    First: Please stop shouting. We can hear fine.

    Second: As to your question, the background colors are defined by these lines in the Settings.txt file in the TSRE5 folder.
    colorConView = #aaaa99
    colorShapeView = #aaaa99
    You can change the color during a TSRE-CE session but there is no save feature that I have found. You can however edit those lines in the settings.txt file with any text editor. And they remain the same unless you change them or the settings.txt file gets overwritten which happens when a new version is released, downloaded and installed.

    I keep a copy of my edited settings.txt file to restore my edits when I install a new version of TSRE.

    Seems odd to have the ability to change the color within the app when the only place to set it permanently for everytime use is in the settings.txt (2 disjointed functions). Something seems a little backwards to me.

    The same (no save feature) also holds true for other features like opening a second ENG list or setting filters (as in ENGs or WAGs only) for the lists.

    I haven't been able to get the shape viewer, in the route editor, background color to change with changes to the settings.txt.
    Is this even an option?
    When I work in the route editor I stretch the window across two monitors. I fill the left monitor with the properties and the main view and pull the tools, navi window and shapes view over to the right one. Would be nice if TSRE remembered this.
