Startup

Opening multiple files in the file explorer, starts up multiple instances

DescriptionWhen selecting multiple PCG files in the file explorer and double clicking or open them, for each selected PCG file an own instance of PCG Tools is started.
WorkaroundSelect only one PCG file and open it, then load the other PCG files manually.
Fix expectationNot possible.

Splash screen is not using internationalized texts but always English

DescriptionThe splash screen is not using internationalized texts but always using English texts.
WorkaroundNone.
Fix expectationLow priority.

Support

Concatenated MIDI system exclusive files are read partly

DescriptionIn some cases, MIDI system exclusive files consist of multiple 'logical' files concatenated. From these file, only the first part is read; the rest is ignored. An example of such file are the Valhala sysex files for the Korg M1.
WorkaroundUse a hex editor to split such files in more files.
Fix expectationUnknown.

GUI

Moving a window behind the menu/toolbar makes it immovable

DescriptionWhen moving/dragging a window behind the menu or behind the toolbar of the main window, the moved/dragged window cannot be moved again and the upper part of the window is invisible.
WorkaroundSave the PCG file (if changes need to be saved), close it and reopen it again.
Fix expectationDue to a problem in the used GUI library, there is no solution for the short term.

Resizing does not change cursor

DescriptionWhen resizing the window after opening PCG, the cursor does not change to a double ended (resize) arrow to help visualize the resizing operation.
WorkaroundNone, however resizing still works but without change of cursor type.
Fix expectationDue to a problem in the used GUI library, there is no solution for the short term.

Menu invisible when hovering over it

DescriptionWhen hovering with the mouse over the menu, the items become invible. Only seen by one person on Windows XP system.
WorkaroundMinimize and maximize the application.
Fix expectationLow priority due to no testing possibilities.

PCG Window

Selected patches are sometimes retained after switching banks and/or scrolling

DescriptionWhen selecting one or more patches, going to another bank, scroll up or down at least one screen size and return to the original bank, when selecting a new patch, the previously selected patches sometimes are still selected. This problem can also occurs after scrolling inside one bank.
WorkaroundScroll through the list where the previous selected patches are, and reselect the desired patches. Note t hat the number of selected patches are shown at the top of the screen to immediately see if this unwanted effect occurs.
Fix expectationWhen changing to a different MDI mechanism, there is no solution for the short term.

Master File

Opening/closing a master file does not always sync related windows correctly

DescriptionOpening or closing a master file does not always synchronize the related PCG windows of Timbre windows using that master file.
WorkaroundSometimes changing banks might help in the PCG Window, or opening/closing the Timbre window. What always helps is opening the PCG window itself.
Fix expectationOnly after a major architectural change.

Changing a master file does not always sync related windows correctly

DescriptionChanging a master file does not always synchronize the related PCG windows of Timbre windows using that master file. A change might be to change the name of a patch, move a patch up or down, or copy/paste in the master file.
WorkaroundSometimes changing banks might help in the PCG Window, or opening/closing the Timbre window. What always helps is opening the PCG window itself.
Fix expectationOnly after a major architectural change.

List Generator

Different GM banks are not recognized

DescriptionThe lists created by the list generator do not make a difference between GM, G(1)-G(9) and G(d) banks. All these banks are shown as GM.
WorkaroundNone.
Fix expectationNot likely, and the consequence is not big. Since GM banks (G(1)-G(9) and G(d)) are not present in a PCG file anyway, it will not matter for most lists.

Not all columns are translated

DescriptionIn the set list generator generated tables for XML, not all column headers are translated in foreign languages.
WorkaroundNone.
Fix expectationLikely within one of the next releases.

List GeneratorCRC values in Patch List sometimes are not in sync with Differences List results.

None; however the difference list is better.
DescriptionFor some models the CRC values (optional columns) in the Patch List, show different numbers while the Differences List marks them as duplicates.
WorkaroundNone.
Fix expectationLikely within one of the next releases.

Copy & Paste

Wave sequences, drum kits and drum patterns are not copied together with programs/combis/set list slots

DescriptionWave sequences, drum kits and drum patterns used in programs/combis/set list slots which are copied do not copy the wave sequence, drum kits and drum patterns.
WorkaroundMake sure the wave sequences, drum kits and drum patterns are located on the same location in both the source and target PCG file.
Fix expectationUnknown

Moved/copied/pasted wave sequences, drum kits and drum patterns do not sync patches using them

DescriptionWhen wave sequences, drum kits and drum patterns are moved/copy/pasted, the patches using them (programs, combis) do not change the references to the changed locations.
WorkaroundManually fix the references.
Fix expectationUnknown

When copying set lists, combis referenced multiple times are copied multiple times.

DescriptionWhen copying set lists (or set list slots), when different set list slots reference to the same combi, those combis are copied multiple times (one per reference) to the clipboard, showing a huge amount of combis in some cases. However, when pasting duplicates are automatically removed. So the only disadvantage in the current implementation is that you cannot see exactly how many combis/programs are really used.
Workaround-
Fix expectationAfter a redesign of the copy/paste functionality.

Global Section/Categories

Use Both Korg Trinity Category A and B both

DescriptionUse both Korg Trinity Category A and B when sorting, displaying and generating lists. Currently either Category A or B is used which is selectable. However, both categories should be used.
WorkaroundNone.
Fix expectationLow priority.
