What tips do people have for relabeling an Overlay?
I’m still playing around with a custom keymap for the video editing overlay in Reaper. I’m going through different iterations as I try it out when I have the need to run though different workflows. I tend to add/replace keys a bit. I swap key positions a lot.
Masking tape works fairly well. It’s easy to cut and label (I’ll probably dig out a fineliner for my next pass as markers bleed a lot). It sticks pretty well the first time I put it down. It doesn’t seem to affect button sensitivity. It’s easy to remove and leaves no mark.
But it doesn’t stick very well the second time, when I move them around. It doesn’t stick that well over a couple of day’s worth of heavy use. It’s a bit of pain cutting it from the roll as I don’t have a narrow enough roll.
Eventually, I could use a permanent pen on the overlay itself, once I’m happy with the layout and it hasn’t changed in a while. But until then, I need something temporary. And ideally, a little bit better than masking tape, if possible.
It’d also be interesting to hear about permanent relabeling ideas. Did markers work well, or did they smudge for you, for example?
