Custom hand settings lost when using background

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).

  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

How to repeat:

Pick any song
Go to Hands, Colors and Instruments screen
Pick any instrument and change it's settings to custom
Play with custom hand settings (set left / right hand notes, finger number etc) and save it
Now change this instrument settings from custom to background, and then back to custom
--> All custom settings are gone

Why is it a problem?

If there are multiple tracks on a song and you want to practice each of them separately, I would expect to be able to set custom hand settings for each track and switch which one I want to practice and which one I want to be in the background.

The same will be true when you select the left or right hand, too. All three of those effectively do a bulk update to every note in the part (the same as if you'd done it through the custom part editor).

I wonder if the situation you described wouldn't be better suited to some sort of "saved configuration" tool that would let you quickly jump between all of a song's settings (including the sounded/muted, instrument, and color/hidden options, too)? Would that save even more time?
