Default MIDI Note Names affected by zooming, and no resize

Hi,

I wrote MIDI Note Names for a few Superior Drummer expansions and put them in the REAPER stash. The format specified in the manual was simple, but now I fear I'm doing things wrong.

1) I had to use quite a few spaces (tabs did not work) in order to line the names up in a tidy way. Then I found alignment changes depending on vertical zoom. Is there a trick to this?

2) Some names are too long and I am unable to resize the piano roll horizontally.



Am I doing things wrong?

Thanks for your help!

For text alignment in this way to work correctly a monospaced font has to be used. I do not know if the font for the note names can be changed, but if they can, try "Courier New".

In general, I think that in many places it would have been better if Reaper (by default) used a monospaced font. Aligning chords with lyrics fails in the same way, but I have never bothered to try to fix that.

Thanks! I'll look into changing the font!
