and text inside it for every button. Not only that, but since those buttons come in variety of sizes, unless you want to resize every image and make required rearrangements for them in the theme (rtconfig)...you could have hard time fitting clear enough text into them.

Ugh... Well, thank you for that - that's already what is happening in the current theme. I am dreaming of one day having just an opportunity to replace all images with text and colors alone. No images unless necessary.

You have the option to make every toolbar button text, yes. But if you mean elsewhere, that's theming. Right click the toolbar, then right click any entry and make it a text icon.

Interesting how your dream is my nightmare... Every time I have to read multiple things to find what I want there's a good chance I'll forget before I make it there.

Yep, already figured out how to make the toolbar icons 'text'. I'm using Reaper as more of a mastering/sound-design template, so my needs are different. If text isn't your gig, I'd imagine working with a tracker-sequencer would just be awful

Check out the tracker interface I attached! I'd like to get Reaper more in line with something like that (and it's pretty close!), because my need for the majority of Reaper is nominal.

Well I actually started on buzz. Wouldn't go back to trackers but I still really like the routing system from buzz. If you're after something like that, have you seen This?

Thanks for sharing that! Yep, I found that a few years ago when I started using Reaper. I still prefer Renoise, which is what I use on a near-daily basis. I just like using Reaper as a mastering tool versus a DAW - and I really dig text buttons
