[GUI] Drum Player - placing the pageswitching-buttons on top

Post by JLM » Fri Aug 09, 2013 9:42 am

At first siight, its not very obvious how to view the "beats over 16". In think this is due to the fact that the beats are layed out horizontally (and also the numbering and active-beat-display), but the "page-switching-buttons" are left to that - and most important - vertically aligned.

I think this could be much better when placed horizontally. I made a mockup for further discussion:

Changed the position of the page-switching buttons to the top (now horizontally)

Any comments on that?

I'm liking this actually. It is the small things that can make a big difference. I think it neat, out of the way and more logically laid out this way and I would certainly welcome this change if the developers were to agree to it. Should be a very simple change I would think, question is, do they feel the time and effort is worth it? I would like to hope so.

Although I kind of agree, once you find it it's not a problem where it is to me. But, it does make more sense on top.
