Scrollbar redesign! more intuitive &Ableton style,like this~

Post by rillzheng » Sun Feb 25, 2018 2:42 pm

Maybe we can redesign the track scrollbar(perhaps include the horizontal scrollbar in the session view) like the overview bar.Actually, I have a prototype design for the scrollbar like the pic below. Click to navigate(it's easier to find your percussion/string...group), move the edge to zoom in and out, double-click zoom out the whole project, exactly same functionality to the overview bar. I thought it's more intuitive and fit the same aesthetic design concept like the overview bar and waveform/midinote thumbnail.

You should post it in Centercode's Suggestions, if you have a beta account.

This idea is a good idea.
It not only provides scroll context, but would also allow users to click on a coloured scroll zone and jump to the relevant track.

Simple. Good.
Make it so!

Yeah... I am a legitimate Ableton Push 2 user, but I'm not a beta tester yet.

It seems the new version Adobe Audition got this idea, and it's pretty decent. It should be a feature for Ableton Live 10.1 or 10.2
