Title: Add "But only adjust tempo every....." to first dialog shown for Changing Tempo
Post by: Black6host on October 10, 2012, 07:38:12 AM
Greetings,

Would it be possible to to have "But only adjust tempo every...." appear on the first dialog screen for Changing Tempo?

I prefer to increase BPM by measure, at the moment, and can set everything up on the first screen without hitting "More" except for that one field.

Thanks!

Thanks, I'll take a good look at the design and see what I can do.

There are some controls that could be left out of that window but not sure how to handle that, because they are things you might want to access also at this stage, and it is already perhaps a bit large for a "least" version of the windows.

On the other hand though the next size up is a rather large window with lots of options for configuring the gradually changing tempo stepping progression in great detail.

So - maybe the solution is to expand that version just a bit more, and then make a smaller version with fewer controls for those who just want to set the start and finish tempo (say), and not much else, similar to the Basic metronome.

It's bound to be a bit of a compromise as things that are important to some musicians are rarely used by other musicians and vice versa. So for instance some might want to work with the advanced stepping progression fields or whatever and want those controls all in the smaller version of the window.

But will see what I can do about it, this compromise of making the existing window one line of controls higher, and then making a less version which is much simpler than the existing one may be a solution. Will try it out and see what it feels like and how it goes.

Thanks,
