One thing I keep needing to do is jump into the MIDI route settings dialog and transpose the route up or down by an octave or two. What I find myself doing is selecting all the text in the “Transpose” box (which typically says something like “+1.0 - up 1 octave”, and typing 2 and return or whatever. One thing I’d find really good from a smooth workflow perspective would be up/down octave buttons, so I could use a single click instead of selecting all and entering text. The up/down transpose buttons by semitone are great, but for me I find myself transposing by octave more frequently, so a pair of dedicated octave buttons would be really great.
Actually, the three text boxes in that dialog (lowest note, highest note and transpose) all have the same behaviour whereby when you click to focus, you need to select all the text before you can type another value, which is one of those little things that become irritating if you’re doing it a lot. Since I suspect the typical use when clicking in these boxes is to enter a new number, rather than edit the existing text, perhaps making the text boxes become fully selected as soon as focus enters from a mouse click would be worth considering?
Another little thing would be to maybe revisit the way text appears in the transpose box, as it often gets cropped at the most important bit:
Also if you use the mouse wheel on that transpose box, the text then becomes right-justified, so the +1.3 or whatever gets lost. Maybe making the text more compact could help, with unicode arrows and abbreviating to “oct” etc. In fact since there’s already a + or -, I wonder if “up a” and “down a” are redundant? There’s a lot to squeeze into this little box!
Incidentally, I love the way I can enter something like “1.3” for an octave and a minor third in that transpose box, and how the range boxes are equally happy with “A4” or 69, depending on how you like to work.
