Annoying Cursor Problem :)

Post by RM20 » Tue May 28, 2019 11:12 pm

Hi everyone. I'm having one of those "first world problems" that is driving me batty :lol: Hoping someone can help me before all the hair on my head goes gray or falls out.

While editing my audio clips, I normally can hold my mouse over any part of the edge of the clip to extend or shorten it. Suddenly, I can only do those functions when Im at the very top of the clips, where that bar is that displays the title. Anyone know how to get it back to the way it was?

Are you in Automation view? Press A, does that fix it?

Live 9 and earlier was always like this, but Live 10.0 changed it so that the 'grab' area was larger.
This has been reverted in the new 10.1, so the grab area has shrank back to the title bar area.
As a long-time user i never really got used to the larger area, but for users who came to Live at 10.0, this could prove to be annoying.
