    my panels had been designed for ctrlr v 5.4.29.
    I’d really like to upgrade to v6 (starting time 1sec vs 10sec…) , but the ’rounded corner’ 3D buttons do absolutely not suit the panel design.
    it there a way to
    – suppress the 3D effect of buttons?
    – decrease the button corner rounding (in the worst case I could use corner connect, it’s not perfect but would be ok)

    I played with look&feel but this messes up the entire panel (with buttons in different colours depending on the group they are embedded in etc)

    Any ideas?

    Hi Franky,

    I wouldn’t recommend using version 6 at all yet — I think there are problems when loading as a VST instance for one thing and 5.4.29 I think has a problem too. From memory I don’t think you can load images to the panel, or maybe that was 5.5.2? – but either way the consensus is that the most stable version for Windows is 5.3.201 and Mac 5.3.198.

    Definitively correct: make your panels in 5.3.201 (Windows) or 5.3.198 (Mac) and forget the more recent versions unless of course willing to experiment, support development and debugging.

    thanks for the replies. The reason why trying to upgrade: I added massive utils.warnWindow() to the panel. Now when loading a panel to a 2nd tab, there’s a ‘bulk popup’ of all those windows (but also of utils.openFileWindow, os.execute(), etc).
    Personally I’m used to closing the ‘old’ panel before loading a new one, but users are not and usually load new panel versions without closing the old one, thus flooding their display with ~ 100 popup windows.

    Following your recommendation I tried 5.3.201 – same result.

    Ctrlr V6 does not have this problem (fast starting time is a nice side effect).

    PS. apart the popup flooding no problems with 5.4.29, the panels are stable and can load images.
