This list shows different areas where color can be adjusted. Choosing one of these categories helps
filter out screen elements you may not want to deal with at the moment. The categories also provide a convenient way to adjust brightness, hue, and saturation of a related collection of screen elements without hunting through a long list.

change. You can change multiple Elements simultaneously by CTRL-clicking or CTRL-dragging. Click Select All
to select all screen elements in the current color category.
This field lets you choose the same color for a highlighted item in the Screen Element
list that Microsoft Windows uses for certain screen elements. For example, because Windows usually uses black for button text, if you highlight Window Background in the Screen Element
list and then click Button Text
in the Follow System Color
field, all the window backgrounds in SONAR turn black (or whatever color you have set up for button text in your Windows preferences).
Choosing this option instead of the Follow System Color
option allows you to pick a specific color for the highlighted item in the Screen Element
list. Click the Choose Color
button to open the Color
dialog box, click the color you want, and click OK
. The highlighted item in the Screen Element list changes to the color you chose.
Pressing the Reset
button resets the Brightness
, and Saturation
sliders to default values.
This button opens the Import Color Set
dialog box, which allows you to import a color arrangement, or a group of presets.
This button opens the Export Color Set
dialog box, which allows you to export a color arrangement, or a group of presets.
