So a stand alone tutorial in PDF format is acceptable? Or is putting it in the wiki better?

I want to give something back to MusE. :)
Can't you edit the wiki directly? According to our repo settings (and the github docu), every user with a github account should be able to edit the wiki.
If it does not work, you can send me your document in the markdown format, I will include it in the wiki (a good external editor for the markdown language is e.g. VSCode, just in case you need one).

Your theme (from the above screenshot) also looks very nice, if it's complete for all views and you would be interested in contributing it to MusE, for me personally it would be a nice addition. Your colour combinations are very tasteful.

OK, I will check this out!

Thanks! I lost it when I compiled the (your! :) ) new version of Muse to try out the select-copy, but I will re-create it.

And many thanks for the new feature!

I lost it
Hm, sorry about that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I've lost track a bit of the stylesheet support - do we not have a user stylsheet folder?

If someone gets some time in the future we should add a user stylesheet folder
stored in ~./config so that it is not overwritten by new builds.
Similar to our instruments, we have built-in and we have a user folder.
When you use our Instrument Editor to edit a built-in instrument, or make a home-made instrument file,
that is where the edited version goes - to the user folder.
When MusE starts, it first looks in the user instrument folder for instruments.
However, we have no 'styleheet editor', so users will simply place their home-made stylesheets into the user folder.

How did you lose it? This should not happen. If I see it right, we are talking about internal colour settings (not stylesheets). The colours are saved in your user-specific MusE-seq.cfg in the home folder.
I did a lot in the area of stylesheets and colours for 3.1. The handling of stylesheets should be quite flexible and bullet-proof now, but the handling of the internal colours is still suboptimal. They should be consequently handled as a part of the current theme and not as central settings in MusE-seq.cfg. At least now when you switch the theme, the current colours are not lost any more, they are saved in the theme-specific .cfc file in the home theme folder and reloaded when switching back to this theme.

I think I will have to document all that (plus the stylesheets) in the wiki, as it is not so obvious to the user.

[Edit] There is now a wiki page, I hope it makes it a little clearer:

It could simply be that he wiped his config folder, in all the trials and testing.

No, I didn't (although I could have :) )...

But I lost some of the theme: When going with dark colors, it is hard to see whether a button on the Transport is pressed or not (ie the loop button). Somewhere, I don't remember where sorry, I changed something so a pressed button (loop) would turn green. Loved it! Now, then I change settings in the Dark theme.qss I can't get it to work again... I should have documented my steps.

This is what I see when doing "sudo make install":

Code: Select all

-- Installing: /usr/local/share/muse-3.1/themes/Dark Theme.cfg
-- Installing: /usr/local/share/muse-3.1/themes/Dark Theme.qss
This is overwriting my changes, which makes sense, but where should I put my own color schemes (clones of Dark Theme)?

Oh, your new wiki entry answered that: https://github.com/muse-sequencer/muse/ ... nd-colours. Somewhere else! :)
