#4 beat division keybindings


I tend to draw MIDI notes in the piano roll more than I record input via MIDI keyboard and I find having to move to the beat div menu, click its drop down, scroll to find the size of note I need then click to choose it a cumbersome procedure considering how often I change note length so my qtractor workflow would be considerably optimized if I could assign keyboard shortcuts (such as CTRL+0-9) to switch the current beat division without using the mouse.

Thanks Mr C!

PS You can close the pitch bend ticket now as I don't seem to be able to do it myself and it seems to work fine now.

    done. svn trunk rev.2978+ (aka. qtractor

    • The View/Snap menu is now listed as fully accessible actions, making each snap-per-beat setting assignable to a keyboard shortcut (aka. user key bindings)..

    Excellent news to see this getting implemented - you've just about made my week Rui but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working for me yet.

    I just tried the latest svn under Deb 7 amd64 and I can see the snap-per-beat settings are all bindable now, which is what I requested, so I have assigned a few of them shortcuts (like CTRL+0 for beat, CTRL+2 for 1/2 beat etc.) but none of them work. Is it working under suse?

      yes they work under opensuse, what else?

      ah wait, they don't :( ...

      let me try again :) ouch. it only seems to work only when View/Snap menu gets shown up at least once ... seriously, it's a joke. ;)

      will fix that asap :/

    Seems to be fine now so thanks again Rui - I'll be able to work much faster with qtractor MIDI editing thanks to this small addition!
