Hi guys. The first few times I saved a chord set I had assumed you changed something in how Scaler 2 handles user chord sets, but looking at the manual the saved chord set is not behaving as shown in the manual.
Additionally, saving a set creates 2 files, and appends a string of text that was not part of the name I typed. One file always contains the text pattern, the other file always contains session + the date.
I’m pretty sure I understand what each file is, the problem is that it doesn’t show up as a single file in the browser. And, after renaming some sets last night chord set files that had previously shown up stopped showing up.
The last behavior appears to be some kind of bug. I unfortunately I can’t figure out the steps to reproduce it consistently, all I know is one of my folders now shows less sets than I have in there, and they were displaying fine until I had moved one of them into a sub-folder, renamed it, and refreshed the list. Suddenly that folder only showed 3 saved sets when It should have display 7 or 8. (In other words the menu had shows 6 or 7 files that had been renamed without issue. After renaming the file I did last night suddenly only 3 would appear.)
Trying to move things around and rename things won’t solve the issue. Even dragging the xml into Scaler and saving again does not fully fix the issue. Then it would display 4 only, the remaining sets refusing to display. I’ve attached screenshots that show what I’m referring to, an explanation of the screen shots below.
- You can see I save a set called “Chords Test”.
- Based on the behavior of Scaler 1, and according to the Scaler 2 manual: The user menu should show 1 chord set called Chords Test.
- Instead, as you can see the user menu shows 2 files, one with session 1 appended, another with sessions-2020-06-17 appended.
Some of this appears to be unexpected behavior. That said, this is all quite a bit confusing compared to Scaler 1…
All of these should be displaying, most were until renaming one yesterday.
Now as you can see only 3 display after renaming.
