move multiple tracks at once in arrange window

    In ProTools, you can grab multiple tracks and move them up or down in the arrange window simultaneously (not to be confused with regions which reside on the tracks). You can not do this in Logic Pro, it would seem. You are forced to move them one at a time, which is quite a slow chore if you have to move 5 to 10 or more tracks to a different vertical location.

    I agree; it regularly bothers me that I can't drag multiple tracks. Logic is well overdue for this feature. And I'm still in 7. Distressing that it didn't appear in v.8 (which is where I assume alienimplant is discussing its lack).

    Excellent idea. One should also be able to delete multiple tracks at once (especially useful with the tracks left over after packing a Folder, for example).

    Just to clarify, do you mean tracks and the order they appear in the arrange window, or do you mean regions? I have Logic 7 and I drag multiple regions from several different tracks around all the time. You can either drag the cursor over several regions and highlight them, or you can select them one at a time by clicking on the tracks while holding down the shift key. If you move one of the selected regions, they will all move with it.

    You can also delete multiple regions the same way. Select as many regions as you want to delete and press the delete key.

    If you mean moving the whole track up and down in the arrange window, then you are right, I have only been able to do it one track at a time.

    We all definitely meant Tracks, not regions. :)

    Yes and It's very tired. Imagine a 100+ tracks trying to arrange one by one. A total mess..:rolleyes:
    We need this feauture since long time ago.

    Yep, that's the goal. It isn't possible to move more than one at a time. We want this feature added.

    Sorry, if I had of read the original post more carefully I would have understood. Yes, it would be nice to grab say your whole string section and move it up or down in the arrange window.

    OMG yes. This drives me crazy! I have to say - in the old days things like this would be fixed immediately as it always felt like the code guys were going home and making songs on Logic and immediately realizing all these little things that mess up one's work flow. Now we have to wait a year for things like this to get taken care of....:)

    Yes, i miss those good old days too when you didn't have to wait 6 months for repairs of blatant bugs.

    When Michael Haydn was taking care of SoundDiver (R.I.P.) and Emagic was still an entity unto itself, I remember him on at least one occasion fixing a bug on a module and posting the update...

    ...wait for it...

    ...the same day I reported the bug!

    Why doesn't the arrange window menu track>delete unused work for you in this situation?
