Default Re: BUG: Big Counter disappearing

ah yes I saw that bug that you logged and up-voted it last week. I logged my version of it about two weeks ago: http://protools.ideascale.com/a/dtd/...ng/159177-3779

Let's hope they fix it.

I am wondering if anyone could remember whether a single idea published on the idea scale site has been adopted to a real version of Pro Tools?

Well, there are 140 marked as Completed in the Ideas section.

Thanks Bruce, I wasn't aware there is "completed" pop up option in there.

An easy workaround would be to hit cmd+(num block) 3 twice.

First of all, I'd have to do that hundreds of times during a session — and I'm not the one looking at the screen, so I would have to remember to do that every time. It makes me look incompetent when the counter keeps disappearing from the screen.

Secondly, even if I do your workaround, the position of the counter shifts. I want only the Bars and Beats to show... not the Ticks. When I do your workaround the counter moves to the left, showing Bars, Beats, and Ticks.

I have programmed a workaround with QuicKeys that calls up a window configuration automatically, however that too has it's downside. It will close any plugin or send windows that I'm showing temporarily.

Bottom line, for me it's a bad bug... bad enough to keep me working in 10.3.10 during tracking sessions.

I'm aware that this is nothing but a workaround, and those are hardly ever ideal. But since there's no other way at this moment, I'm just trying to find a way that might be suitable to you.
Btw. the counter window doesn't shift over here. It stays where I left it.

The only other option would be running the video windowed using a black wallpaper. Then no matter what you do the counter stays visible.
Not perfect either, but I'm afraid those are your only options at that point.

Not quite sure what you mean by this. Usually I do have black wallpaper on the second monitor that displays the video. However, when the movie window is open and fullscreen, it makes no difference what the wallpaper is as the background is obscured by the movie window. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your input and workaround suggestion

That's opposed to the suggested "windowed". :)
Meaning you don't run the video fullscreen but in a scaled down window that leaves room for the counter.

Ah yes, now I understand your meaning. One of my friends has started working this way because of the same bug, but he kind of hates it. He's got a 60" monitor, but with the movie window shrunk down he might as well have a 48" monitor.
