Default Rename "My folders" to "Folders", are we in kindergarten?



Are we still in kindergarten? When are our folders ever not ours? So why must REAPER remind us that our folders are indeed ours? We don't need the word "My", it is contrived, it is annoying, it feels like Microsoft-idiocy.

Remove "My" less we add "My" to everything else in REAPER. My Plugins, My FX Chains, My Toolbars, My Macros...

"Open My FX Window..."
"Close My Projects..."

Sometimes...when i look around in my little flat...it looks sooo empty. I don't own that much. I feel sad. Guess what i do?
I open the FX Window and proudly see "My Folders". I'm happy again. That makes my day.

Edit: You could edit the Reaper.exe with a hex editor (e.g. Notepad++ with HEX extension). Search for "My Folders" and replace it by "Folders ".

My wife would say "build a bridge and get over it". It's no big deal. Go make some music.

yes.. go and make some music

the only problem I have with this fx browser window... is ...
- move the fx browser window to a secondary monitor..
- Right click on "My folders" to add a new folder
- funny thing happens

but I can do it from the main monitor screen... so.. no problem...

That would've been a valid argument had I not posted it in "nitpicks", people!!!

Also, I do make music. I only post junk like this on my off days.

Edit: I wonder if a langpack can fix this.

You shoulda just renamed it ReaFolder.

Which begs the question, is all of that Rea-Everything stuff REE-Uh or just REE?

Is it REE-Comp or RE-Uh-Comp?

And why does all that stuff start with "Rea" anyway?

Things that make you go "Hmmm...."

I think the "My" is there so as to emphasize that they are user created, and not created by the software.

I don't see the big deal.

I think i even feel like being bothered about it, is more kindergarten like than having it that way.

Argitoth,

The point of "MY" is to ensure that you recognize the content there as customized by YOU so that you do not think or treat it as a stock item, like the other folders.

Your argument, to me, is a rather juvenile reaction. Nap time! :P

download txt: http://www.reaper.fm/langpack/index....gpack_download there's a link "template language pack" right-click, save-as

;24F1060B944AB6E0=My Folders

change it to

24F1060B944AB6E0=Folders

(removing the ; makes it active)

put the text into: C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Roaming\REAPER\LangPack

go into reaper preferences, go to "General" (very top) and change Language: (also very top) to your new langpack txt file.

Default The tyranny of "MY"

The tyranny of "MY"

This is a true societal brain deformity.

It is a constituent of Orwellian New Speak.

Sadly, this stupidity will last decades, as it continues to spread. (MyLowes,…)

A few examples of the how the birth defect results in a complete lack of thinking:::

My Computer
My Documents
My Data Sources
My Drawings
My eBooks
My Faxes
My House
My iBases
My iCrap
My Images
My iMail
My iMusic
My iPictures
My iScans
My iSongs
My Keyboard
My Mail
My Monitor
My Mouse
My Music
My Network
My Notebooks
My Pictures
My Plans
My Projects
My Room
My Scans
My Sessions
My Songs
My Stuff
My Templates

This is just plain dumb.
Unfortunately, idiots with authority to prefix "MY" will eventually remove the space and the dictionary will have more "MY" words than "RE" words.

Prolly the same brain defect.

I actually name all of my menusets and all that as "My" whatever, because then I know it is my default custom set.

I guess I must be still in kindergarten at heart.

So, you think US Army, Air Force, FBI, NASA, do you think ANY of those will have "my" in any part of their computer software? No, because they require a professional environment. I don't care if I'm not dealing with life or death situations, I desire the same level of professionality in my tools. REAPER is a tool, by the way, not a game, not an app, not an educational software for kindergarteners.

So if you don't like how I think, guess what? No one asked you. Go troll somewhere else.

I think you should get over being embarrassed that simplicity works. It's what makes windows interfaces so successful, although I'm sure some hardcore command line guys were poopooing that idea of using picture icons to make computer work easier.

Okay, now lock the thread. :P

Arg. Trolling, in my book, is when you start a thread with this kind of caustic attitude:

"Rename "My folders" to "Folders", are we in kindergarten?"

But you, like many self-absorbed sociopaths I have met, do not listen to your own thoughts. You just unload them because it makes you feel good, or at least less miserable.

Also, YOU asked me, as a member of the forum, by putting a "?" at the end of your topic header.

Why don't you go somewhere else and troll your bad vibes. Justin and the guys work their asses off to make this a superior product and then they have to deal with whiney customers like you whimpering about not being able to assert your adult manhood by using "Mr. Folder" instead of "My."

So long, A-H.

I'm not sure their software doesn't. And since they most likely use windows, I'm pretty sure it does.
