2 bugs - text annotations & export
#11
Hi Mike,
Ask away, any questions happily answered :-)

Also, just checked - exported songs are, on the average, not large enough (less than 4MB) to initiate a progress bar, as you explained. I'll test exporting a file larger than 4MB and let you know if that shows upload progress. Thanks!

I'll see if I can reproduce any of issues you have described with text annotations.  I may need to ask you some more questions if I struggle to reproduce the issues.

As for the problem with exporting, I currently try to send data in as few chunks as possible, as this is much more efficient than sending smaller chunks.  I do try to ensure that for files over 4 MB in size, that I use a chunk size that will show some amount of progress. For example, for a 128 MB file, I use ~32 MB chunks, so you should see the upload progress increase by around 25% each time a chunk is successfully sent.  If you are sending files smaller than 4MB, I send those in one chunk, so you won't see any progress. It will go from 0 to 100%.  What size file are you uploading?

Thanks,
Mike

I have a fix in place for the issue with < and > turning pages. This is because those are mapped to pedal actions by default (left arrow/right arrow, which is something most pedals send) and I didn't have code in place to ignore those keys when typing in text for a text annotation. Once the next update is released, you won't encounter this anymore. If you need a workaround for now, remove those key mappings in the pedal action settings.

I can't seem to reproduce any issues with changing text annotation properties and not seeing them reflected immediately. Are you changing the font? I've only been testing with the system default font. Some fonts like monospace don't support bold and italic, so if you toggle those on, nothing will happen. I should probably make the code smarter so that the buttons are disabled for fonts that don't support bold and/or italic.

Thanks,
Mike

UPDATE:
I did find another issue that could cause weird issues with whether fonts are bold or italic when selecting text annotations. If there are other properties you aren't seeing updated, that would remain a different issue still.

Yep, definitely using different fonts (san serif, condensed light, medium, etc.). I'll choose bold, but the text doesn't appear be bold while typing. After saving, sometimes it then appears as bold, but sometimes not.
Same with italic. However, when I go back after saving and reselect the text I wanted to be bold and select bold again, it will then sometimes become bold, although not always. It's really hit and miss. And I haven't even been drinking ;-)

In that case, I believe the issues should be fixed in the next update then.

Turns out there was a bug in my code and bold/italic should work with all fonts after the next update.
