GUI colors

Post by chris vine » Mon Oct 26, 2020 12:44 pm

Quick question - I just installed 10.1.25 (after my previous version did a brain dump and appeared as a new installation, requesting authorisation 8O ) and all the dark themes are REALLY dark and clip colors are almost flourescent ( in the tweak options they go from super dark to super light and not much inbetween).

Am I imagining this?

Thanks

What theme is selected there, do you have custom themes installed?

That's the Live 10 Dark theme.

So to continue the story - I had a similar problem with Live 9 today, after having Black screen and no boot up, right before an online gig...ugh. (Live 9 looking like a new installation and asking to authorize). Meanwhile, the Live 10 theme colors went back to normal. Once I did a reboot, Live 10 themes returned to this weird super dark coloration.

I use Live 9 32 bit for playing live as it is more stable (on my system). My live set has randomly spitting CPU with Live 10.

I am assuming there is a major problem happening with my PC or Windows. But only the Ableton Live app seems to be affected, and I have no idea why this random dumping of preferences and authorizations has happened.

I emailed support.

My guess is it is a video driver/card issue but have never seen anything like that before

Solved.

As soon as I chose force Live to use Integrated Graphics as opposed to NVIDIA, the wierdness went away.
