General Discussion / Deciding About BAK files
Last post by SEBC -
I've recently started having that message pop up when saving that the program is unable to save a BAK file, and do I want to save anyway (which I do). It's possible that I have changed something I shouldn't during a computer housecleaning episode.

This started me thinking whether or not I should fix that issue, or if I actually need the BAK files at all. I've rarely if ever used them, and storage space is becoming an issue on my hard drive, plus I back up my computer onto an external drive regularly.

I did read through the postings on BAK files, and see that some don't use them.

I'm asking for some opinions here (and help for figuring out the unable to save to BAK issue or how to stop the message from appearing).

Edit to add:  my recent question to Mike here ( https://forum.noteworthycomposer.com/?topic=9201.0) about having different versions of an object plug-in is linked to the fact that the multiples are BAK files, and I think I would like to delete them in that case. Is this a good or bad idea?)

Many thanks

Thanks for all the work that you (and others) have done to provide additional options and features for NWC.

Object Plugins / Re: Tempo.ms (version 2.0)

Tempo.ms and TempoEquation.ms are separate objects with different use cases. In short, TempoEquation.ms displays two single note durations on each side of an = sign, which is centered over a barline, and is intended to show a change in the tempo factor. Tempo.ms displays tempo values and can optionally show various double note swing rhythms. I'd suggest playing with each of them to get the feel for how they work.

Hi Mike

I was looking at my computer file for user plug ins and objects, and I noticed that I had two versions of a few things, with different names.

For example, Trill.ms.nwcuser and Trill.ms.nwcuser.lua

Can I safely delete the .lua versions (which have an older date on them)?

Thanks
It depends on whether you have Windows configured to hide the extensions of files.  When you are looking at the files in Windows explorer, what does the "Type" column show for each of the two files, i.e. Trill.ms.nwcuser and Trill.ms.nwcuser.lua ? You could also highlight each of the files, right click and choose Properties, and then go to the Details tab, and see what it displays for Name.

Mike, is this the same as TempoEquation.ms, or different, and if so, do I need both?

Thanks

Object Plugins / Re: RepeatMark.test (0.5)

I'm getting caught up on this plug-in and am happy with the results. I have a question: is there a quick way to undo the action once you have already run it? This is in case you decided to change your score.

After installing it, I am not hearing any difference between the truncated score and when I removed the markings. I'm not sure why that would be, probably user error on my part.
38
As you can see, I'm getting caught up on some object plug-in reading. I wondered how this truncate object has been working out for you? Any further development ideas? I can see its usefulness in preparing rehearsal tracks or audio demos of compositions.

I'd like to talk to you more about the potential for this tool in my own composition work. Do you have time for that?
