I’m not sure if this is intended behavior or a bug in the design of the Lyrics transport bar.
The line appears in the vertical center (as I would have expected) of the area dedicated to lyrics in the case of an unmaximized window, while it is drawn, starting from the top, more or less at 1/3 of the area dedicated to lyrics in the case of maximized window.
In my case, the most frequently used feature is the one with the maximized window.
After having prepared a good number of Songs using the Lyrics function and having used this function in rehearsals, I realized that it would be desirable to have the Lyrics transport bar always and in any case vertically centered in the area dedicated to the lyrics.
could you please give us some screenshot about the current behaviour and a screenshot with your wish behaviour? Maybe you could draw a line or something. Then I surely understand your problem. At the moment the transport cursor should stop at 1/3 of the hight of the screen while the timeline of the left will move on.
first of all, I apologize because, investigating the issue of the aqua transport bar position, I realized that the behavior I denoted occurs only in the (rather rare) transition from maximized to unmaximized window and viceversa: in other words, I think it is of a decidedly negligible incoherent representation.
On the contrary, the current positioning of the aqua transport bar at 1/3 of the area dedicated to lyrics I really think it is desirable to bring it to a 1/2 and I say this after having prepared many lyrics with different BPM and metrics (and hearing the complaints of my singer ).
Wanting to be more precise and with the help of screenshots of the as-is situation:
To further improve the usability of the Lyrics functionality, I would also suggest an approach already used in the Chords functionality that distinguishes the GUI in editing and non-editing state; in practice, if the edit is enabled, the GUI would be (except for the Edit button) the as-is one:
While in the case of disabled edit, it should be impossible to select a lyric and the portion of the interface dedicated to the single lyric properties should be hidden thus recovering space for displaying the lyrics:
Having the possibility (if I understand correctly) for the user to be able to set the aqua transport bar position among the options [1/3, 1/2, 2/3] as a Preference would be the best, even if I would keep 1/2 as default
