From my first trials, CP 2.1 seems to be a nice piece of software, good job. However, there are two small things that are bugging me:
1. Pipeline export / git version control
I’m using git to version control my pipelines, which has worked pretty well so far. In CP 2.1, everything is organized in projects with individual entries, making it hard to version control it properly. I can export to pipelines, but first it doesn’t have a keyboard shortcut and second, the field (I’m on Mac) does not remember the file name, it always says “pipeline.cppipe”. It would be great to have an (easy) keyboard shortcut to save (not “Save as …”) the pipeline, and not the project, with one keystroke.
One little detail from the previous CP version: The module description has a position indicator in it:
So every time I remove or insert a module, all other module headers get changed, thus appearing in the commit, which is imho not necessary. Is the module_num field really necessary, or is CP able to find the module order by “order of appearance” in the pipeline file?
2. CSV export
The new version of the CSV export has two header rows. While this is clearly easier to overlook, it makes extra steps necessary to import these files in programs such as R. R can only handle one header row. It would be awesome to have a setting in the next version that can revert back to the way it was in the previous CP version.
Thanks a lot and keep up the good work. I want to let you know that CP saved my PhD thesis.
