Hello in case you miss my reply in the forum, here it is:
I can confirm that certain desktops DO NOT show menu icons or

containing eight possible colours and some midi 'assign' entries.
It seems that this desktop issue is affecting the colours not being shown.

'colour' selector when it's really supposed to be just a checkbox showing
whether the automation graph is displayed or not.
