Hi, this is a simple tool i started years ago to just count the number of lines selected in the pattern and display the result in the status bar. It was intended to be of use when playing in notes ‘rubato’ style, and helping to line stuff up. I think i intended to use the count to set the correct BPM eventually, but never got around to that part yet. I have cleaned up the code and commented it. There’s probably some redundancy in there, but it works quite well.
The next step for this tool is to add a menu entry and some options, like setting display time-out, an enable switch, and an offset timer to allow other status messages to display first, because as it is it interferes with other tools’ use of the status bar to show messages.
I might also add some kind of option to change the edit step based on the selected number of lines, as that could make it more useful perhaps.
