Maximizing midi-editor

Post by Banjostar » Sat May 29, 2021 12:13 am

Is there a shortcut for maximizing / minimizing the midi-editor? It's making me nuts having to use the mouse.

Thank you for your answer, but that just undocks it.

No there's no shortcut key for that. That was in a suggestion thread at some point. The list of Keyboard shorts cuts starts on page 375 of the manual.

Nice idea to use windows menu shortcuts to hide and show the window.

You can take it a step further and make an AutoHotkey script:
F1::
Send, !v
Sleep 10
Send, h
return
In this script for example, pressing F1 will minimize/maximize the panel.

Thank you!

I'm a bit surprised at the lack of shortcuts to be honest. I'm hoping for more in the future.

I agree, seems like a basic and simple thing to implement, hope they do it in V10

I agree with Banjostar. I also maximize and minimize the midi-editor many times, and it would be nice if it could also be done by pressing just one key, probably function keys like F1, F2, etc.

I agree as well, but in the meantine, this can be done with a little software called AutoHotkey, i can share my script if you want, it's very easy to install and set.

Shortcuts for switching between mixer and midi-editor. And for resizing tracks. And for quantize, velocity and length :)

Well, in the meantime Acoustica does not incorporate these types of shortcuts, if just pressing one key can be maximize and minimize the midi editor, if you share me the script I can try it, why not? :)

Try this AutoHotKey script:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1S4KM-b ... sp=sharing

F1 to close all windows
F2 to hide/show details area

There are a lot more shortcuts in this script, like middle mouse key to switch between tools, but I disabled them.
If you open the script in a text editor, you can enable back whatever functions/shortcuts you want by removing the ";" signs.

Thanks!
So if I have not misunderstood, to use this script I have to use the Autohotkey soft. So I'm going to download this software and I'll try it to see how it works.
