This search field filters the elements to be displayed inside the table. This search field comes with two different modes, text search and color search . Let’s take a text search example to change the background of your mixer channels without having to browse manually. Type in “background” and the table we show every background elements such as “Channel strip background”. Color search takes Hex or RGB color values as an input (you can get the values from the color palette both in Hex or RGB). Using color search in cunjunction with the select all command (⌘ + A) is very handy to change one specific color that is shared across mulitple elements. Here is a demo of this little trick.
The Colorizer lists each element of logic’s graphic interface inside this “table”, these elements are grouped inside their relative interface section. You can think this grouping as folders containing multiple sub-folders. In this example we are accessing the bottom color value of the track header : Window > Tracks > Track Header > Background.
By Default this feature is deactivated in the bundled themes and newly created themes. When activated “Use Track Color” will color the background of each channels in the mixer with the color assigned via Logic’s Palette. If you wish to have other colors available in the Palette, please use the Palette editor. Please notice that this feature is not available in the demo of LPXColorizer and is only supported in Logic versions above 10.4.6
The color toolbox of logic can be edited direcly from the colorizer’s palette window. To open the window select Menu > Window > Palette or press ⌘ + 2.

The Palette view gives you access to all the colors defined in you themes. The dropdown menu at the top lists all the themes of LPX Colorizer. The number of occurences correspond to the number of UI elements set to this color. This view helps batch colouring themes via the Find and Replace function as it dynamically gives you an idea on the overall look of your theme.
The opacity sliderwill make you color more or less transparent, however bear in mind that it will blend with the the color of the element behind such as backgrounds behind buttons.
This section gives you quick access to colors. You can use the eye dropper tool to retreive a color value from any graphics displayed on your screen (you can use it to retreive colors of logic elements and search through the table using Hex search).
