"Show Previous/Next Pattern" functional?
« on: September 03, 2009, 15:02:36 »
What is the "Show next/prev patterns" option in the General Options tab?

The context help says it "displays greyed-out version of previous/next patterns in the Pattern Editor," but i'm not seeing this (even though i have it toggled on). Is it supposed to look like this?



I have found these two threads on the forum. I assume this is the same subject.

Is this in fact functional? If so, how do i show the next/prev pattern in the Pattern Editor (besides toggling this checkbox)?[/img]

If you have "always center active row" disabled, you won't see greyed out patterns.

no, i just don't know what to do today. :P
i personally like that the active row is always centered, i always know where to look and scrolling looks nicer. :)
