Do you use the empty space below the Tracks pane?

Empty space below the Tracks Pane?

  1. 1. How often do you click, drag, mousewheel or otherwise use the empty space below the Tracks pane in Track View?

    • Yes, I do it as part of my regular workflow (selecting, wheel zooming, setting Now Time, etc.)
      5
    • I avoid it or never see it because I use so many tracks or keep the Bus pane open
      1
    • Sometimes by accident

    • I didn't know that Cakewalk would do anything if I did

When I'm working in the Track View and have my tracks set up (using folders or just very few tracks) so that there's an empty space below them, I use my mouse in that area to zoom with the wheel, set Now Time, and make selections (the Smart Tool goes to Select down there).

The reason is that it's a guaranteed "safe" place to click, with few consequences if my finger slips. I don't have to be concerned with accidentally focusing or selecting  a track or muting a clip or any of the things that might happen if I clicked in the wrong place in a track.

How about you?

(I'm curious, and I've never created a poll before, so here it is)

Thanks for participating.

I can't edit the thing, so if you use it "sometimes," "occasionally," or "every so often" please vote "Yes." That's "regularly" enough. 😎

I'm trying to get a feel for whether behaviors when clicking and dragging in that space are important to people other than me, and also if anyone votes any of the 3 options other than "Yes" I'll be asking how they perform certain operations that I often do down in that area. I might find out better ways to do what I'm doing.

I often click on blank spaces for the same reason, not necessarily that particular space, but yes I do this sometimes.
