#294835 Latest EOF releases (10-30-2019)

Posted by Billkwando on 13 October 2018 - 07:10 PM

Hi all!

 

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I'd like to make a feature request for EOF.

 

Current behavior: When you click on a note and hit N to change the fret number, you have to click in the box to change the fret number, and your mouse pointer has to continue to hover over the text box, otherwise, the cursor disappears and keyboard input does nothing

 

Expected behavior: Once you click into the text box, the cursor should stay there, regardless of mouse position.

 

The problem for me is the way I chart by hand/by ear, I usually have guitar in my lap and a keyboard and mouse on the couch next to me. So with my left hand, I click in the box, and then reach over to the keyboard, and by the time I get there, the mouse has moved slightly and I can't type, and have to go back and mouse over the box again and try to type a 2nd time. It's just super fiddly is all.

 

What I would love to see: When selecting a single note and hitting N (or hitting Next), it would be nice if the cursor was already in the text box, behind the number, ready for backspacing (or in front, for deleting, lol).

 

This may sound stupid, but when I chart by ear, I sync a blank "click track" GP tab to the song in GPA, then I import it into EOF to get the sync. Then, I just go through the track first putting open notes for every note/chord I hear in the song, and then I go back and fill the notes in one at a time, using N or Next, as I check them on the guitar. Then I just copy and paste the repeating parts (I have overwrite on) correcting variations when needed. It's less daunting to me to do it in stages, and I can recheck my note positioning with a fresh perspective as I'm adding the fret numbers in.

 

Does that make sense? Anyway, it would be greatly appreciated and make my hand charting soooo much faster.

 

I have a Tom Waits song that I'm dying to do, but the whole thing is noodling, and I'm dreading the frustration of trying to plug all those notes in, while trying to decipher the notes by ear as I go. the way it's handled currently.

 

Sorry for writing a novel, and thanks! :D

 




#240569 23rd/24th fret notes and RS Remastered

Personally I don't see what would be the downside of that.

 

 

I just want to make sure it doesn't cause any other problems.

 

I agree with both of you! :D

 

I didn't even know this was an issue until Imi told me personally. This seems like the sort of thing that should be in the red banner up top! LOL :D

 

But hey I'm a charter, everything charty seems mission critical to me!

 

 

Edit: I thought this thread was older than it is....looks like this is a new discovery.
