Quickly setting left locator to project start (or "0")

Is there a way to quickly set the left locator to Project Start, or set it to time “” in Cubase 10? The “enter left locator” command (default <shift>-L) for me only selects the “minutes” field of the locator display (when primary time format is “seconds”).

So if my current left locator position is 1:31, and I do <shift>-L, 0, <return>, my left locator ends up at 31 seconds, not 0.

Is there a way to target the left locator value in the Project Logical Editor? Or some other way to get a keypress (or two) to pop that left locator over to 0 or project start?

Note also that select-all (<ctrl>-A) followed by “locators to part” does not necessarily work because there is no guarantee that there will be a part that starts at project 0.


Just make a macro in the key command window.

  1. “Go to Project Start” key command
  2. Set left locator (or whatever it’s called) key command

Nice. That works, and is more straightforward than using the PLE as well.


No need for a macro or the PLE, just press “.” on a numeric keypad. (a.k.a. “period”, “full stop” or “decimal point”). If you’re using a laptop which no longer has a numeric kepad, just press “,” (“comma”).
