In response to the feature request here: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/regular-interval-labels-improvements/18970/2
I’ve added a couple of new features to the “Regular Interval Labels” plug-in.
Label numbers may be before or after the label text.
1_label, 2_label, 3_label …
track_1, track_2, track_3…
User defined start number.
Some users may prefer to start numbering at “1” rather than at “0”.
Also, if splitting two recordings, one from the “A” side of an album and one from the “B” side, it may be useful to start numbering for the B-side so that the numbers follow on from the A-side.
Numbers with preceding zeros
If there are more than 9 songs exported with “Export Multiple” (based on labels), the exported tracks would not previously have been in alphanumeric order.
For example with 12 tracks the alphanumeric order would be:
0, 1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
By setting the minimum number of digits to 2, single digit numbers will be give a preceding zero, so the numeric order will now be:
00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12
The user may select:
No numbers - label text only
Minimum 1 digit - same as original version.
Minimum 2 digits - one preceding zero for single digits.
Minimum 3 digits - two preceding zeros for single digits.
I’ve also partially refactored the code to make it more readable and easier to work on. Most of the (profuse) commenting has been left in place.
I have temporarily renamed this plug-in “Regular Interval Labels 2…” so that it can be installed alongside the original “Regular Interval Labels…”
Please test and reply with comments in this thread.
