long notes lose editing function in piano roll

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

When I drag out a really long note in piano roll (say, more than 100 bars) the edit functions disappear and I just get a selection icon, but, the resize and move icons are no longer available to me. So, this means, when I create a long midi drone note I can't edit its length.  It's driving me crazy: anybody know a fix? Hopefully it's not a bug and I'm doing something wrong.

cheers,

Adam

Hi Adam,
Thanks for reporting this. I've been able to reproduce the problem, and we'll try to fix it for the next release.

This issue has been an ongoing problem for me, too.  The only way I can graphically adjust the length of a long note at all is to zoom way out, but then I can't adjust it with the precision I need.  It's still happening in version 2020.11 (Build 088, 64 bit).

I can adjust the length using the Note Properties dialog, but then I have to calculate what the length should be.  That approach would be okay for a note or two once in a while, but I have a lot of these notes.

I found a workaround!

1.  Add a new short temporary note that ends at the same time as the Very Long Note. 
2.  Select both notes, and then you can drag their ends to lengthen or shorten them.  
3.  Delete the temporary note.

Not a perfect solution, but it beats the currently available alternatives.

Creative thinking!

The problem seems to appear for me at a particular indeterminate zoom level and/or PRV screen/scroll position.

Happy to see it's getting worked on!
