Logic 9 Moving MIDI events in Piano Roll

    Is there a way in Piano Roll to move midi notes to another note on the keyboard map without dragging them?

    Say I have a hi-hat pattern and I want to change to different one. Dragging them has the risk of shifting them in time (easy to avoid if you are doing dance music and events fall into bars) but not easy if the events are "in the cracks". I want to be able to select all (control-A) and tell them where to go without dragging them, to avoid moving them horizontally.

    I hope the question is clear - if not, please let me know.

    TIA, Jay

    A solution is to be found here:

    preferences ->General->Edit

    check "Limit Dragging to one direction in:"

    I always have this switched on for Piano Roll, Score and Tracks.

    kind regards

    Just to add to Mark's reply: you can also temporarily toggle the status of this preference by holding down the SHIFT key when dragging. (I also always leave it on)
