Return General Console Combinations Recordings Demo Gallery Settings de en

This is the documentation of Napo 5.0 - 5.13. The manual of Napo 4.24 is still available here.

General Remarks

Napo's user interface is built from a set of specialised main views, some of which have associated helper views. You select a main view by tapping an element of the icon bar that is displayed at the bottom of the screen:

These are the icons (GLYPHICONS, by the way) and their respective purpose:

This is to display the Console view, which shows the stop, tremulant and coupler knobs and some other frequently used buttons.

iOS: The Console view can also display onscreen keyboards. Tap the icon repeatedly to toggle between the stops display and a combined stops and keyboards display. After long-tapping the icon, an action menu appears which makes it possible to switch between the abstract and the authentic Console view and between the full view and the quadrants view. The latter can as well be done by pinch gestures in the stops display. Starting with Napo 5.1, the action menu also offers a function for configuring the format of the onscreen keyboards.

macOS: A separate window is used for the screen keyboards. Click the icon to open this keyboards window. After long-tapping the icon it is also possible to switch between the abstract and the authentic Console view. Starting with Napo 5.3, the onscreen keyboards can be configured, too.
This is to display the Combinations view, which allows you to edit combination banks and combinations. A combination is a kind of bookmark, so we chose a bookmark icon.
This is to display the Recordings view, where you can listen to and administrate your audio recordings or other audio files uploaded to the app.
This icon is to display the Demo view, which lets you play some demo pieces that are included in the app.
This is to display the Gallery view, where you can enjoy images of the organ, the church or concert hall or its surrounding.
This is to display the Settings view, where various kinds of app settings can be edited. Long-press the icon to access saved settings. Furthermore, in iOS you can after long-tapping toggle between allowed and forbidden background operation without having to change to the Settings view. In case of allowed background operation the icon is shown in green color.

Starting with version 5.4, the background operation can be switched here in macOS also. In this case it has an effect only when a Launchpad is used. Without background operation, the app responds to Launchpad commands only when it owns the main window. With background operation enabled it does this even while you work with another app.

There are some more elements that are common to all of the above mentioned views. Which of these are actually displayed, depends on the settings made in the Settings view.
