Clipboard fixes for 2.0
I've gotten to the part of the edit where it's nearly impossible to proceed
with the new Clipboard. The most central problem is when I try and paste a
clip from the edit into a particular bin, it won't let me. It pastes
SOMEWHERE, but not necessarily in the bin I need it to be in. Then I have
to do a search for it, and the serach result still doesnt tell me where
that byte is (which group it mysteriously saved to), so i have to drag it
into the edit and THEN try pasting it into the right group. This is making
it impossible to proceed with this show because I can't organize my
material. I understand that new versions are inevitably glitchy at
first...but the sheer number of problems here is pretty intense...and some
are nearly impossible to work around. So when I ask if you plan to fix
these things and get a one sentence answer...essentially, 'we'll look into
it.' I don't really know how to interpret that. Does that mean you'll be
fixing these things in a week? A year? Is there a schedule for these fixes,
I've really appreciated Hindenburg. It's been my daily companion for the
better part of a decade. I'm hoping these problems can get solved and if
they are, I'd love to have some idea when that will be. Here are the issues
I've found in the last couple days...(a few additional to the last list):
When you try and paste a section into a NEW clipboard bin from the edit
session, it instead pastes it into the group you were working in before and
you have to go looking for it. Actually I’m not even certain WHERE it
pastes them. I know that if you do a global search for the file it comes
up, but doesn’t tell you what group it’s in, so you have to drag the clip
on to the edit board and then try and copy it into the right group again,
which doesn't always work.
Also, it’s unclear how to get BACK to the general clipboard menu from the
search. You have to actually delete the search words to get back to the
main clipboard frame but that’s not intuitive.
Then if you maximize the clipboard, there’s no button to minimize it again
without closing out of the clipboard entirely.
When you try to rename a file in a clipboard group, you double click on
name, the whole name is highlighted, but then it doesn’t let you
‘command-arrow’ to auto get to end or beginning of name. you have to click
with cursor. That wasn’t true of old version. And if you mistakenly delete,
you can’t control z and get the name back.
There is no way to jump around in the byte without dragging into the edit.
Have to listen from beginning, and all through.
If you delete a file in a clipboard, cannot Control Z and get it back
There’s no way to move a clip from one bin to another without dragging. If
I have 50 clips in a bin, that means dragging it down and down and down til
I can pull it into another. Should be a way to cut and copy
No way to select multiple clips and move together to new group.
The promotional video shows a user dragging a segment from the edit into
clipboard. Not working.
I don't know how hard this is to design, but it would be nice if I could
pull clipboard groups out to different parts of screen so I could see items
in each at the same time, instead of stacked. So if I’m working with
‘Interviews’ and ‘Doc tape’, and each bin has MANY bytes, I don’t have to
endlessly scroll. Just more options with how Clipboard groups live on the
If previewing clip, can’t leave program or clip stops playing. I often take
notes as I’m listening to a clip but now I have to drag into work edit to
listen and take notes. This was not true in other version.
