Kontakt 7 Long Patch Names

Options

Hi

Quite often in the browser I can't see the full preset name of an instrument as it’s too long to fit into the space available. Is there a way to re-scale the area and see the full preset name without having to load the preset in?

Thanks.

    @K7player Ok, I see what you mean, unfortunately, then there is not much to be done. I'll report the issue to the Kontakt team and people in charge of NKS so maybe they can also contakt Audio Imperia about this. For example, there is no need for the "Nucleus LE" in the title.

    I assume you mean the new browser of Kontakt 7, you can easily drag & pull the menu:

    I’ve tried that thanks but that only enables seeing the whole list of presets. The column width stays the same.

    I was speaking in the singular above. The individual preset names that have dots at the end are the ones that are too long to fit in the column width available and they still won’t show in that wider display.

    Couldn’t do a video sorry but you can see that all of the strings, for example, look the same.

    I should have put in screenshot in my first post but that’s good that you see what I mean now.

    Getting rid of the “Nucleus LE” does sound like a very easy interim solution.

    Thanks for your help and let’s hope the Kontakt team can improve the situation at some point soon.

    I am having the same problem. I have all 5 8DIO Choirs and many others that have very long preset names. The problem of course is that the first dozen letters naming each preset are the same for each one . So, it's impossible to find the one I want and 8Dio does not have a list available of the preset names for their libraries and therefore I cannot make a cheat-sheet either... and some of their choirs literally have dozens of preset names in each library. What a mess. N.I. needs to make it so that when you pull that vertical line to the left it widens those preset name columns by another dozen letter, or more.

    It’s a real shame and a bit of a disgrace that this has not been put right yet. Is there a reason why it can’t get fixed ASAP? What are the developers doing if not working on this sort of problem!!

    Unusable for YOU. Fortunately I know how to select and filter for what I want to see because I know how to work a computer.

    So, DunedinDragon, you don’t see this as a problem? Perhaps you could share your knowledge on the subject and enlighten, rather than dismiss the issue the way you did.
