Setting category for new performances

Unread post by TotoFan » Wed Dec 12, 2018 2:26 pm

Probably I'm just stupid - but could not find a way to assign a performance into a category. Could somebody point me to the right section of the UI?

Thanks

How about the way we create documents when we like the formatting of an old one? Just pick a patch that is already in the desired category and edit by importing layers, etc. (I have not actually learned the MODX yet because I have not actually bought one YET.

I think I found something useful - basically the category of the first voice in the performance will determine the category. Or so is my understanding by reading docs and experimenting.

The John Melas Editing apps can assign any category you want to a performance. Unfortunately Yamaha decided to not allow users to create their own.

For example I would find a category of SPLITS to be very useful!
