Bug Description

- The waveform overview shows loop markers, but the colors are not customizable via skin.
- The cue point is not shown on the overview waveform, while hot cues are.
- Hot cue markers in overview waveform need to be customizable (or at least thin lines matching the skin hot cue color instead of large digits)

We're going to have to handle this in 1.8.1 unfortunately.

Making this one of my priorities for 1.9.0. Could use feedback from Jus on how this would work ideally.

I'll try to implement it in waveform-2.0

Ok little feedback here a creen shot of what customisable cue and hot-cue looks like in the branch.

I'll probably need some help to update all skins. cause now hot-cues need to be explicitly declared in each <Overview> to be connected and displayed.

Any volunteer ? It's realy simple but need to be tested againt all the skins ...

Hi Thomas, thanks for tackling this too.
You really do not have to update all the skins, your demo in LateNight1280x800-WXGA is a good enough. The skins are subject to significant change once we have the 1.11 feature freeze and all the features are merged into trunk.

Some comments on the changes to the waveform overview.:
* Hotcues >4 are not displayed. Is this intentional? We allow up to 36 hotcues per deck ( and they are displayed at the main waveform) even if we have only 4 of them visible in the GUI per default.
* Can`t use <Pixmap> to declare custom graphics for Loop/Cue marker just like we can for the main waveform ( as seen in the Deere skin). No biggie, would be nice to have though.

* At the main waveform all the markers are draws behind the waveform , they should be on top. It`s fine on the waveform overview.
* At the main waveform the loop overlay is drawn behind the waveform while is drawn on top of the waveform overview.
* Loop overlay at the main waveform has different alpha then at the waveform overview , the latter has better visibility imo.

For full hot-cues support, we just need to add all hot-cues in skins.
The render stack orders (mark/loop/signal) should be fixed by now.
I'll see if I can quickly add loop alpha customization. Cause I guess any value I can choose will be wrong at some point depending skin designer color choices :).

Thanks for all those feed-backs it make every changes I make a lot more useful !
