I'm a big fan of SV and have used it since 1.7.1 to study wildlife audio recordings. I've become very familiar with the tool and how to tune it to get the most out of the sound files I study. But I have one vexing issue that I sorely wish you would help me with.
I have my own preferences for what I need to see when I open a sound file in SV. But when SV starts up with its standard appearance, I am left with several minutes of configuration changes that I must repeatedly walk through, for every new audio file I open. Yes, I do save my settings to a unique session for each audio file before I close. But that doesn't solve the problem for all the new files I've yet to open. Over the course of a day I can open hundreds of new audio files, and have to repeat those "tweaks" repeatedly.
And yes, I have started to drag and drop each new audio file into a standard session that reflects the tuning I desire, but this is still a work around to what we truly need from SV. (Using this approach I have accidentally overwritten existing session files.)
NEEDED: A method to save an individual user's settings as the default view for how SV will open all future audio files, effectively establishing a new "default" setting. In addition to this, there should be a method of reverting to the standard SV settings, should the user desire to do so.
Can we PLEASE get something like this into the next minor release of SV. This is a great tool but that one niggling issue of saving user defaults has been a big pain when I try to convince other researchers of how "user friendly" this tool can be.
