This question was asked by donnyl last year without any working answer. I'm trying again . . .
In list mode, the v14 themes make the active record display a different color. Upon investigation the colors turn out to be graphics and it's possible to change the graphic in the Inspector (Appearance tab / Graphic / Fill / Image / Slice / Choose ). I tried exchanging the graphic used for active records for the graphic used for non-active records. It sort of works. However, as PIC_1.JPG will show, the graphic doesn't stretch to the same length as the non-active records. Haven't found a way to fix it.
Any comments or solutions much appreciated? Thanks!
