Topic moved to "Audacity Artwork and Graphics" board.

What are you showing us? Is that a custom theme that you've made for Audacity?

The long reply I wrote was taken away by " I am not a robot " :(

1. I do not know how to code

2. This is a PNG from Inkscape

3. I can make complete mockup if required, but would need some help to make it an Audacity theme.

Audacity themes don't use SVG, they use a PNG file. See: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Theming_HowTo

Ok. Are you planning to keep it that way ?

If possible, can you tell me what the colour palette below do ? They are Audacity colour palette ? What if I change colours in it ? Thanks.

PS : I read the link.

The only information that I have about themes, is in the documentation. I rarely use any themes other than the built-in themes, though I have previously worked through the instructions (as per link) to check that they work.

Audacity uses a PNG image rather than SVG so as to be compatible with WxWidgets, which is the toolkit that Audacity uses for cross-platform support.

Hi there,

Maybe, to simplify things, we can try to experiment with an SVG file that can be exported to PNG and then consumed by Audacity.
Just an idea. What do you think?

Your toolbar is starting to look nice! But it looks unfinished.. would you like to continue? Looks like it has potential! 8-)

Thank you.
