I’ve seen a few threads in this forum (see below), but don’t seem to have an answer regarding what each of the ‘Focus’ key commands are acutally doing within the DAW? Can someone please explain what keystrokes (TAB, UP, DOWN, etc.) the following replicate?:
• Focus - Backward
• Focus- Forward
• Focus - Confirm
• Focus - Escape
It’s difficult to replicate the result of a Macro unless you understand what the functions are actually doing in the background. For example, I was trying to creat a simple macro that adds an audio track (Add Track - Audio), and then selects the ‘Add Track’ button within the screen prompt. I’ve tried adding ‘Focus - Forward’, (once, twice, and so on) then ‘Focus - Confirm’ but it doesn’t seem to work.
Randomly, I added 5x ‘Focus - Forward’ to the same macro, and when it didnt work, I hit ‘Cancel’ in the Add Track window… and it muted a track within the Project Window… So I tried it again… then this time it set Read and Write to all tracks. So my guess is that the Add Track window doesn’t integrate with the ‘Focus’ Key Commands, and only once the window was closed could the macro carry out the remaining steps.
