Bug Description

I am using OpenShot v. 0.9.34 installed from a 32 bit .deb in 32 bit Ubuntu 9.04

When working with multiple clips stacked vertically, I can apply different animation and layout attributes to each clip. If I want to change one of the attributes, I can't tell what has already been assigned, or if I have even assigned one. Would it be possible to add a check mark or similar to the attribute that has been selected in the Animate list and the Layout list, so that the next time the clip is right clicked and you go back to Animate or Layout, you can see what has been selected for that clip?

I also have to say that this is the first Linux video editor where the effects actually do what they say and act in an expected and logical manner. Thank you.

One quick question. When you release a newer .deb, do I need to uninstall the previous version before installing the new one?

Martin, thanks for the feedback. When a newer .deb is released, all you
have to do is install it. It should overwrite the files of any older
versions. As far as adding check-marks to the context menu, it's a
possibility for a future version. I understand what you are asking for, and
while I agree it makes perfect sense, it's a bit tricky to implement the way
it's coded. But we'll keep it on the list.

Thanks,
-Jonathan

Would it be any easier to have a pop up balloon when your mouse rolls over the clip that shows any changes to the default settings for the clip? If there are no attributes set, there is no balloon, but if you changed something it would be in the pop up.

Some people don't like pop up balloons, so maybe binding to the "A" key (for attribute) or "C" (for changes), or any other key that makes sense so that it toggle a popup for that clip to show changes.

Another thought is an icon on the clip like the current ones for mute audio and video that shows/hides changes to attributes for that clip.

Icons would be a great visual help. If implementing individual check marks or radio buttons per option is too difficult maybe we can at least have icons that indicate visibility, audio state (already there), effect, animation, special layout and fade in/out.

I made a little mockup for this. It's ugly but it shows the idea.
