Default Lots of wavs on track - need clear names

I've played around with the clip name options (Appearance > media) but the size of the text is too small and obscure.

I've got dozens of spoken word clips on a track and need to see their names clearly to help arrange the order. They are all splits from one long take, so they all share the same name! I go through and add a new name in the 'notes' field but that isn't much practical use. Ideally the notes field would be the displayed name, and the name could be made big.

Is there a way to achieve this?

Closest I get is the info in this thread which seems to indicate there are no decent options at all:

There is various tool to batch rename items active take, like the SWS Label Processor. Some scriptd are more advanced but it should already helps.


Then you gan have a list of items with the project bay. This will helo you see the order of you item with a large name column.


Note that I made a script shared in reapack to switch items notes and items names if needed.


Also one thing you can consider is creating empty items with notes from selected items, and set the text to fit. Again I made a script for the first action, heda made the other.

Thanks Xraym, I've looked many times through your scripts - amazing stuff!

But in this situation, nothing in the big Reaper universe suits what I need: to manually rename clips on a track and show the name in reasonably big letters.

Seems a fairly obvious sort of thing to need imo but alas nothing out there to achieve it.

Thanks :P


This is the script I'm taking above


X-Raym_Create text items on first selected track from selected items notes.lua
Script: X-Raym_Create text items on first selected track from selected takes name.lua


Then use : Script: HeDa_Toggle Note Stretch to Fit.eel



track 1 is the text items, and track 2 the related MIDI items.


If this doesn't solve the issue, send a mockup so we can evaluate.

This might help !
