Bitmap List (Panel Edit)
The Bitmap list was the original method of accessing bitmap files for display and use in Editors. Most controls are now capable of storing the names of the bitmaps they require, however, this list is still used for the following specific purposes:
To make bitmaps available to the editor:
Bitmap List Dialog
The Bitmap List dialog is used to create a list of bitmaps that can be used by the controls to display parameter states. The mail list area displays the current list of available bitmaps. All bitmaps added to the list MUST be located in the same folder as the editor file itself.
Browse - displays a file selector to select an additional bitmap to add to the bottom of the list
Delete - deletes the selected bitmap from the list
Shift Up - shifts the selected bitmap up in the list
Shift Down - shifts the selected bitmap down in the list
Duplicate - duplicates the bitmap name and adds it to the list
Move To - before clicking on Move To, enter the position in the list where the bitmap is to be moved in the text box below the button then press the button to move the reference
Add - adds the file name entered in the text area to the button's left to the list
Historical Support for Bitmaps
The Windows version of Midi Quest continues to support the .png and .bmp graphic file formats. However, for cross compatibility with Macintosh systems it is strongly recommended that only .png files are used as .bmp is not supported.
Any time a .bmp file is specified, if Midi Quest fails to find the .bmp file, it will attempt to load a file of the same name with the .png extension. This makes it very easy to convert to using .png instead of .bmp. Just convert your .bmp files to .png and you're done.
note: key equivalents will only work when the editor view has focus. If the panel editor has been used then the focus has been shifted and key equivalents will not work. Click the mouse in the editor view to reset the focus and enable key equivalents.
