Ah.  The height of the mode-line.  Hadn't thought of that.  Thanks for the tip.

Yup. I've diddled the mode-line already.  However, I have a big screen, and
I cover most of it with emacs.  I find that the mode-line is relatively
small in that case, and even if I set it to  a rather bright colour, I often
can't tell which window is active.
I can understand the mode-line being enough for an 80x24-ish display, but I
run emacs at 160x60.

Play a bit with this customisation:

 '(mode-line ((t (:background "magenta" :foreground "black" :height 1.5 :family "bauhaus 93"))))
 '(mode-line-inactive ((t (:inherit mode-line :background "PaleTurquoise1" :foreground "grey20" :box (:line-width -1 :color "grey75") :height 0.875 :weight light :family "times unicode"))))

In GNU Emacs 24.0.50 I've seen a variable mode-line-in-non-selected-windows. It gives you easy access to customising the `mode-line' and `mode-line-inactive' faces. My example is just something to play with. And see the effect.



What is this talk of 'release?' Klingons do not make software 'releases.'  Our software 'escapes,' leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
