hello, i would like to change the colors of bitwig with the file "default.themes" , but this one is not load by bitwig (i delete all the lines nothing changes, and i change colors and neither nothing changes ). - I would like to know if file is loaded by bitwig? - should we use a file in the "appdata" folder to pass over the one in the "programefile" ? - Will you put a theme loader system?

I have a friend who works under ableton but would like to go under bitwig, but the dark interfaces do break him head so I would like to change the interface for more brighter without changing the windows color.

I agree with you

Bitwig Heroes. Please. Please. I know this it may not seem that important if its not important to yourself to have custom themes. But custom colorpalette/theme settings would really drive sales up if bitwig theme could be customized. I really am sensitive to such stuff and would gladly have jumped into bitwig earlier if there was a theme-customization thing. A colorpalette can be inspiring and pleasing. Bitwig theme is functional and overall good, but its not very inspiring. Many people I know dont even like orange. It would probably one of the easiest to implement saleboosters you could reach for. I would be so happy. If I could choose my colors I would guve ut a more techno-laboratory-like look. If you could at least make some api or folder where people can customize some files, that would already suffice. Thank you for all your hard work.

+1 Its a scientific fact that some people are more sensitive to different senses. i.e. some people are smell, some people are visual, some people are whilst something might not bother one person it could affect someone else a lot. Some people are just more sensitive to GUI themes than others and I am very sensitive to them regarding creativity. I had to go over to Live with a custom theme for the time being (see the walkman preset on Ableton themes - I use that with a darker blue) because the whole GUI colour thing in Bitwig feels 'dirty brown' to me and I just find it depressing to work with, whilst on the other hand I love the functionality in Bitwig and want to be able to continue using it. My wishlist: Ability to swap out the orange for other colours Full control over the darkens/hue of the grey. Control the colour of the empty space background. Black empty space really distracts me. Flat interface option (feels like there is too much 3d everywhere and feels cluttered. I really hope they have something planned. A Gamma slider just isnt enough.

I would love to see this in bitwig. Adding little touches of my own style flavour always make it's feel more homely. I would particually like the to have the arranger window dark it would make everything feel more unified for me personally.

Agree, at least give us an access to edit system theme file

There are also too many colors in bitwig. My first steps in the software were frightening. In particular : in the inspector the color picker should be hidden (or just a small menu) : i personnaly rarely use it... and this an eye catcher. This si totally meaningless.

Hey dev's i don't know if you watch these threads but i know it would be greatly appreciated by us users to have the ability to personalize our work environment in bitwig. If you've so much as changed the wallpaper on your own machines or have picture or plant at your workstation then i think you understand how much the little details like that make it feel more like 'your space.'
