Summary0004621: Suggestion to change the look of marker 'flags' in the editor rulers.
DescriptionSuggestion to change the look of marker 'flags' in the editor rulers.

See attached mock up.

Remove the 'shape' from the left hand end of all markers, the very left hand edge becomes the indication of position in time. See start and end marks in the mockup as an example of the 'shape'.

Instead all markers will be a rectangular in shape, using the same fill colour that they currently have, but with a black border. Meter and Tempo are examples in the mock up.

When the option to view marker lines is enabled, the lines will only descend from the marker downwards, not upwards as well. The line should also be black. Mark 1 is an example.

When a marker becomes selected its border changes colour to blue and a line is drawn from the time rulers down to the bottom of the editor. Mark 2 shows this in the mock up.

I think this will look cleaner and remove some of the unnecessary colour in the editor.

did this work get done via a different route? the markers look somewhat similar to the suggest these days.

Several things were tried at the time, which didn't all work. I forget the details. The markers as they are now don't contain any of the suggestions. The patch implements some of it, but it was never applied.
