I am unable to drag several of the GUI elements onto the GUI. Here are the ones that don't work for me.

Knob Control
Button Banks
Meters
Slider

Everything else works smoothly.

The only rule is that you have to already have the controls declared as sliders or buttons in the main GUI. For example, if you don't have any LED controls set up, you can't drag them on the GUI Designer page. Otherwise, you do it like the videos. (to drag a knob, you click on the knob and drag the whole control). I remember that you also have an issue about where to click to get the button setup dialog and I am thinking more and more this is a parallels issue. So far, I have not had any problems myself with dragging controls and the last 2 years of grad/undergrad classes have been using this editor to design their GUIs. So I think something else is going on.

Something to try - take your project directory and put it on the Windows boot-camp partition in one of the classroom Macs. Since we use bootcamp in the classroom, there are no VM issues. Then see if you can drag/drop the components.

On other thing - you *can* drag and drop the 3 assignable buttons and the Joystick control. That's because these controls, unlike all the others, do not have an underlying variable that connects them to the plug-in; they are message-senders only. My guess is that you don't have any sliders setup on the main GUI yet.

BTW: when you setup the 3 assignable buttons, leaving their button strings blank will hide them on the GUI.

This is the solution to my issue. i had to set the elements up in the standard view before attempting to drag parts onto the custom gui view.

Hello, I am having a different issue with the knobs within Rackafx.  I have created custom knobs in Knobman, however after different compiling the knob images are disappearing upon GUI loading.  Even with custom know graphics being switched within the code.

 

Any ideas why this is??

As long as you follow the instructions here

your custom graphics should show up correctly. You do need to make sure that you've got the proper settings for the number of images in the strip-animation for knobs, and of course the size of the knobs.
