|0000667||OpenMPT||Feature Request||public||2015-03-15 20:50||2017-06-08 20:42|
|Reporter||LPChip||Assigned To||Saga Musix|
|Target Version||OpenMPT 1.27.01.00 / libopenmpt 0.3.1 (upgrade first)||Fixed in Version||OpenMPT 1.27.01.00 / libopenmpt 0.3.1 (upgrade first)|
|Summary||0000667: Follow song off when clicking inside pattern|
If you play the song with follow-song on, and you click somewhere in the pattern, the cursor jumps there then immediately is snapped back to the playing cursor.
I tend to forget this, so I start entering data and it enters it at the wrong place. So I'd like an option to automatically disable follow song when I click inside the pattern to move the cursor to that location. Could possibly also be triggered with the up and down arrow (the rest not obviously)
|Steps To Reproduce|
Check the Follow Song option, start playing, then click anywhere in the pattern.

|Tested code revision (in case you know it)|
Oh, I like this idea! I think it's pretty universal that if the user is clicking in the pattern during playback, he probably needs to edit. So Follow Playback can be turned off. Maybe an extra option would also set the Loop Pattern ON so that playback stays in the pattern while he edits.
The only time that I've ever needed Follow Playback to stay on is when I'm checking what a certain Command is (such as SA3 or X11) in the fourth column of a particular channel. Perhaps we can have an override like Alt to NOT turn off Follow Playback when we click in the PE.

Why would it have to be a hidden option?
Because the options dialog is already crammed with options. These kind of behavioral options that only affect a small number of people are best left out of the interface, unless you want to confuse absolutely everyone.
why dont you listen the track and if you like you uncheck the follow song checkbox?
The problem is that I forget that follow song is turned on. If I didn't forget about it, I would not even need this feature request. I'm a man of habits. Most of the time I work on auto pilot to work faster than most people. I'm already entering notes in my mind before I pressed a key in the keyboard, so when I do type them in, I completely have forgotten to check about the follow song option.
As a result of this just happening too often, I've stopped using the follow song option most of the time.
Awesome. Can't wait to test this out. I'll test this as soon as I can and let you know. :) Thanks for the efforts.
Confirmed to work like I want it.
One thing I noticed, but for me its not a big deal: If I play a song with follow song on, I then press the stop button to stop the playback, if I then click anywhere in the pattern, the follow song is still stopped even though I am now in edit mode. Although I'm perfectly fine with this behavior, it may be better if this settong only is applied when the song is playing. Its more logical that way.
Anyway, I'm okay if this gets closed.
Yes, that would be more reasonable and logical. r8294 fixes this.
