StoneAged, I’ll try to answer to your troubles step by step.
Using the bar at bottom, cannot get the timeline to advance beyond a certain point in the song.
The length of the Pianoroll time axis is forced by the length of the current MIDI part you’re editing. The range goes form the beginning of the part to the last MIDI note.
We can improve this behaviour by adding more room to the scroll page.
When trying to select a range, cannot get the time line to scroll, making it difficult to select anything outside of the current screen. (This is possible in the regular timeline.)
The pianoroll timeline automatically scrolls when you perform a temporal selection from the pianoroll time axis, it doesn’t when you perform a free selection of the MIDI events, drawing a selection rectangle in the workspace using the mouse (if it’s what you meant).
We’re evaluating to add this behaviour also on the workspace free selection.
Multiple paste: If a value of several measures is entered, the pasted notes gradually shift from measure to measure.
Or, today, depite selecting measure 11 for paste from, it pastes from somewhere in measure 4 and, in addition, ignores the number of repetitions.
I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue. Could you please send me a list of actions that step by step lead to the problem?
When playing back a MIDI track, it suddenly stopped. Discovered you had to go to the regular view and manually extend the length of the track.
What do you mean by “Playing back a MIDI track”? Playing the song with the the MIDI track soloed? Is there any error or warning message that shows up after the stop? Or does the playback stop after reaching the end of the song?
Sometimes, when I switch back to the MIDI editor, it unknowningly defaults to eraser, resulting in unintended results upon clicking.
Please remember that the editing tool can be also selected by hitting the keys Alt or Ctrl.
Step recording stops working.
I’ve tested the Step recording and it seems to work properly. Maybe the problems you’re experiencing are due to a particular configuration you’re using. Could you please zip and send the program data folder ("C:\Users[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\n-Track Studio 9), excluding the “Sounds” folder if there’s one, to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that I can try to reproduce the issues using your configuration?
(The App Data folder may be hidden, to show it from the Windows folder window, press the Alt key, then click on the View menu -> Options-> View tab, then activate the 'Show hidden files, folders, and drives’.)
