    Hi, first i'd like to apologise for posting the same issue again, but my previous post is not displaying my images properly and I can't find a way to edit it in order to fix the images. I posted this problem about 7 months ago and I'm just wondering if theres any chance of a workaround or update for this mainstage issue sometime soon.

    I'm still using Mainstage 2.1.2 because of this issue but recently it has had some stability issues so I'd really love to move up to 2.2

    I use an Akai MPK61 and I've got my mainstage template set up with the drum pads laid out like on the MPK61. I've put text boxes over each pad to make it easier to remember where all the samples are as I use Mainstage/MPK61 with 4 different bands and have to remember lots of tricky cues for each band.
    Song 2.1.2



    Now when I open the same sessions in 2.2.2 all my pad labels are not visible, except for the occaisonal bit of white at the edge of the buttons. I've figured out that the text box now sits behind the buttons, and I can't seem to change this.



    Here is further demonstration of this:
    2. Mainstage 2.2.2 text:Buttons



    I've considered the "Add hardware Label" option, but its nowhere near as good as what I had - it ends up with messy small buttons with not enough text showing in a rectangle below. Same problems with parameter text.

    And it seems like you can't change the text size in the parameter text labels - if you drag the text box larger it just makes the visible text larger without showing all of the text. In fact the larger you drag the text box, the less text is readable.
    As you can see from the above image, some of my pad cues are fairly detailed and just wouldn't fit at all with text labels.

    I use Mainstage with 5 bands playing numerous gigs per week, with repertoires and performance cues that change frequently. So I really rely heavily on these cues & markers.

    The first image is how the session appears in 2.1.2, the other one is 2.2.2. Obviously it totally messes up my sessions. Its a big problem for me but I imagine it would be a fairly easy fix in the next update, unless someone can direct me to the "bring to front" command or another fix?

    Anyone got any advice regarding this? I'm sure an update that included "bring text to front" would be a really easy fix for the Mainstage developers!
