I don’t think this is a bug, but rather a lack of knowledge on my part. If it is a bug, someone needs a damn slapping
I’ll be happily working on a project, and everything is working as I expect. I’ll be transposing MIDI notes left and right. But then, after a while, Shift+ArrowKey suddenly is moving around the selection of Instruments/Tracks. It doesn’t matter if I have the MIDI editor open, or closed.
I also can’t seem to find anyone else with this problem, but I may well not be searching for the correct phrase or terms.
Good point. I’ll make sure to check that next time it happens. I did click and activate the midi note editor, like I normally do, many times. I also went back and forth and even tried Alt-Tab’ing around trying to see if that had any effect.
I just started working on the project this morning again, and everything is working as I expect it to. Right now I have a feeling this is something that happens after prolonged use of 10-12 hours, because it seem to happen at the end of my day.
Anyway, thanks very much for your reply, I appreciate it. I will keep an eye out for what happens throughout the day and if somehow the “focusing” of windows/area stop working again.
Indeed. Unfortunately, it does not seem to be as simple as that. I wish it was.
It is as if “Shift” stops working with the arrow keys after a long session, and selecting an “area”, no matter if it’s the editor, project window, or the mixer it doesn’t register the change. It should also be said, as I just remembered, that “Shift” still works for the horizontal scrolling of the project window, so it’s not a failure of my “Shift” key over all it seems.
Like I said I will keep an eye out for when this happens. I’m still working - and so is the shift+arrowkey transposition
Finally got the time, and an occurance of the problem happening at the same time. Here’s a gif of the issue happening. I am clearly activating the key editor, as the highlighted border can be seen switching to the key editor, and yet when I try to transpose with the arrow keys, it moves the selection of the tracks in the project window instead.
