    Selected clip highlight in bin clip view

    I could wish for a more noticeable highlight of the selected clip in the bin in clip view - I'm often working with chronological sequences, where I might work on a clip for several minutes, then want to find the next clip - though I can check the clip number on the timeline or source viewer, my eyes naturally go to the bin with all the clip icons, and I must admit that it is sometimes hard to see which clip is currently highlighted - perhaps the selected clip could have a brighter clip name highlight, or a coloured frame around the selected clip - this would make it much easier to scan the bin.

    If such highlighting could be irritating to other users, then perhaps it could be a user defineable option - bin>selected clip highlight> colour and/or frame?

    thanks.

    If you go to Project window > Settings tab > Interface you can change the color of the highlights (although this color also will apply to the rest of the UI), as well as the brightness (or darkness) of the entire UI, and the background color of the bins. You may be able to find a combination you like better than what you have now.

    Thanks Carl - nice to see that your 24 hour service also covers weekends :) (Respect)

    The interface menu was where I started when looking at this, but sadly one can only alter the colour of all highlights, and if I choose a brighter highlight colour here this makes the entire GUI cluttered with highlights IMHO.

    I was hoping for a "selected clip in bin highlight colour" specific setting :)
