Some Requests

(a) I have reported about an annoyance in Version 5 (which is not present in Version 4) some time back. This concerns the issue of the editing window losing focus and buried in other editing windows after you click "OK". The result of this behaviour is that I need to click the editing window again. I open several windows and having to click the window again is a pain when I have a large batch of files to edit. And worse, I occasionally end up clicking the wrong window and closing the wrong file. Please refer to these threads for reference http://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/showthread.php?34885-V5-Upgrade-Email&highlight= and http://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/showthread.php?34710-Editing-Window-minimizes-after-clicking-on-OK-on-Completion-notification

I recently downloaded the latest version hoping that this annoyance has been patched but to my dismay it has not been rectified. Can something be done about this asap?

(b) Actually, it would have been better if we could do away with that "OK" dialogue box or perhaps allow us the option to do away with the "OK" dialogue box under "Settings" as it results in one more click. Perhaps the info contained in the dialogue box can be dumped into a log file. Most of the time, I am not interested in the info contained in the dialogue box and just want to get on with the editing. If this is too much to ask for, then at least I will settle for (a) being looked into

(c) Currently when we mark a section of video to be deleted, we set the "In" point and the "Out" point. When we mark the "Out" point, a red bar appears over the the section of video to be deleted. The problem is that there is no indicator that the "In" point has been set. If I had not clicked the "In" point hard enough and it did not register, I would only realise it after I click the "Out" point in which case the program would simply overwrite my last "Out" point with this one - and messed up my editing. I would then have wasted time on locating both my "In" and "Out" points. The only cure for now is to ensure I click hard enough or clicking multiple times for clicks that I am doubtful. Can there be some indicator that the "In" point has been set. Once the "Out" point has been set, the indicator can be dispensed with

(d) Under the navigation controls settings, is it possible for us to customise the number of frames eg the right arrow key to move 5 frames ahead?

Thank you very much

Puzzled here as I can not seem to get my VRD5 to function as I am understanding yours functions.
Maybe a misunderstanding of terms?....

"The problem is that there is no indicator that the "In" point has been set."

In my VRD5 when I set the "in" (start?) point on the navigation bar there is an obvious marker set "]" and the same for the "Out" (end?) point.

"When we mark the "Out" point, a red bar appears over the the section of video to be deleted"

In mine a red bar appears ONLY once I click on "Cut Selection" or "Trim Unselected" button.

Ah, I see, you have "Enable One-click selection" turned on... might want to turn that off.
Will give you a chance to slow down and check your IN and OUT markers for correct placement before you chose "cut selection".

I have forgotten to place my IN marker before and messed up my previous selections BUT if you go to
"Edit" > "Undo"(Ctrl+Z) it will "step" backwards through your editing steps and let you recover your previous cut selections.

Thanks JMC

I have "Enable One-click selection" turned on but I must have been blind partly because the bracket markers are always present. There is indeed a bracket indicator and in view of this I will like to withdraw Request (c)

But regarding your Ctrl+Z, undo is unable to recover the "In" point that you have set had you not clicked hard enough ... Thanks anyway
