And I never had issues on the sequencer because I got changing backgrounds in FL Studio every 4 bars. When I look at the sequencer in Bitwig I like that I get thicker lines depending on the zoom, but they are barely noticable for me. This is how FL Studio looks (and I think in FL its customizable):
I strongly suggest that the title of this Feature request also becomes its content.
Meaning: that the wish for “Make Barlines more prominent” is not restricted to a specific area in bitwig, like the piano roll. Because each and every barline - everywhere, including the Clip-Launcher-View! - should be more prominent (or at least customizable to which extent it’s more prominent).
Concerning the Clip-Launcher-View i would add that a slight transparent coloring of the playing Clip, moving together with the playhead would greatly improve visibility of the play-status.
I also agree that the gridlines play an important role of play-head-orientation.
This is why i see this whole feature request as part of a “make the UI deeply customizable” request , but since the play-head visibility is the first thing to disturb many people, i really think it deserves this extra feature request here on its own.
This is definitely something I would like to see, as Im using a 32" 4k screen on a monitor arm for ergonomics, and sometimes the grid lines are hard to read when I am a foot or 2 away from the screen. This makes my eyes strain a bit and I would appreciate the higher contrast. Thanks!
