Logic Pro 9 Why do I get a flash of white when trying to beam or unbeam

#1
When I try to use shift b or shift u the screen flashes white but no beams are affected, the mouse drop down works but is this a known bug?

Also when I have a 2/4 time quantized to 16ths I can't get the 16ths to appear as second half of first and second quarter notes with down beat and second quarter beat as 16th rest? I will make some screen shots tomorrow and show you what I mean.

SOLVED, interpretation was on.

The white flash is to let you know that you are using a key command that doesn't do anything in that editor. So either this is a bug or your key commands have got changed. If you are doing the right command, as indicated in the edit menu ctrl B for beam and ctrl U for unbeam) then it's a bug, but it works fine for me in 9.1

Regarding the flash itself:
Apple decided to use the screen flash for notification because beeping is not very welcome in a studio. This was a good idea.

Further, the most common reason for that flash happening here is that I have the Mixer pane selected while I intended to do something in Arrange. The white highlight around the active pane was a good idea, but I still don't notice it on occasion when I'm concentrating on the song. I wouldn't mind being able to choose the highlight color and/or slightly dimming the non-active panes.

Thanks to all who replied,it is not only helpful but kind. I must have changed that key command but will restore it now. I fear I concentrate more on what I hear than is good for me.Once more Thanks all!!
