User Interface and manual Issues
Firstly, as a new owner of the software, I like it and think the price is reasonable. However, a few questions about the UI, and issues:
1. How does one simply 'pause' a song from the UI? I see that there is a keyboard command for it (CTRL - p) but it is not part of the button assignments for contolling play. I 'pause' songs a lot more than I want to 'stop' them. Having the 'PLAY' button switch to a 'PAUSE' button when a song is playing would be a reasonable saving of space on the control screen-- effectively the 'PLAY' button should really be a 'PLAY/PAUSE' button. IMO.
2. I have a 1GHz Apia motherboard. The applications responds reasonably enough, but it takes a long time (10-20 seconds) for the graphic symbols (e.g. the play buttons or the volume elements) to draw when these window shade screens are called up the first time through after launching the application. I have tried different update rates (15fps through to 100 fps) with no affect.
3. The current posted manual is a bit out of date. Manuals always lag the application and never seem to be important enough to spend time on, but I would encourage the developers to spend some cycles on the manual, particularly early on as it will answer a lot of questions for the use base. An online 'living' manual would be better than a published PDF. Perhaps a WIKI manual, where you would let us users help document the application is a good idea.
I have not tried out the navigation section yet as I am still waiting for the DVD.
