    I totally agree with Gare about the blue. Another thing I noticed that bothers me is the dark brown background on the Xart logo, it is too close in value to the blue check mark and the check mark gets almost lost as a result.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    OK currently the blue is gradient starting at #FF3AABF9 and ending with #FF4249F5. What would you like them changed to as this seems to be a hang up on answering my actual question. Also, here is the logo to play with. I don't have the Xar file.

    Grace,
    Here are some of my color experiments. They are down and dirty so just view with a grain of salt. The two largest are similar to what you have except for the check mark.
    I have not yet reached any conclusions. But I do have my favorites.

As it stand right now there is nothing that shows you that you are allowed to change the current value but not the other two. So, we need suggestions.
    I agree that the middle column seems redundant and find it even confusing. I would suggest to change "Current Value" to "Set Value". To make clear that you can only change the values in the "Set Value" column I suggest adding arrows and padlocks to the respective sliders.

    I agree with the comments about the blue interface. It is quite jarring.

    I also have a question: what do the pictograms at the bottom of the interface stand for?

    I really like the arrows and locks - Thanks. Do you think you could post a .xar file with them in it, please?

    I also have a question: what do the pictograms at the bottom of the interface stand for?
    I wondered that myself - they stand for ''undo", ''reset to defaults'', ''read values'', ''save values'', I think something a bit less cryptic will be implemented.

    Thanks again

    I tried to put a few things together and present an alternative to the blue interface and logo. I only prepared half of it because that should give a good enough impression of what is possible.

    When I replied yesterday half of what I wrote got lost. I said that I really liked your ideas and would it be possible to have .XAR file with the buttons.
    Thanks

    I attached the .xar file for the above interface mock-up. Sorry that the file is a bit messy because I put it together as I went along.

    The logo is attached here as vector art, and I used one of Larry's color schemes. Thanks to Mind's Eye for the treatment of the "art" portion, and I believe the subordinate text is Adobe Myriad Condensed Bold (or Black).
