Summary0004930: Make bar-lines thicker, or distinguish adjacent bars more obviously
DescriptionIn the editor view, I think it is very hard to distinguish the bars' lines from the beats', especially when you are zoomed in. I'd like the bar line to be thicker, or even better: every second bar should have a brighter or darker background. That would make it very clear.

rev 12776 sees a small change to help with this.

unfortunately the lines are required to all be the same width for the foreseeable future, and alternating the color for each bar would be very, very expensive in graphics costs.

i think the color change is fairly effective for now.

Not sure how to give feedback here, as I can't really see a change. Maybe you could make the colour whiter? Now they're gray-ish, aren't they?

you can experiment with the colors yourself in the Theme Manager window. Look for "measure line bar" and "measure line beat". i'm done playing around with this myself.

Oh, that's cool! Hard to find another colour that's good looking though... But they're much more visible now.

Changed the default 'beat' color to match the Tempo Curve color. This provides better differentiation from the white measure lines, and color-coordination with the bpm curve as well.
