Proposal pages help us get from feature requests into actual plans. This proposal page is about adding a way to see detail at the same time as seeing context.
Proposal pages are used on an ongoing basis by the Audacity development team and are open to edits from visitors to the wiki. They are a good way to get community feedback on a proposal.


  • Note: Proposals for Google Summer of Code projects are significantly different in structure, are submitted via Google's web app and may or may not have a corresponding proposal page.


Proposed Feature

Some method, or maybe a choice of several, for simultaneously looking at the same waveform at different resolutions.

Developer backing

  • James Crook
  • Paul L

Use Cases

Detailed work on a longer recording.

Inspiration

This example by Julian Dorn and Leon Schlechtriem shows an inset enlarged view that moves with the cursor:

Brett Park's focus plus context interface, similar in concept to the 'dock' from Mac OSX. The green area is enlarged, and moves as you move the scroll bar:

Details

Current Status

The AU14 TrackPanel can show a copy of the same track at different zooms. Selections and play cursor are shown on both views. Navigation in one can cause scrolling of the other.
