Some minor GUI glitches on build 3630. Nothing crucial but thought I could report them as some of them were part of my first impression of Cantabile.
Switching routing mode from menu
Current song is in routing mode “Routing Table”
Menu > View > Routing Diagram
If you immediately go back to Menu > View, “Routing Table” and “Routing Diagram” are greyed out, which is confusing.
You have to explicitly give the focus to the routing window to reactivate these options in the menu.
UI is sometimes difficult to control
Menu > View > Metronome Bar or Control-M brings up the Metronome Bar.
Menu > View > Metronome Bar again or Control-M again does not make it disappear.
You have to select the Metronome Bar and hit Shift-Esc which is not easily discoverable.
This is even more difficult because to have the focus, you have to click on a button of the Metronome Bar, not only in its “empty space”.
=> this also applies to Ticker Bar, Timeline and Online Keyboard
Default mapping for default zoom is strange
Control-1 by default whereas every other app I know use control-0
On Screen Keyboard - long press on ‘/’ removes focus from On Screen Keyboard
On my laptop keyboard, ‘/’ is at the far right of the bottom row, just before the right shift key. Hitting it shortly correctly plays note E. Long pressing it plays E shortly and then activate ticker bar.
Solution is to deactivate Hot Key for Ticker Bar but default mapping is confusing.
=> Other examples where default mapping conflicts: S, R…
On Screen Keyboard - some chords are not working
on a qwerty keyboard, bottom row of my laptop: C + N + M keys (E + G + A notes) only triggers two notes. All combinations of only one of those keys or two of those keys work as expected, but not the three of them.
Controller Bar lacks a Lock Mode
Controller Bar is a golden feature in Live Mode on my laptop’s touch screen.
However, I sometimes hit somehow in between two buttons and it resizes one of them. If I could lock the Controller Bar, I would not worry about that.
Also if possible in “Lock Mode”, a long press would not activate the right click (or just simply deactivate context menu).
Bottom display of Routing Diagram does not correctly updates upon song switching
Let’s imagine a scenario with Song 1, having only Plugin 1 and Song 2, having only Plugin 2.
In routing Diagram on Song 1, I select Plugin 1. Plugin 1 appears at the bottom of the routing diagram view.
If I select Song 2, Plugin 1 is still selected at the bottom of the routing diagram view for Song 2, which is confusing.
