Hello,

have a look at my volume control.
How can I change the design of it?

Thanks a lot!

Devin,

I have seen that same pattern previously on one machine. If I remember correctly, it was related to the theme, the video driver, or the refresh rate. My friend did some fiddling, and I never heard any more about it. It was months ago, but I remember commenting on how it looked odd in comparison to what I had regularly seen. Perhaps that might point you in the direction of verifying settings. Good luck, and please post back with an update.

I've noticed this too. Not sure about a fix. Interested in the solution.... keep us posted.

Ah, OK, now I have done some fiddling of my own. It is no wonder that I never see this pattern on my machines. It is related to the default Elyssa theme. Since the default colors are too dark for my eyesight, I have always immediately changed the controls to Human Blue. That changes the panel background, as well as the drop-down volume control. Those "stratifications" do not show up in the Human Blue controls. Now we know from whence it comes, but still not sure how to fix it. Well, besides changing the controls to another them, that is. See if your control change makes a difference on your end. Have fun!

Yepp, same result here. But I find the Elyssa-theme most attractive......so I have to live with this weird mixer..... :(

A bug?

Not sure if it is a bug or not. I am going to consider it an artistic design enhancement to give depth and texture to the volume control slider background. It is obviously a feature! :D
