Keyboard shortcuts

Recommended Posts

I just thought I'd share my cheat sheets I made. First here is the official long list: If anyone here can admit to using all of them - cheers to you!

But for the rest of us, I made 2 sheets. The first one is the plain one key shortcuts I use the most. These are super important to know because these are the ones that are easy to toggle by accident.

The second is a edited list of the combination keystrokes I might use from time to time.

Yes, in the spirit of 'If it can go wrong it will go wrong'  the only one I would quibble with is S - split clips at now time. It's terribly easy to hit D for MultiDock, finger slips, and when I next look at the screen I wonder what on earth has gone on. I always like single key shortcuts to be non-destructive to avoid destruction.

What often happens to me is I'm tying to name a track and the dialog box looses focus. Now I've just told Cakewalk to 

guitar= 

G- Go to time

U- ?

I- Open inspector

T- Tools opens

A- ? 

R- Record  

 

If I was naming it  Vocals

V- Show Video pane ( this happens a lot! 

O- Open

C- Control Bar

A- ?

L- Lop mode

I've seen this behaviour sometimes too.

It seems to be something to do with the "Now Time" marker refreshing, and stealing focus every now and then. It happens so infrequently though, it's hard to tell.
