There are some nice updates here. For touchscreen operation though, I wish the dead space on sides of the panels would be used for larger scroll bars (for rackspaces & songs). It’s hard enough to grab with a mouse, pretty much impossible with finger.
Its not the panels I want to scroll. Kind of the opposite. The list of songs (and rackspaces) on the left side. That’s what I referred to as difficult to grab that scroll bar even with a mouse, much less with a finger touch. It is a VERY skinny scroll bar. Both the left and right sides of the panels have huge real estate for grabbing and scrolling the panels themselves, but we don’t need both sides really. Or not as big. That way making more space for a wider/larger scroll bar for the songs/rackspaces scrolling.
Or, as an alternative, it would be nice if a similar system actions existed for scrolling songs/rackspaces.
When using a mouse (at home) it’s a non issue. However, live I use the touchscreen all the time. Although improvements have been made, the UI is still not 100% touchscreen friendly.
The finger swipe does not work on songs or rackspaces unfortunately. As soon as you touch it, it selects whatever is there. BTW, how does that work in your songs/rackspace extension? Is that swipeable?
And in my experience, many touchscreen monitors don’t react as well as an iPad. You take the risk to have a widget being triggered while you try the two fingers stripe.
When using a touchscreen in the rackspaces/variations list, it is also very easy to grab an element and to reorder it while you only wanted to select it. It happened several times to me.
Also in the blog article, it is explained how to move the vertical separator to enlarge the panel view. This is close to impossible to do with a touchscreen. It would nice to have a larger separator that works like the Global Panel separtor which is very easy to select on a touchscreen. But being able to enlarge the names in the rackspaces list, was already a game changer for the touchscreen user I am.
LOL I’ll probably have pictures, but let me brag a little if I may? It is the same band (or more accurately the outgrowth of that band with still some original members) that had the huge hit “nana na na,nana na na, heeey goodbye”. Except this version of the band is a much more fun and hip! Yes it’s an OLD song! The drummer was 17yrs old at the time, and the band was called Steam. Gig Performer tonight, as always, held up without a glitch!
