Editing Cart details default

By Peter Jarrett - Tuesday, March 31, 2009 10:58:21 AM

Hi Marley,

If you hit the button on the toolbar to hide the descriptions, then when you go into smoothedit the 'focus' is already on the edit window (as the descriptions aren't there!) so then space will start it playing.

That may not be a great solution though, as obviously if you want to set intros extros etc. then you can't without displaying the descriptions.

I'll put a note in the to-do list and see if theres something we can do in a future version

I'm in the process of setting up a station and have to edit about 3000 carts in smoothedit. When I right click on a cart and open Smoothedit it defaults to track title for editing. As soon as I press space bar to play the track it deletes whatever is already in the track title. Very annoying!!

Is there anyway to stop the track title being the default editing point when you open smoothedit???

along this strand when the song goes into edit i would like to instantly zoom to the start of the song which i do using the zoom to left of selection but this button is only available to me if i press 'go to beginning' arrow which i am after already at then the magnification button becomes live.

Whether this could be sorted or a new button placed which is 'zoom to start' and one which is 'zoom to end' as most of the time that is all that is needed.

I have not had great success with the remove silence button (do you have recommended setting anyone?)

Hi All,

Good news for both Matt and Marley - both these have been included in the next release (v3.5.11 or higher)

Marley: Yours is a customise option that determines where to set focus

Matt: Yours was a bug thats now fixed.

Great News - thanks Peter.

Whilst you are at it could you sort it out so that there is a keyboard shortcut to save any changes and also the ability to jump each word in the title/artist fields by holding down the ctrl key and using the left and right cursor arrow keys.
