Help! Lost Icon Palette!

I dragged the icon palette down out of the way, when I wanted to see the control track better. I didn’t think I dragged it completely off the screen.

Yet now I cannot see it at all. There is no part of it to drag back!

I clicked in the View menu, and see that View Icon Palette is still checked. I uncheck it, and check it again, but still cannot see the palette.

I exited Vocaloid Editor, and re-started, to see if that will do it, but still cannot get the palette back.

I tried re-sizing the window of Vocaloid Editor all different ways, to see if I could catch some corner of the Icon Palette again, to drag back. However, nothing I do will bring back any glimpse of it.

How do I get the icon palette back? Do I have to do something in the registry, or in an .ini file?

Thank you.

I ended up solving the problem, by modifying the Vocaloid.ini file.

I should mention, however, that I shouldn’t have had to do this, that there should be a way to see the palette again from within the program. I don’t know if this has been fixed in Voc2, or if there was a way to do it that I missed in Voc1. Anyhow, if developers are reading, please notice.

I’ll explain how I did it, in case anyone else has that problem, and comes across this post:

In the Vocaloid folder under "Program Files", there is a file called vocaloid.ini. (If you have the viewing of extensions disabled, pelase enable them.) With Vocaloid not running, double-click on that file, which should open it in Notepad. (Best to back up the file first, as I did, by copying the unmodified file to a different location.)

Scroll down to the section called [WndRect]. Underneath that look for the entry IconPalette=

After the equal sign, I had the numbers 763, 740, 1110. 1014. (Yours may vary.) I deleted those numbers, saved the file, re-started Vocaloid, and my icon palette was back.

Again though, developers, there should be a simpler and more obvious way to do this. Many users might not think of, or be comfortable with, modifying an .ini file.

Also, in the future, if I want to get the icon palette out of the way, rather than dragging it down as I did this time, I might more likely just uncheck it in the View menu, then check it again when I want to see it again. Be careful about dragging the palette too far out of the way, or you may not be able to get it back, without an .ini file mod like I described.

Does not replace anything, only your skill with the options in posterior window to edit the voz

Maiki –

I deleted just the numbers and saved the file but the vocaloid editor relaunched with the same icon palette settings. Do I delete the entire icon palette line ?
IconPalette = 737,759,1080,1029

Thanks,
Tom

Maiki –

I deleted the entire Icon Palette line in the C:\Program Files\Vocaloid Configuration Settings and the Icon Palette magically returned!

Thanks,
Tom
