Desktop Calendar - disable alternating colors for months?

When using the Desktop (FULL) calendar, the months alternate between light and dark colors. Is there a way to modify the theme to make it just one continuous color?

If you're using the Pro version, you can adjust any of the colors on the desktop calendar or main window by using the "Customize Appearance Theme" command on the Tools menu. This includes the color used for alternating months.

Here's how to change the color of alternating months on the desktop calendar:
1. On the Tools menu, click "Customize Appearance Theme".
2. In the Theme Editor window, click the "Load" button.
3. Open the file named "Midnight.isl" in the folder where VueMinder was installed (usually "C:\Program Files (x86)\VueSoft\VueMinder").
4. Move the mouse over a date in an alternate month. A "Role Selection" popup will appear.
5. Press the 1 key. A Settings window will appear.
6. Click the "Other States" tab at the top of the Settings window.
7. In the Background section of the Settings window (on the left side), click the color drop-down. The current color is RGB(21,21,21). Select black or RGB(0,0,0).
8. Click the "Save" button to save the updated theme.
9. Close the Theme Editor.
10. Right-click the VueMinder icon in the task tray and select "Exit".
11. When VueMinder restarts, you'll see the desktop calendar is using the updated theme.

If you're using the Lite version or don't want to learn how to use the Theme Editor, I've attached the updated theme. Unzip this to the folder where VueMinder was installed (overwriting the current file) and then restart VueMinder.
