"Minor" Line Highlighting

To make sure, I’m talking about “highlight every xx lines” in Song Properties here.

Right now it can have as value LPB or a number. So if you enter 8, it highlights every 8 lines.

I propose optionally highlighting minor lines, so if you enter 8,2,5, every 8 lines get highlighted as major line, and the other two get highlighted “slightly less”, like this:

####  
----  
xxxx  
----  
----  
xxxx  
----  
----  
####  
----  
xxxx  
----  
----  
xxxx  
----  
----  

maybe there could be a little button to pop up a “visual editor” for this:

  
 +----------------------------+  
 | |  
 | [8] number of lines |  
 | |  
 | 0 ##(always selected) |  
 | 1 ------------------- |  
 | 2 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx |  
 | 3 ------------------- |  
 | 4 ------------------- |  
 | 5 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx |  
 | 6 ------------------- |  
 | 7 ------------------- |  
 | |   
 | [OK] [CANCEL] |   
 | |   
 +----------------------------+  
  
  

(that thing would have to be be resizable and have optional scrollbars I guess)

I would also really like to see an additional minor highlighting. It would be very useful, esp when working with large patterns at high LPB.

st3/it/st has it.

You can just change the number of lines highlighted in songs settings…

Yeah, but that’s not variable, and hence not really that useful less straightforward rhythms… it’s still just “x to the floor”.

That I’m suggesting an addition to that kinda gives away that I already know that, doesn’t it? ^_^
