Default Tip: Show Folder Indent

I use a lot of folders and found that I was sometimes screwing up my entire mix by accidentally hitting the folder indent button and not seeing what I did. Another fine user showed me how to simply draw something in my "folder_indent.png" and get a great indicator. I simply drew a yellow 1 pixel wide vertical line and that did it for me.

I hope it helps someone else too. I really like this ability to see indent levels.

This file is found in your unzipped theme. For me it is in:
C:\Users\myuser\AppData\Roaming\REAPER\ColorThemes \Default_4.0_unpacked

yeah... helpful idea...

sadly there is a long standing bug in WALTER regarding the png file that designates the last track in a folder...

Cubic13 has documented this but it has never been fixed... [DEV's wtf?]

I have a theme that uses a folder start png, a 'next' folder for however many are in the nest, and then another png for the end.. but very sadly the 'last' or end does not work [bug]...so we had to modify the theme to just not use that png.... bummer to me cuz it was quite a bit of graphic work to get all those very special pngs to look right.
here is a picture of how we had to not use the last track png...

Done, Good tweak. This should be a Reaper standard.

I agree. I'm glad you liked it ! It's too easy to indent wrong and have all the audio borked. This makes it a glance away to verify.
