Move the active tune marker line to the background behind the spectrum trace.

When I try to tune CW signals, the bright yellow line on the Slice tuning bar obscures the pan/spectrum trace of the signal, making it difficult to center the CW signal on a narrow filter. Could we move the active tune marker line to behind the spectrum trace so it doesn't cover it up? Perhaps make it transparent, or make the trace transparent and the marker in the background?.

    Thanks for your input on this. You are not the only one that feels this way. We got input from two of our engineers to this same effect. Unfortunately we have already made the move to put the data line on top of the yellow/red Slice frequency line. I think the reality is that white doesn't show up well on a yellow background. We are looking at a few different ways of solving this. We would welcome other ideas.

    The problem is even more pronounced on SSB when the Slice info flag is displayed on top of the filter window. Perhaps you could put a frequency display on the top of the pan's border bar so that when the "A" or "B" button is selected that minimizes the slice display flag I can tune around with the flag gone, but still know what frequency I am tuning? That would help somewhat, but doesn't completely solve the problem. You could probably fit at least 4 slice frequency windows across the top of each pan window bar.
