I have used this function quite a lot without problems. I can even use the ENTER key. Typing "-0.1" or "0.5" or whatever and pressing ENTER will make it stick. Typing and then placing the mouse outside the box also works fine.
I have Swedish keyboard layout by the way.

Hi,

I don't know what would be different about the UK keyboard in that respect. Can you post a screenshot of what it looks like before you hit enter?

Silly question but make sure you enter + or - and zero.number. Also the track needs to be set to transpose. :D

Screenshot Greg...I can point mouse anywhere and click - it reverts to 0.0; same as if I hit 'enter'
Works fine with the up or down arrows to move in semi-tomes, but not fractions thereof.

Tom, makes no difference starting with + or -

Hi,

Thank you, the screenshot provides the answer. Try it on an audio clip, not a MIDI clip. There's no way to fractionally transpose MIDI.

So for the original poster:
1. Right-click to the left of the track to convert it to an audio track.
2. Fractionally transpose the MIDI.

Ah yes - but OP was referring to Pianissimo; and therein lies the answer!
Convert Pianissimo track to audio :lol:

I'm an Old Fart - and I'm sticking to my story!!! :D


and the fact that Greg beat me to it, only proves it :mrgreen:

Ack!
Ive been fiddling and....

Yep, it was working every time.
On an audio track.
Type in .3 enter. Works.
Type in 0.3 enter, works.
Type in -.3 or -0.3.... Works.

The frustrating thing is the feeling of deja-vu when the solution is revealed.
As the feeling of having been through this conversation and puzzle-solving before...

Stupid MIDI! :roll:
Stay in tune, Mark

I also can't get any micro pitch changes to register, only full half steps

Hi,

Bounce it to audio first. Right-click to the left of the track and select Mix to New Audio Track, then adjust the newly-created audio clip.
