|0001222||OpenMPT||[All Projects] Feature Request||public||2019-04-16 20:31||2019-04-21 16:16|
|Status||closed||Resolution||no change required|
|Product Version||OpenMPT 1.28.04.00 / libopenmpt 0.4.4 (current stable)|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001222: Instrument Search and Delete|
I think there should be an option to search if an instrument has been used somewhere in a song. If it is not used, there should be an option to delete it and its accompanying sample(s). These feature ideas will allow for a song to not have any unused instruments.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Has the bug occurred in previous versions?|
|Tested code revision (in case you know it)|
Edit -> Cleanup?
I didn't know that option was there. I may have 2 1/2 years of experience with OpenMPT, but there are still several features I have yet to learn. No, my feature request is a little different.
Scrapping the second part of what I mentioned earlier, I think there should be a button next to each instrument or sample. Its purpose is to check if a sample is used in a song, and display back each of the patterns the sample is used in. This might be handy if one is making a large song with many instruments, and is unsure if he's used that instrument in the song. The Cleanup tool could then be used to remove all unused instruments if necessary.
But why would you want to have a button for each sample? It contradicts the use case you describe, "removing all unused instruments". If you are sure you want to keep a so far unused instrument, put a note in the pattern and it will no longer be removed.
After second consideration, as well as exploring the Cleanup option, I too have realized that this is a redundant option. Perhaps it sounded better in my head.
