Dropdown for Folders when Saving..
« on: November 14, 2017, 07:21:22 PM »
Can we get a dropdown of the folders currently in AUM, when saving a project to folder?

At the moment I have to re-type the name of the folder each time. (I’m trying to organise my 100+ projects).

And the folder names are also case sensitive. So if you don’t use the upper and lower perfectly, AUM will add/create another folder. But the dropdown would solve this.

Cheers,

King

Off original topic:
I just want to suggest, regarding the AU midi discussion, 'Hexagons'.., flat side down (so it doesn’t look like a star) and with or without a circle around them.
I vaguely recall someone asking how people would recognise the nodes (midi vs Audio) at a glance.

At a stretch.. triangles...

Anyway, if this makes sense, excellent, if not, carry on as you were. :-))

Yeah, this might very well improve in the future.. It needs a larger UI change since "alert boxes" doesn't allow custom stuff, only buttons and text fields.

In the meanwhile, I recommend using the Files app in iOS to organize all session files into folders!

OIC it’s an “alert box” understandable... logical. (No drilling etc..)

Yeah I’ll take a look at the files app for organising. Used it but not too often yet, but that should do it, also because AUM won’t allow me to create a new folder unless I’m Saving a project. Would have been nice to create a bunch, then save projects to them ‘rapidly’.
I’ll do some experimenting in files n update post..

Added: cheers for the folders anyway, it’s something I was meaning to ask for but didn’t get round to it.

Just did a quick test in files, all is well. Checked in AUM, and the new folder I created (in files) which contained the moved project I just put in it,  was at the top of the list.

Excellent!

Update!

One small issue with this new folder feature:
If I quit AUM, and restart, then reload last session, then save session, it does not auto bring up the folder the session is in. So again I have to remember the folder name and re-enter it.
It brings up the project name though.

If it’s not doable from the load screen, maybe the last session could be above the folders list, as an option to load. At the moment we have to go into the top folder to load the last session (if we want to save with the auto-folder thingie attached.

I know you said “this might very well improve in the future”.
The future may be here ;)

Cheers,

King

Good point! Will look into it.

^ Only thing is: we're having to hide the keyboard to access the jumping..
