This specific key command has been removed, it only worked as long as the Tempo was set to “Fixed”, not “Track”, not a good example in terms of consistency. For entering a Tempo in Fixed mode, there are several other ways possible. Double click with mouse to enter values, or by mouse wheel up/down, left-click and drag. Btw, “Track” is the default mode which means the key command never worked out-of-the-box.
Once upon a time, you were able to increase or decrease the tempo via up/down arrows. That functionality was removed back in what? SX2? SX3? All that was left was the Input Tempo key command and now that’s gone. OK, I can understand changing the up/down key functions to accommodate a more useful activity (Track/Part selection) or even de-assigning the Tempo Input as a defaulted key command…but did it have to removed entirely from the Key Commands list at all?
To me, the issue of “consistency” is irrelevant if a command like Input Tempo is defaulted unassigned in the list. Isn’t the whole idea of Key Commands about user customization? Wouldn’t leaving these sort of things unassigned, yet available in the list, better serve users who wishes to create a work flow that suits their particular needs?
