Hey John,

I'm working on the controller templates for NI Kontrol F1 and X1mk2 which both has the same rotary encoder (click per step) with built in push button under a knob.
My issue is that I cannot place the button on top of an encoder same as I can achieve with standard knob controls. This is not a huge deal, only the option for better aesthetics.

Please find attached JPG with current template layout and my suggestions for the new kind of look for an encoders.

@danicroitor - Thank you for your reply! Which version of the software do you use Mac or PC?

I'm with 2.5 on PC and I'm having a hard time doing that. Radius only changes the size of the button but it is still not possible to place a button on top of endless encoders.

Additionally, When Encoders are deleted from the assignments list (on the left side) their visual representation remains in the controller layout section (on the right side).

2.5 here too
there are many bugs inside the app that makes it almost useless but I assure you that you can do that.

You are correct! I moved Encoder entry above the actual button entry and that worked. Thanks you for the tip.

Regarding a bugs, I figured out that the app starts to duplicate commands if there are 5 and more modes added in.
For simpler scripts with less modes it works fine.

Hi Stevan,

Sorry I'm a little late to this, sounds like you've already figured this out but all you need to do is re-arrange the inputs inside the Controller Manager, this will make it display on top.

Thanks for the note about the Duplication issue too @Stevan. As yet we have been unable to replicate the issue but this extra detail gives us more to go on. So thanks for that :)
