In the export audio dialog, although it gives me the name of the destination folder, I can't see any of the files that are already in that folder. I can't create a new folder either, I need to leave Bigwig, go into the Mac Finder, find where I want to create the folder, create it, return to Bigwig, then search for the folder in Bigwig, then export my audio into the folder. Several steps more than I'd like to be taking when I'm in the creative flow.

Is there a workaround here or is this just a limitation of Bigwig 1.1.7?

Is there a feature request area, or is this the right place to post these comments?


When exporting change here, it will be saved like this to next time you open up and export in bitwig as default after changing once and exportet and saved. So change to what i show in picture, this will allow you to change name of the file and where it will export. Cheers.. ps i had hard time find this also, you are not alone ;)

Thanks, I realise you can set the name of the file you want to save, but you can't see what files are already stored in the folder, and you can't create a new folder to save into. For example, say I want to save a file with the following name:


Say I export a few more tracks but then a few minutes later I've made some changes and I want to replace this file by saving over it, I can't just select the file from within the folder and replace it, since it's not possible to view the files that are in the target folder. I have to search for the folder in the mac finder, search for the file name to make sure I get it right, then copy the file name and paste it into bigwig, or type it out and hope I get the name right. A bit messy.

You have correct when choosing folder to export to its not possible to see where and what exports are in the files. =) I see that it can become messy that way yes... indeed forward this to support :) Nice thoughts for useful ideas :)
