1  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / Re: [BUG] Selecting board on: March 20, 2013, 06:13:43 pm
I HAD the same problem. I needed to open the boards.txt and find the board I needed, count down from the last visible board in the IDE menu, then use the down arrow key to select it. You know you got it right when it shows up in the bottom right corner as being the one you are programming. I say HAD because when I posted the problem here ---> http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,154800.0.html , eried sent me a message pointing me here ---> http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,118440.0.html. smiley-grin Hope this helps, and I hope the "Arduino Team" adds a patch in the next iteration.

Dude, just take all this time and energy you obviously have on your hands and make something with the damn box. Shit....
I think someone needs a hug. smiley-yell

RadioShack finally has some nice Arduino stuff. I was so excited that I got a few new boards, as I was driving home I accidently spilled my Iced tea all over my seat and in one of the RadioShack bags. Thank God the paper packaging was able to hold off the tea long enough for me to pull over and save the boards from the sticky mess. I don't know what I would do if that paper packaging wasn't there to save my ass. Thanks Arduino smiley

It has finally happened. I have too many Arduino compatible boards. Why doesn't the IDE take the number of boards into account? When I go to the menu to select the board I'm going to program the newest ones that I've added are below the bottom edge of the screen.

To select the board I'm programming, I have to:
  • Open the "boards.txt" file.
  • Find the board I am programming.
  • Manually count it's place in line.
  • THEN I have to go back to the IDE
  • Press the down arrow until I'm pretty sure it is on the right board.
  • Press <ENTER> and hope the board that shows in the bottom right corner is the correct one.
WHAT A PAIN! I hope the next version has a scroll bar if all the boards don't fit on the screen at once.
Is there a workaround besides creating two separate files and figuring out which one needs to be loaded on starup?

Great job here! A well placed spring may be all you need to get that head buzz squared away. smiley-lol Just my 2 cents. Keep it up, looking foward to future improvements.

Hello everyone. Just had to post in the forum to get my userID to plant a flag on the map. From the U.S. too by the way. Go Arduino!
