For me it looks like some action has to be applied to the synthesizer and the reminder pop-up is just a crutch that you don't forget to do it manually.
Yes, the pop up is reminder.  I don't connect my keyboards to my tablet and I am not going to add a another layer of complexity.
But you easily ask for another layer of complexity in MSP software by requesting a feature that you might be the only person who needs such a pop-up?
This is not too complex for the user.  Ignore it if you don't need it.  (There are plenty off tools (maybe 90%) I don't use.)

I could see this being helpful for any person who uses some set up for a song that would need to be undone going forward.

Of course, keyboard players would benefit most (reminder to undue transpose is another use)

Also, guitarists who want to remind themselves to "undo" drop D (or other) tuning.

I wouldn't be surprised to find other uses are found for this if it is available.  (I suggested an option that pedal pushes do not switch to the next song in a set list.  I have seen that that is option is useful to others).

But, I am not pushing further.  Mike has plenty to work on, this may not be useful to everyone (and Mike is very responsive and willing to engage).

This is a little more tedious to handle in the Windows 10 version as you can only have one dialog up at a time, so they would need to be queued up so that one would open after the other is closed (which breaks the current flow of the code, so I'd have to come up with some design changes to handle that).

I would think it could be set up so you can't close/leave the song until you closed the pop up window (by tapping again).  So (unless I am missing something), this should not interfere with another pop up that would only open when you opened another song.

But, it's cool Mike, looks like I am the only one looking for this.  Thanks for looking into it.

Whilst the request sounds simple to you, you don't know how the code is organised. There may not be a point in the code that says "I am leaving a song". As Mike hinted, sometimes it is a page turn. So you can't say what would interfere with what or how easy any of this would be. Only Mike can.

I get the feeling from his replies that it is sufficiently difficult that he would want it to benefit a number of people to make the work worthwhile.

Maybe you could add an annotation at the bottom of the song that says "Don't forget to reset the synth" in nice big letters. Smile

Agreed. Mike is the best.  Yep, that is a good suggestion (I have done this and will continue). Smile
