Hi again

It seems to me that the more popular wavesurfer becomes, the more trouble its developers are getting into, trying to satisfy us. With that preface, I would like to add some wishes to the wish list.

    For productivity reasons, the right button menu could be more specialized and addapted to repetitive tasks. The way it is now, it is useful when you set up the panes (once or at most a few times) but it is rearly useful if you are doing repetitive work, like phoneme-sylabe-word allignment, parameter measurement, sound editing etc, after having set up the work environment. Therefor, a more specialized, pane sensitive right button menu, like the one for labeling, ideally custom configurable, would be the best way to go. The current right button configuration menu, which is minimally pane sensitive, could be a Shift-right button menu (or control or alt).

    There could be 4 'button menu' customizing dialogs (i.e. for right, shift-right, control-right and alt-right combinations), allowing the user to configure by himself what will go on these menus. Oh yes, this could be endless, there is also a middle button asking for a similar treatment icon_smile.gif

    A crop function?

    That piecewise f0 line drawing feature for modelling prosody?

I was carried away.

Thanks a million for having wavesurfer, and hoping for the best.

Thanks for the popup-meu suggestion. You definitely have a point (or a few) We'll have a good think about this. Possibly the current main-popup menu could become a sub-menu for the pane-specific pop-ups thus avoidng any modifier keys at all. (They are tricky anyway and the Mac only has one button which steals one possible modifier)

Crop would be very easy.

Next version of WaveSurfer is able to plot data with the fist column specifying the time, will make this much easier to implement.
