Is there anyway I can fill down in library columns?

Thanks

Hi,

You mean automatically fill a column with an Instrument name or Style name or whatever? One thing I do is copy the text and then press the down arrow and then Ctrl-V repeatedly. You can fill a column pretty quickly that way.

Or did you mean something else?

Hi Greg

Yep, that is exactly what I mean and I have been doing it the way you describe, but it is tedious when you have thousands of samples you want to add attributes too. Can't you just add a fill down option to the software?

Hi,

Yes, it would be nice to be able to paste to multiple slots. I don't know how useful a column fill would be because you'd often have other styles or instruments somewhere in the column and it would be easy to overwrite things.

Not really because you can choose to view your columns based upon prior filters. For example lets say you have 100 samples and fifty of them are called drum*** then all you do is filter on drum*** then you could mass apply other edits such as naming the instrument or assigning a song kit etc etc...
