Sometimes the count in can be a distraction when in loop mode

This is an old post and I notice that the count is shorter in looping mode than in normal mode (only set-go instead of 1-2-3-4-1-2-set-go). This may already have been an improvement added in the past.
But I would appreciate a possibility to toggle counting also in normal mode and to switch it off altogether (full count 1-2-3-4-1-2-set-go, short count set-go, no count at all).

I see the new features threads have been getting a lot of "I second (third... counting upward)" posts, and this is mine on this particular feature request, which there are many in the list just for the looping feature so that it was tough to chose one.

Thowa has a good point. I think one of the benefits of programs that are flexible as this requests asks is that people have different styles and needs.

So perhaps I'm fine with the "1 2 set go" approach because my hands find the "home position" quickly enough. Sometimes you want the whole count so you can look down, put your hands back where they belong (and I use this example because most of the time I use Looping is because I need practice when hand position changes). Some folks just need a quick loop back and go; perhaps they're trying to get a piece to flow and the interruption of the count throws that off.

So, yeah. I second this one.

Man, this one is a popular suggestion. I'm prioritizing this one later this week to discuss.

Thanks for confirming to look into this; will add your remark to my comments in the other threads on this feature.

I love the app, but one of the most frustrating parts is the ridiculously long count-in, especially when multiple measures in the beginning are already rests!

Please please please add a way to customize the count in.

thanks!
