    can somebody out there explain the logic behind Logic's way of handling keycommands now, please? In 8.01 everything was allright. I could press 'Q' after recording to quantize, now it depends which plug-in windows are open and mostly does nothing, but photograph me.

    just an example ... many times I have to click away a window or hide all plug-in window to get logic to accept the keycommand, instead of taking yet another picture.

    btw: where are those pics stored? I wanna see them. must be art.

    please explain this behaviour to me!

    thanks a lot!

    sincerely yours,

    welcome to my world...grrr... you just have to continually click back on the arrange window ( since thats where Q makes sense)..or whatever KC makes sense for that window ( ie the one that was last in focus) if you open a plug then obviously now thats in focus and Q doesnt make sense so you have to click back on the arrange.. it actually was the same in 8 but not with the camera flash. L9 puts a white border around the window in focus.
    youll get used to it.... eeeeevvvvveeennnnttttuuuuaaallllyyyyyyy.. but it will still be annoying

    I agree that Window Focus, in particuler with many Plugins, is not satisfactorily dealt with in Logic 9. However, the flash is actually a good thing - it replaces the warning beep which, heard through studio monitors or by musicians wearing headphones, can be most unpleasant. Having a silent optical warning such as the flash Apple came up with is a good idea.

    Now, if they could deal with the window focus issues so we didn't get flashed so much ...

    kind regards

    if the flash was a bit more subtle... or not white!

    What about an option like 'keep keyboard-focus on program window until plug-in window is selected'? or alternatively 'don't make plug-in windows keyboard focussed until clicked'.... can't find the right words for it, I give up.

    But you know what I mean, no?

    This really is kind of a nightmare for shortcut-friends like myself. It takes 4 steps (best case!), that previously only took 1 ..

    1 keycommand :angryfire:
    2 paranoid, because of another photo :eeek:
    3 click the arrange :brkwl:
    4 same keycommand again :errr:

    all the best,

    That summarizes it pretty well, Bernd. Have you sent that to Apple?

    kind regards
