Interface design issues

Post by RonaldPR » Tue Apr 26, 2011 9:53 am

In Decibel tracks are shown as:
1 of 25
2 of 25
3 of 25 etc.

while in Play tracks are shown as:
1/25
2/25
3/25 etc.

"Track: 12 of 25" may be preferable in the Inspector window, but I find 12/25 easier to read in the column in the main window. The repetion of the word "of" in each line is distracting.

How do others feel about that?

I don't like either of them. A seperate optional column would satisfy me :)

Do you want separate columns for track number and total number of tracks, or do you want this column to be optional?
(You can easily remove unwanted columns (or add other columns) by right-clicking (or control-clicking) the column headers.)

yeah optional are they all, that's right. a separate total track column would be nice, though.
