Hi, following on from my 2 part series on producing mouselessly in Live, I have a new trick. In Part 1 I showed how to use the mouse keys on a mac plus a better alternative. There is also mouse keys on pc by the way. The alternative is KeyRemap by Takayama Fumihiko. I asked him if he could help me add a draglock and he obliged. I've incorporated it into the custom private.xml file I made for scrolling on the keyboard without needing to turn mouse keys on. This draglock needs mouse keys on though, which makes sense.
So, in simple terms, you add the new .xml file and that's it. Press N to lock (start) a drag and . to release it.
This means you can use KeyRemap to drag notes, extend their lengths, drag files in from the browser and lots more, in Mouse Keys mode.
If you want more control and less wrist-ache, here is your solution. Easy ways to control Live 9
Scroll down (using ⌥▼ of course!) to section 4.
