First time using audio part editor after upgrading to a new Windows 7 computer and Cubase 6 (6.5) (previously using Cubase 5 on an XP machine)…
Page 296 of the manual confirms that CTRL DRAG is still the procedure for moving an event to another lane:
“To move an event to another lane without accidentally moving it horizontally, press [Ctrl]/[Command] and drag it up or down.”
I am experiencing what appears to be a bug. In both the Audio Part Editor, and in the Project Window using lanes, pressing the CTRL key causes the Play tool to be enabled. No dragging possible. I can drag to another lane without CTRL, but then I am of course not assured of maintaining the horizontal location.
I scanned the list of key commands to see if this could be originating from some mis-setting there, but found nothing that looked to be the cause.
