Logic X Does this keyboard shortcut exist?

    I have tried without success to find a keyboard shortcut that will take me from an edit page back to the arrange page (typically from piano roll, though in theory from any edit page).
    If anyone is aware of one could they please enlighten!

    Have you tried command-1 and/or a locked screen set? Both should address what you are looking to do....

    Sorry...not clear what you mean...

    Do you mean the Edit Window as a separate window?

    In any case, here's a suggestion:
    Logic has so many possibilities that if you constantly open and close or rearrange windows, you'll go nuts.

    The secret weapon is Screensets.

    Set up your screen as you'd like to work in general. Then open a new screenset (or copy the current one) and make a new arrangement of windows for whatever different purpose you require. Continue until you have all the screensets you need.

    Screenset 1 might be your Main window showing the mixer below.
    Screenset 2 might be the same, but with score below.
    Screenset 3 might be a small main window at the bottom, with a large separate score window taking up most of the screen.
    Screenset 4 might be all your Environment layers open in different windows.
    etc etc etc

    Screensets are easily recalled with the number keys and this way of working will definitely speed up your workflow.

    ... or, if you are using the key command (default is P) to show the piano roll, just use the same key command to hide it.

    P, and similar (N, E, and W among others) are a show/hide toggle.
    Each window can be resized differently and Logic will remember for that project.
    Quick and easy.

    What if you want to see velocity colors in the piano roll when editing regions, but need to see region colors when combining regions from different tracks? You could select the piano roll local view menu item for this. But screensets are a better solution. Screenset 1- velocity colors, #2- region colors. The piano roll can be resized differently in each.

    Screensets evolve based on the needs of what you're doing. Think about the editing, arranging, and mixing tasks you do. Set up a range of useful features in each one to reduce the amount of mouse-clicking.
