Possibly you pressed one of these buttons stop, pause, play, next/prev track or used the seekbar AFTER you'd started scheduler event. If the scheduler detects user activity (stop, pause, play, next/prev track, using the seekbar) then it stops action list execution.


Hmm, maybe when adding an event you could make a checkbox called "forced" which won't stop it when any of those buttons are pressed. I know that there are times when I want to awaken in two hours so I set it and then change tracks or something else. ?


Second that!


The new menu item events are very confusing: In the preferences the checkbox now has two meanings - concerning date/time event or player event checking them enables the action but concerning the menu item events they just cause displaying in main menu.
Also they are not named by what they do (from now do .... !) but by the place you can enable them. That is irritating. And not really necessary: Why should i always go to the preferences to set if they are displayed in main menu or not?

Let me make an suggestion how all that could be organized in a more userfriendly way:

a) stop/play/pause... doesn't stop the execution
b) checking the box in preferences starts the execution of all events
c) in main menu a check sign shows if the action is beeing executed (there is now no way to see what menu item is executed - not in preferences because of what i said above and also not in main menu)

And at last:

If b) and c) are realized the date/time and player events could also be displayed in the main menu with a pretty name and with quick access.

What do you think, Andrew_Smolko?

Thanks for this plugin! smile.gif

Why 2 meanings? One meaning: EVENT will be handled by scheduler (checked state) or not (unchecked state)! Using a menu item is an EVENT. If you don't want scheduler to handle menu item event, why this menu item must be displayed in submenu?

Not a good idea, I prefer to stop fade in using some of this buttons. Better solution is proposed by gren

Impossible. Due to internal architecture of the plugin.
