Hi Frits, would you be able to prioritize the multiple selection code for the next version of Podium? I am currently building a lot of device definitions that I will gladly share with the community, including definitions for synths by LinPlug, Arturia, Steinberg, PSP, Kjaerhus, TC, Native Instruments, and others…it’s definitely a lot of work but since I need them, I’m doing them.
Some plugins import into Podium with multiple thousands of parameters. I try to make it easier to manage by putting them in folders. This is where selecting multiple items in a list would come in handy, such as click…shift-click (to select a range), AND ctrl-click…ctrl-shift-click (to select another range without unselecting the first).
Request noted. Multiple selection in lists using the standard windows approach with shift and control key modifiers are already implemented. What I believe you refer to is that it is not possible to drag a selection in the object list window. It’s on the plan. Until then you can get around by using a couple of other techniques:
You can use the cut command to cut a selection of objects and then paste them in the destination folder. Note that when you do this you remove the cut objects from the project, and thus if there are any references to the objects on e.g. tracks in arrangements, these references will be cleared.
Secondly you can use the browser. This is what I always use for organizing stuff. Here you can drag objects around to reorder them. Multiple selections can be dropped into folders using the control key. If you want to move an object to a parent folder, you drop it on one of the top tabs (only single object currently).
Yep that’s what I’ve been doing up till now. What I’m most concerned with is the Ctrl+Shift+Click funtionality, which is not implemented.
Clicking on one thing, then shift-clicking on another object 10 units away will select everything between the two objects. Then when you control click later on, it adds that selection to the existing selection. THEN if you control+shift+click a few objects away from that, you will get ANOTHER range, added to the first range you selected previously.
That’s the kind of multiple selection functionality I was looking for. That is Windows standard, but I’ve noticed a lot of people never knew it existed.
And what the HELL is wrong with LinPlug’s RM IV drum machine? When I brought it into Podium it exposed 4300 VST parameters. That’s insane. I give up trying to organize them heheheh.
