In Will's Phaser/GUI video tutorial the GUI designer has visible icons for the different elements which you can simply drag and drop onto your GUI. In my RackAFX, I can see a list of templates but they are not graphical, just simple text strings and a list of contents. Is there a way I can change the settings of my RackAFX to use the visible icons? I find that view to be more intuitive.

Actually I just discovered the new VSTGUI4-based GUI Designer. Got much to learn and work on 🙂

Yeah, that was the old, pre VSTGUI4 GUI designer. It had a fatal flaw in that the GUIs could not be ported to MacOS.

By adding the list box of text strings, I was able to cram way more controls into that sidebar. You still just drag and drop them like usual. The video is here:

With this GUI designer, the same GUI will appear in VST2/3 Mac/Win, AU (Mac), and AAX (Mac/Win). Note that the Make AAX Option is only available in v6.7 and later, currently in Beta testing.
