UI themes allow you to change the look of Cakewalk. Cakewalk includes several themes to choose from, and more will become available in the future. Choose one of the themes that best suits your preferences. You can further customize themes by changing colors of various UI elements.A UI theme only contains images and colors, and will not change Cakewalk features or behavior in any way. All UI elements retain their size and position when you switch UI themes.Figure 86. UI themes.
