my request  i don't think is very hard, but it does have a lot of good uses :) how about adding a second window for input to just below theoutput window on the gui... i like the gui now, but the addition of a input preview and visualization is goin to help a lot.

pic 1 that you posted elsewhere... the best place would be before or after the visualization/preview window.

I know I'm not the destination for that suggestion, but I didn't understand it.. input window? Are you suggesting having two previews, one for device input and the other for device output? sort of a "before and after" comparison?
If so, you can choose the device from the list on the left, and by clicking them the preview changes. WM v.99 does that already..

Is it not that?

somewhat... i want the input to show the primary input of the device, and the output to show the real time output of it...  it already does the output, but some of my terrain changes i keep havin to click on both devices, and it takes a lot of time  :?

note: i figure it wouldn't take that much coding to add this since a real time preview of the output is already done.

This is actually a pretty good idea that a couple other people have suggested as well.

The primary block against this happening is, quite simply, limited screen space. At 1024x768, the leftbar is already too long to fit entirely on the screen.

Version 1.0 isn't going to have this feature, but eventually I envision having the leftbar be customizable and have collapsible sections, so you could configure 1,2,or even more views to monitor to your liking.

But thats down the road a ways.

ok, but can't you make the extra preview windows a pop up window you call up and can close at will?
