Here is an updated POST2 tutorial. I took everyone's comments into account. Some I didn't agree with.

I specifically put some information in multiple locations as we know that many folks will jump and skip around and I would rather have the info in all appropriate locations.

Please comment...

Re: 10.6 Tutorial: POST2 - Record Cue

I hadn’t read the latest version until this afternoon – lots of nice stuff added.

Notes:

Page 40 – should you mention relative ind times – 1 [thru] 5 [@] [+] 1 [Enter] – Actually I just tested and that fails, kinda. It works great if there is a previous recorded ind time but not if the value was in there live.

Page 44 – not so much the tutorial but a “I understand why but…” If I want to remove auto-follows for a range of cues from the command line – [Cue] 1 [thru] 10 [S2-Follow] [Enter] toggles the presence of a follow – meaning is Cue 5 lacks an autofollow… Not exactly what I want but I sure understand why.

Page 46 – why does [Cue] 2 [S3-Link] [Enter] only work if there is already a link? I realize it is silly if there isn’t one but see above comment.

Page 48 – Fall out of loop – seems badly named – I would have expected it to continue out of the bottom of the loop not simple stop in the current cue.

Page 51 – We will need to agree to disagree on Scroll lock versus unlock. I still say the orange “lit” state is locked and locked means doesn’t scroll automatically.

Page 60/61 – We dodge the issue of updating subs not at full and blind update of active subs. Probably best for now.

Page 65 – Discuss the difference between [Look] 1 [@] 50 [Enter] and [Goto] [Look] 1 [@] 50 [Enter] ?

Page 66 – I see you are still dreaming of the world where there is a command line version of Copy/Move?

Will More detail on the Look display be coming in another tutorial? The columns available, type of bump buttons…

BH: Would consider that advanced stuff anyway.

Page 44 – not so much the tutorial but a “I understand why but…” If I want to remove auto-follows for a range of cues from the command line – [Cue] 1 [thru] 10 [S2-Follow] [Enter] toggles the presence of a follow – meaning is Cue 5 lacks an autofollow… Not exactly what I want but I sure understand why.

BH: Don't feel this is an issue in the basic recording tutorial.

Page 46 – why does [Cue] 2 [S3-Link] [Enter] only work if there is already a link? I realize it is silly if there isn’t one but see above comment.

BH: Don't know why you would want it to add a link from the current cue to the next cue.

Page 48 – Fall out of loop – seems badly named – I would have expected it to continue out of the bottom of the loop not simple stop in the current cue.

BH: I feel it just needs explaining. I didn't get it until I played and found that it was doing exactly what it says.

Page 51 – We will need to agree to disagree on Scroll lock versus unlock. I still say the orange “lit” state is locked and locked means doesn’t scroll automatically.

BH: Everyone knows how I feel here.

Page 60/61 – We dodge the issue of updating subs not at full and blind update of active subs. Probably best for now.

BH: Agreed. Not basic.

Page 65 – Discuss the difference between [Look] 1 [@] 50 [Enter] and [Goto] [Look] 1 [@] 50 [Enter] ?

BH: In all my years of programming, I have never done this so I don't consider it basic.

Page 66 – I see you are still dreaming of the world where there is a command line version of Copy/Move?

BH: A girl can dream can't she?

Will More detail on the Look display be coming in another tutorial? The columns available, type of bump buttons…

BH: Yes.

I'm coming close to stopping work on this and releasing it to the betas for 10.6.3 and begin work on the next one...effects.

I'm calling this one done. I'll respin it for a file name change and send it on to Gary to include in future betas and releases.

Here it is for anyone that is interested in translating it.

Some editing needed to be done after some notes from RB. See next post.

Thanks

I know the last pass was supposed to be the last pass but here is another version.

I want to get this nailed down quickly so let me know if you have any notes asap.

Thanks

'nother one...

Yep, wonderfull idea.
If we don´t nail this document, then all the "train spotters" here find a lot of other things ... ;-)

Thanks for that Tom.

One slight change on the LP Playback Wing.

Better one...

Luckily I have Phil Foleen that performed the proof reading duties. I had forgotten how bad my grammer is.

My 1970's Texas public eduation was showing. I've zipped up now.

Bobby...thanks again for the great tutorials...they're really helpful, and I point new users to 'em (and to this board).

Is there a way to add new tutorials to the console in the "tutorials" folder when on a site visit? I just tried to do so after updating a console to 10.6.2, and found that I didn't have permissions to write to that folder. I ended up putting the new one in the public folder, but it would be nice to have 'em all together...

And thanks for adding the "tutorials" pick to the help menu. I expect that new tutorials will be added to updates, when they are released, but, in this case, the s/w update slightly preceded the availability of the finished tutorial, and thus #2 wasn't included with the new s/w.

Thanks again...

DA

That's something that I'll have to discuss w/ Gary. I imagine that it needs to stay locked down for security purposes.

It will certainly be out in the next release.
