cursor follows time line

Post by converted » Tue Mar 01, 2011 3:50 pm

Is there a way to get the scroll cursor to update the page / screen whilse playing in in arrange view?

So when it moves to the end of the page it updates to the next page like a clasic sequencer would?

On the top of the screen next to the transport (play,stop,rec buttons) there is a button with an arrow pointing to the right. Click it on. Voila!

Also Ctrl-F works too

Your welcome

Nope not that I know of. I think because it takes a bit of processing to do it defaults to off.

Use that keystroke

this trick doesn't work for me, I am in session view in live lite, do you have any ideas what to do? - perhaps it doesn't work because this is 11 years later .... 8O

Activating Follow is ctrl+shift+F nowadays, or the button in top bar with an arrow pointing right (kinda like "➡--")

You can toggle the Follow behavior between Scroll and Page in Preferences > Look Feel > Follow Behavior..
