Following on from this recent posting viewtopic.php?f=46&t=94527&start=10
I would like to suggest that we have two custom resets introduced into Audacity:1) Toolbars
Currently in the View >Toolbars
menu the only reset available is Reset Toolbars
which only offers the ability to reset to default.
Now given that the user may have carefully customized their Toolbar layout and which Toolbars they choose to have displayed (as I do) it would be useful to add two further commands to the View >Toolbars
menu for Save Toolbar Layout
and Restore Toolbar Layout
a) These commands could be direct additional entries in the View >Toolbars
b) We could add a command in b]View >Toolbars[/b] menu for Reset Toobars with the folling entries:
* Reset to default
* Save Toolbar Layout
* Restore Toolbar Layout
My prefence currently is for a)
This would also Save/Restore the user's preferred Time display format in the Selection Toolbar.2) Preferences
I would also suggest that a simple way to save and restore a user's carefully set Preferences would be a good addition to the Audacity toolset.
We could either introduce commands for this or add buttons to each of the Preferences panes for Save Preferences
and Restore Preferences
If either, or both, of these ideas gains traction here I will write up a proposal for this.
And yes, I do realize that this is achievable by carefully staring and restoring mandraullically your audacity.cfg file (that's the way I do it all the time right now)
but with thse suggestions I'm looking for a way for non-technical users to be able to do it from the GUI.
