Sorry, don't think I sent this to the list: The volume slider in this position makes the think of a pan control, not a volume control. This comes from my experience with physical sound boards though, and a novice may not have this problem.
You could do a volume icon that pops up a volume slider, a la rhythmbox and others. If you were really clever, you could find a way to integrate it with the mute button and take up no additional space. This is less discoverable though, and would really rely on a good descriptive icon, or a little mini popup arrow thingy (excuse my advanced technical jargon). :) On 22/06/2008, Laszlo Pandy <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Thanks for the patch Tom.
