Comments/PostIt in a song

Post by Epigon1 » Fri Oct 18, 2019 9:19 am

Would be very useful to put postit on a song, or maybe an area with comments, for example CTRL+SHIFT+TAB or something like that, that open a notepad like view..
Where can a user store info, for example things that has to be finished, root key, etc

How about this free M4L device?

How about the built in?

2.1.1 Using the Info View and Index

Right click a track header, a clip, a device and "Add Info Text".

I use the info text quite a bit, but the location is not exactly ideal. It would be nice to have a tooltip option so you could see it more closely to the object it pertains to.

Hi there,

About the info notes. Maybe it's an idea if Ableton would use the same way of 'hovering' over a cell, just like in a spreadsheet.
Only the cell would be the trackname at the right of the ableton arrange.

So instead of showing the info at the bottom left of the page , it would just be visible in a popup window when hovered over the name of the track.

Just an idea of course.

Thnx,

That's what I was referring to with "tooltip". Balloon help is another name.
