CAN`T SCROLL DOWN PORTS PAGE

Is this a bug?
 
I have a lot of ports in the port config page, all vertically under each other, and the ports page can only be resized to the size of the main program window,leaving half of my ports inaccessible as there is no way to scroll down?
 
Double finger swipe doesnt work,there are no zoom option,i have about 85 ports to deal with

HI
I don't think Jamie ever imagined 85 ports (I assume this means roughly 45 lines with ins and outs).
 
He has vertical scroll bars for the data windows, but I can't seem to get my 20 plus a side ports to bring vertical scroll bars up on the Port Routing window.
 
Your best fit might be by having MidiOx full screen height and using the menu Window/Tile Vertically or CTRL +F5 as this will compress the space between the DIN plug pics.
 
You can see all your connections in the Options/Midi Devices : Port Mapping window.
You can also make connections here by dragging from the 'Port Map Objects' (inputs) to an output in the 'Port Mapping' listbox as you would on the Port Routing window.
You can also drag an oxm file (located in the Port Map Objects below the input ports ) can be dragged to the connection you just made to  have a datamap just for this connection.
 
Not very satisfactory, but I hope it is a usable work around.
 
An alternative might be to split your devices across two or more instances (of MidiOxs running at the save time).
The layout and devices selected (and connection assigned datamaps) are saved separately for each instance of MidiOx so starting the multiple instances of MidiOx will restore the correct setup in each.
You can use different display features - colour, font size etc - to distinguish one instance of MidiOx from earlier one as this configuration is also saved against that particular instance.
 
 
There is a catch though.  
If some your midi devices have only a single client Midi driver (older Win versions default driver, for example) you will get a memory error when you try to use them in two or more instances of MidiOx.
You will need to either install a MultiClient driver from the device maker or use an earlier instance of Midiox to connect to a MidiYoke or loopMidi software cables (these are MultiClient drivers) and use this as your input in later instances.
eg
Keyboard -> MS Midi driver Single Client -> MidiOx1: Port Routing -> loopMidi1 out - now your keyboard input has a MultiClient loopMidi driver
Start MidiOx2
  loopMidi1 in -> MidiOx2 -> : Port Routing -> synth A
Start MidiOx3
  loopMidi1 in -> MidiOx3 -> : Port Routing -> synth B
etc
 
The other catch is that you can't start just MidiOx2 and MidiOx5, for example, to run by themselves.  
If you you want to just see MidiOx2 and MidiOx5 you have to start MidiOx1 through to MidiOx5, and once they are started you can kill off MidiOx1, MidiOx3 and MidiOx4.
 
 
All the best
Royce
