New Preferences Window & File Menu Remix
I've added a better preferences menu, which now shows all settings in one window with a search bar and help popups:
I'll try to add all settings there (including the audio / MIDI settings and UI stuff) so there will be just one place instead of them being scattered all across the place.
While I was at it, I also started reshuffling the File menu, which was pretty overdue. Basically I swapped the order of the XML and .hip file commands and called the save to .hip file commands Archive. This might be confusing when you are used to the old way, but since I heavily recommend using the XML file structure for saving instruments, this will make things clearer in the future.
TLDR: Use File -> Save as XML / File -> Open XML from now on.
In this new layout, in which menu can we set Hise path?
@remarkablex that's what I can't find too
@christoph-hart any update on the menu design? There is currently no way to set the HISE path
There is a branch in the git (settings_rewrite) in which this issue is fixed. https://github.com/christophhart/HISE/tree/settings_rewrite .
it still needs some testing, though..
It's merged back to the master branch now.
I was rewriting the settings system and this was rather annoying because it affected almost the entire codebase, but it should run smoothly now again (there might be a few hiccups left that I'll sort out the next days).
