track name on ruler in edit windows

Post by AbrahamMusicProject » Mon Oct 24, 2016 12:58 pm

While trying to move the cursor to the beginning of a part being edited via the ruler, the track name blocks the cursor/mouse. Clicking above the track name (in C8.5) only triggers the cycle mode. But entering the cycle mode is a general state and clicking anywhere on the editor time bar is equally convenient. Locating a specific cursor position is much more critical - for many reasons, and having to work around a track name interferes with workflow.

I suggest moving the track name up into the upper "cycle" lane rather than in the needed lower time/measure lane of the ruler.

Other possible solutions include making the track name "invisible" to the cursor or adding a toggle to see/hide track names during editing as desired.

Whatever resolves this would be much appreciated.

Thanks for listening.

If you toggle the "Show Part Borders" button (looks like two little flags, facing one another), the Part Name will disappear. ;)
