Not sure if this can be seen as a “bug” (I think it is), but it at least can be quite annoying.
I use my shortcut to “go to left locator” of a song. It goes there
Now I zoom in using mouse wheel somewhere in middle/end of song.
If I again press “go to left locator” nothing happens.
You could say “well the cursor/playhead is already at left locator”… but I think the focus/view should go there too
Ok try this, just to see what I mean in action.
Put the playhead at a late part of a song and zoom in.
Use whatever shortcut you have for “go to left locator”. Both the view and the playhead goes there. All good..
Now (while still zoomed in): scroll horizontally, just away from the left locator so you no longer see it.
Again, use whatever shortcut you have for “go to left locator”.
Nope. The view stays where it is.
Because “the playhead is already at the left locator” I guess
But in my mind the view point should also bring focus to to left locator, hence “go to”. Right?
Pressing F twice does get the view focus to where the playhead is.
I just wish I didn’t have to do that on top of the go-to shortcut
There must be something else going on here. I followed your instructions and expanded the screen out side the two monitors I use for the arrange page. My playhead is in the middle. I press 1 (Number) and the left locator comes into view with the playhead… I press 2 for the right locator and the view moves to that although the playhead stays in the same position on the screen. This still works when I am editing midi whilst rolling. What does happen is thatwhen I stop after editing the playhead is out of view. However, now that I have stopped the auto-scroll has reengaged and either I restart and the playhead is visible, or I press F twice and the the playhead is visible if I don’t want to restart.
The official shortcut for going to the left locator is the number 1 on the right of the keyboard and not the top left.
