New CTL OPTIONS 3 page:
First three options disable redrawing of background on control refresh (ie. when it gets redrawn). This has consequences - text that is not completely on top of opaque parts of the control image will be messed up (value mainly).
Click through option needs to be set on the meter controls so that they do not receive the mouse clicks - and any other overlaid control does.
Anyway - your call if you want to use the new features (purely to allow the sort of overlaid meter/control Timbralzoom requested). They might be useful for other things - don't know yet.
AND - RJ's request for separate colour/size for param name/value on a control is also added.
Please note - I had to change a bug which showed up and annoyed the hell out of me while adding this feature. The bug wasn't noticeable or a problem when size was controlled together - now they can be independent - the bug was annoying. In fixing this bug - it made ALL text for controls move in all saved projects/strips.
However - I've done my best to detect when this has happened (by checking file versions) - and think I've covered everything. I gathered users might complain if suddenly all their strips needed editing!!
So I've done my best to do this transparently. Once all projects are loaded and resaved - there will be no extra overhead checking for this problem (the corrections will be saved in the new data file).
Strip files will be corrected when required - but if you resave the strip files - they won't need correcting each time the strip is loaded. But this is nearly instant anyway.
So hopefully you won't notice any problems.
Also - LINK button - keeps the resizing/colour choosing of the text for controls as before (ie. linked).
Timbral - here's an example of the controls that will work with the new feature. Note - where the green is - there must be opaque colour behind the whole travel of the green strip at all times - as transparency here would leave artifacts when the control is redrawn. That's the main requirement.
I also split the image into L + R - but I guess you would have done that had it all worked correctly in your test.
