there is very little colour difference when audio is selected. The audio selection is an extremely important feature in Audacity as virtually all edits and effects are applied to the audio selection.
Thanks for feedback, totally agree. Here is a stronger highlight (not the best color selection, but whatever, I'm not a design guy either :) )

I agree that it's not the best color selection, but I disagree about you not being a design guy because the overall design of your theme looks terrific ;)

I've shown this theme to the Audacity developers and it received very positive comments.

Would it be OK for us to use this theme as the basis for a new theme option in Audacity? It probably wouldn't be the next release as we are getting towards the final testing stage, but if you agree then there's a good chance that it could be included in the next release plus one. If we do that, I'd like you to be credited, either in the code or the manual or both, so I would need to know what name to use in the credit.

Hey.
Thanks for the kind words.

Totally fine if you use it as basis for a new embedded theme - that's the perfect outcome having something bundled with the release.

All the icons are from https://feathericons.com/ (or some rough modifications of originals) - they are MIT so should be pretty easy to use.

No need for the credit, but if you do (up to you if you want to include the website as well, it's _kind_ of a competing product, in a very narrow field, in future :P, if I ever do it) that is:
