Default Color Of MIDI Notes/Audio Waveforms

I am getting a new theme ready which looks slightly odd here
as I am having to look down at the LCD below me, that sits at
a 70 degree angle.
I have it doing exactly what I need with the exception of the
interior of the waveform, and MIDI notes.
They are currently black and I need to make them a solid white
or yellow color so the black Grid Lines are only seen inside of the
MIDI notes or waveforms.
I seem to be having difficulty as I can't remember what that
particular name it has in the media choices when I select the
Preferences for editing.

Thanks For Any Help

Thanks. I seem to have other issues making my goal of an all black background and black grid lines, difficult.
The second issue of not getting the Media Peaks the right color is due to the Normal, Add, parameters.
Is there a way to start from a default setting, like maybe Normal/Alpha 1.0 and everything white...?
Just something I can troubleshoot with, where the colors chosen are actually the colors shown...?

Thanks for your help, but there are obvious variables that cause the confusion I am involved in.
I had this right before, but that was a couple years ago, and I am sure it was a mistake I fell upon.
Sad that I am trying to recreate the mistke I made back then and liked.

Thanks For Your Help Dark Star.

Click on the Fill mode and set it to "Normal" and Alpha 1.00, as you suggested. Then experiment by changing one of them at a time.

Got it.
I must remember that when the Theme Editor Colors seem
to not be working, there's 2 rows in the preferences for
track tinting, and both rows need 2 be checked.

Ready for the bright lights after months of Reaper hiding.
I use Bidule for the hosting only, but for automations
and sync with clicks, etc. Reaper never fails.

Hopi's BLue meters are perfect too. Their blue tint make
sure that the waveforms and MIDI notes are the brighest
and are perfectly non distracting.

You're welcome.

Even and odd tracks? that's why I wrote only "Media item peaks ..."

After all of this we use it for a live metronome and cue track for the lighting director
and spot guy. On stage we have a Monome, so the custom audio wave is for click
and then notes will carry the countdowns for spots and scene changes.
Also audio seques from the ancient Eric Pershing CD called Distorted Reality
and Ilio Transfusion.
Reaper never crashes though and believe it or it's dark up in the catwalks so
these whiny Union bitches get thsi to help out and a fifth of Black Jack on
weekends. Even these schmucks will their high pay deserves tips for missing cues.

Thanks

And Hopi.
The 0-9 numbers are project tabs, next are the tracks and the last markers.
I never need drop down menus for anything.
Right click or toolbar icons is all I need.

Thanks Again chaps.
