Title: [EOS M]Menu short Display time
Post by: Metapartikel on March 19, 2014, 03:17:30 PM
Hi my first Posting here.

First thank you @all for the great stuff you are doing here!

I have bought a Canon EOS M primary with ML for Time Lapse. I have one tiny problem! How can I extend the VERY SHORT Menue-Display time. It´s often so short to read the discription! Help to find the feature would be great. I have search the Forum but found nothing. Because perhaps about my english I´m not a native  ;)

When I´m sure in using ML I put it on my 5D Mk III. Can´t wait for it. Thanks again.

Exactly what menu display?

Ok my english is not the best.

I have a very short time, about 2-3 sek, in the Magic Latern menu bevor it closes and the Live view starts again. I have to scroll in the menu to stay in ML.

I forget to say I´m using this nightly build: magiclantern-Nightly.2014Mar18.EOSM202

I don´t think it is a bug more like a short feature? ;) But I want to stay longer in the ML menu.

Best regards

On the card that you have Magic Lantern installed, please delete all files in the SETTINGS folder, inside the ML folder.

See if this fixes your issue.

No nothing changed after deleting the setting files. I have tried another SD card too, same problem in the ML Menu. Max. 3 Seconds after doing nothing in the ML Menu, Live View starts again.

This only happened recently?  Was ok in older builds?

If yes, can you find which build (date) the problem started occurring?

I´ve using ML since one week when I got the M. I can try some builds to find the last working.

I think it started actually staying on longer after the refactor. I just see the canon dialog for a second on the screen.

I had tried the oldest available nightly builds version and also there the same live view after 2 seconds doing nothing in ML menu. Possible a "Monday" M-Body that I´ve got? The Rest works good and I´m very pleased with ML.

The underlying Canon dialog times out. I'll check the eosm  maybe there's one that works better

I filed a bug report about this on the tracker: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/issue/1974/6d-in-live-view-mode-ml-menu-times-out . There seem to be a few reports of the same problem.
