Manual Input of negative values

CorOS Version: 2.0.0

Describe your issue:
When I try to input a negative numerical value, the negative button is either initially unavailable (in the case of the current value being 0.00), or inverts the current value (so a negative value becomes a positive), then any further numerical input is appended to the end.

Steps to reproduce your issue:

  1. Tap on a numerical parameter that can be negative
  2. Press the minus key (-) then any numbers (eg. '-, 3, 0, 0 to get β€˜-3.00’)
  3. Resulting value will be incorrect
    Examples when typing in '-, 3, 0, 0 to get '-3.00:
    Original value of 0.05 becomes -53.00
    Original value of -0.45 becomes 453.00
    Original value of 0.00 becomes 3.00 (negative input is ignored unless numbers are pressed first).

I expected this to happen:
When I tap a numerical value to enter one manually, whatever I type should totally overwrite what is there currently.

I have tried the following things:

  • I have tried various different values both positive and negative.
    This functionality works fine for all positive values.

Hi @tomfs , I have tried to duplicate using an amp block and unable to replicate the same results. Example: Changed the output of an amp block from 6db to -6db using the numerical keypad etc. Which component(s) are you referring to? Thanks!

Currently doing this on the Output value of the Bogna Uber Lead, but have experienced this on other amp blocks too.

Thanks. I actually tried with the Bogner Uber Clean but also just tried with the Bogner Uber Lead and was able to set the output from 0.0 to -6dB without issue. Which parameter isn’t working specifically for you? Note, I did enter 6.00 then β€˜-’ and it took the value as -6.00dB etc.

It’s the output parameter I am using. It’s to do with the highlighting of the current value.

If the currrent value is numerical and positive, then whatever positive value you input overwrites it completely (as expected).
If the current value is 0, then the negative button must be pressed after any numerical values (which is undesireable).
If the current value is negative, then pressing the negative button flips the value to positive, then removed the text highlight, so that any further numbers are appended to the end.

I would expect that no matter what the current value, pressing the keys β€˜-, 3, 0, 0’ in that exact order should always result in a final value of -3.00.

To be specific, I can still set the value to whatever I need, I just have to clear the current value first and/or enter the value in an odd order (eg. β€˜3, 0, 0, -’) which doesn’t really make sense.

Thanks for the clarification and diagnostics! I have forwarded to support for review.
