Logic Pro 9 All parameters equal key combo?

This has been driving me nuts for a while now. Old versions of Logic allowed me to select several notes, then if I changed one note's parameters (velocity, length, whatever) and held Shift-Option while I hit Return, all the selected notes would take on the same parameter value.

Since LP8 I think, this has stopped working, and now I just get all the selected notes changing relative to the changed note, or not changing at all.

Is there a new, different key combination to allow me to make all notes take on the same parameter, or is that feature gone? Thanks for any help!

Thanks Pete, I'll really have to puzzle it out then, as the aberration appears on both my systems. I can't think what I've done to make it stop working - maybe when I was trying (unsuccessfully) to import my old key commands from a Prefs file, I've buggered up the command somehow...

AFAIK, this isn't in the key command preferences, but you could try trashing preferences anyway. You can always get them back (just move the pref files temporarily out of the user library/preference folder)

Hi Sonny,

You mention option + shift + return. You don't need to use the return key. Option + Shift + dragging the parameter values should do it. Maybe it's your inclusion of the return key that is hampering your efforts?
 
Another thing: I sometimes notice the key commands have changed to something else. It and go into your key commands and either reinitialize them or try one of the new presets.

Thinking about this, I don't think it is or has ever been a key command, rather it's part of the general editing functions.

The manual:

To assign the same velocity value to all selected notes
μ Hold down Option-Shift while dragging one of the notes with the Velocity tool.
If it was a key command, I think the manual would say so, and also it would be freely assignable.

The fact that you must also slide the mouse implies it's a different kind of thing to your regular key command.
