Default How to change text coloring in FX and sends area

Does anyone know how to change background coloring in the FX and sends area? In my usual theme, Unempty Dark, the fx and send slots are a darker shade of the track color with gold writing when bypassed, and when they're not bypassed they are bright light blue with I believe the same gold letting...but without much contrast it's practically unreadable!

I'd like to know how to change the background color there, and the color that the FX/sends slots turn to when in various states. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks for the help in advance (this board always comes through)!

Uh, I may have stumbled upon it...I can swear that wasn't there before but oh how my eyes have deceived me!! Testing right now...

Crap, I've figured out the text colors but where are the background colors in various states of normal, bypass and offline?

You'll probably get more resonance in the Color Themes forum, but here is the gist of it:

The backgrounds as well as the slots in these areas are images in the image folder of the theme you are using. You will need to edit these images to change the appearance.

FX area background: mcp_fxlist_bg.png
FX slots: mcp_fxlist_empty.png, mcp_fxlist_norm.png, mcp_fxlist_byp.png, mcp_fxlist_off.png (no fx, normal state, bypassed, offline)

similar for the send area and the area for parameter knobs, but because of the moving parts and other differences there are some more images to tweak and names are a bit different. Look in the image folder for names starting with "mcp_sendlist_..." and "mcp_fxparm_...".

You can have different images for all of these on the master track. Basically that set of images would have the same name, but all starting out with "mcp_master_...", so master FX background would be "mcp_master_fxlist_bg.png". If these images don't exist, the normal (track) images are used.
