Dropbox insert and remove function

Post by Djpappa » Thu Apr 01, 2021 11:36 am

I have been using imidi patchbay for a few years now and it's fantastic. I have my setlists set up with PDFs linked to Dropbox. Just recently, the insert and remove documents function stopped working. I can still create setlists and add/delete songs, but cannot modify the documents at all. What do I need to do to solve this problem?

Since my original post, I tried reinstalling my imidi patchbay app on my ipad, but there is still no synchronization between Dropbox and iMidi Patchbay. In the global setup it shows Dropbox status as offline and I cannot load a backup from Dropbox. When I try to insert a document on a new test song, I get a message that says "no files found. Add your PDF sheets to 'apps/imidipatchbay/sheets in your Dropbox." I still have my PDFs in that folder, but for some reason iMidi Patchbay isn't finding it. I saw other posts related to this issue, but they all seem unresolved. There must be a simple fix for re-establishing the connection between Dropbox and iMidi Patchbay? Please help.

I am having the same issue since the most recent update. I can add a pdf, but I cannot remove a PDF and once a PDF is added, I cannot add another PDF. Johannes, can you please assist us? Since the last update, I am also regularly experiencing hanging synths and I have to use the PANIC button. This is something I did not experience before. It happens at every performance now.

Many thanks

I am having the same issue. I like to copy some of my patches, but I need to add new PDF with lyrics to new song. I have gig on the 18th of the month and I'd rather not have to program songs from scratch. I used to be able to do this with no problem.

thanks

The issue continues with no response from the developer. I have had great experiences in the past. Perhaps IMIDIPatchbay is no longer being supported. It seems time to migrate to another app at this point. Pity.

I couldn’t agree more with Marcelo’s post. This app did exactly what I was looking for and ,unfortunately, I have not found another app that handles midi program changes and simultaneously displays charts with set lists. If you know of an alternative, please post it.
