Heya!! I’ve been Mia for bit and finally had a chance to drop in .6 on my portable rig.
I have some random ideas
The package browser:
If the card is mounted on a Mac it adds these junker files with a “._” prefix. Would be good to automatically hide these.
I also notice if you delete a file, after the pop up saying it was deleted, the selected file jumps all the way down to the last item in the folder.
Install package for lazy newbs like me
Another idea for the package manager is having an “install package” in the empty area where S2 is, so you could dump packages to the card without worrying about the packages folder (which would be the root folder on a direct drag and drop from desktop), press s2 to open a file browser to point to it… hit enter and the manager would move it to the proper folder and install it. This or perhaps an automatic search of the entire card and just populate the menu with what’s available?
Suggestion for the insert unit area (global pref).
If there was as option so only O|D units show up in the categories and then Each installed package shows up as it’s own category, with all units within. It gets a visually cluttered with a ton of units ie: ‘accents’ as each unit says that before the function.
Idea for the unit browser:
when skimming the unit browser, if you could ie: highlight a category, and press enter to collapse or expand the units within
GUI for Small screen when over a unit’s header
I think I may have brought this up a few years ago in .4 OS, but just wondering there’s any consideration for tweaking this a bit for more consistency (and clarity) by having the active row contain a shaded bg and bold text … like ie: the variable samples player’s header menu:
Anyway - totally digging all the tweaks regardless!
Hope all is great out there!
