Option for piano roll when alt pressed and inserting note with mouse allow move note also left and right instead of resizing it before mouse released.

Recommended Posts

Note insertion option
to changing behaviour when inserting note in piano roll by pressing alt
and clicking mouse when mouse not released allow moving inserted note not only
vertical direction but also horizontal ditrection instead of resizing it. Maybe some option in
prefferences where is possible to change this default behaviour of smart tool  in piano roll  notes insertion when
ALT pressed.

I get it. Changing the note size by moving the mouse left or right when pressing Alt key on the keyboard. It would be a nice improvement. I liked it.

Currently, the functions supplied by the smart tool may be altered the hot spots and key combinations bound to the functions cannot.

Why Steve? Can't we add a function to Shift+Alt+Mouse Move for instance, if ALt+Mouse Move function is not possible? It seems nothing doing different in PRV with Shift+Alt combination with the Smart Tool. I mean it seems available.

My post concerns what is available within the program itself, the scope of this forum.

Clip hot spots and smart tool bindings are hard coded.

The smart tool is not in the keyboard shortcuts area drop down in preferences.

Maybe is possible to add option into prefferences whn i pressing alt and inserting note i can move also right and left instead of risizing note and resize note i can when i released mouse. for example when i fastly inserting 1/16 notes i don't need resize them but instantly move it up or down or left or right. before i releasing mouse. Posibble simple scenarios when need input notes fast and resizing no matters but positioning matters fast.

Steve we were talking about changing the note sizes with the Alt key in PRV. This talk is not about Clips. Are they related?

Of course. When talking to you I found a way to achieve it in Cakefolk™ and said it with the excitement.

Sure. But developers can add some new features to the Smart Tool. Can't they?

Note hot spots are hard coded too.

See the documentation linked above.

Of course, BandLab owns the source code and may modify it as they see fit.

Even in the context of this forum, it is difficult to tell in some posts if one is asking "does a feature exist" or "could a feature be added."

Generally when I post in this area, I post about existing features and how they work hence the links to the documentation.

Idea is pretty simple when i using smart tool and fastly need insert one sized notes i need positioning note not resising it. Now i press alt and i need release mouse and click again on note to move it left or right direction  but it's extra step in scenarious where positioning matters not note size

Now I can move inserted note anywhere without resizing it when holding the Alt key. 

You can select the note size at first from this menu:

So you don't need to resize it and move the note anywhere. Is it works for you?

Yes but when i clicking 1/16 note and inserting it i need positioning it left or rigt instead of resizing it : ) In simple words for example pencil tool when holding alt not drawing series of repetive notes but allows move note before i release mouse
