Hi guys,

Please can you fix the rating stars. As it is, they all default to 3 stars. So that means to highlight any sounds you can only give them 4 or 5 stars. Which is kind of silly, and leaves no room for other gradations, short of selecting every single sound and making them zero.
It makes no sense to me. I would expect that the default behaviour is no stars for any sound, which will then let the user use the full 5 stars to their satisfaction.

Thanks

default settings at 3 stars are a different colour to a rating you've deliberately set to 3 stars, and presets you've rated appear above those you haven't.

Ok, but why bother making them all 3 stars yellow? It still doesn't make sense to me why you would want that. I would prefer no stars for ones I haven't rated, so I can clearly see they await ratings/checking out.

Put this file in the Alchemy/Skins/Factory folder to display "no stars" for unrated presets:

Rename the exiting file first so that you can revert if you don't like the change.

Peace,

Thanks, Andy, that would be terrific. However the link doesn't seem to work, just comes up with a blank page.

You'll need to right-click + 'Save As' the file, then copy it to the Skins folder. It displays a blank page because the image is blank.

Peace,
Andy.

Got it! Thanks so much, that looks much better to me, more logical and uncluttered, and I can clearly see what sounds I have rated. Great.

Cool. The file will be overwritten any time Alchemy is updated, so it might be a good idea to keep a safe copy somewhere or bookmark it in your browser.

Peace,
Andy.

Andy,

while we're at it: is there a way to not display low rated presets, say, with 1 star?

Cheers,
Daniel

Not directly on the GUI but you can using the search box. Typing:
Code: Select all
-*

will hide all presets with a 1 star rating. To hide presets with a 3 star rating type:
Code: Select all
-***

This can also be used to hide all presets with a certain word in the name or specific attributes e.g. '-bass' will hide all bass presets.

Peace,
Andy.
