There is barely any professional software where you can't create your own shortcuts. Live only gives the option to assign a key to a visible element of the GUI which is pretty limiting in my opinion.

It would be nice to make your own shortcuts like in any other software, maybe even shortcut chains like it is possible in Reaper. I know there is software for that but the shortcuts can be globally only and only utilize the predefined shorcuts from Live.

Being able to bypass a plugin, or switch to "Plugin 3" and hide it with the keyboard. All these things are very tedious with the mouse.

It is kind of my idea yeah. I wrote a comment.

Can't believe only 20 people so far want to create their own shortcuts :/

21 now. Shortcut sequences would be very nice, combining multiple actions in one keystroke, or maybe even incorporating mouse actions. It would be nice to make a shortcut to for example fill up a bar with 16th notes, or select part of an automation line and with one click have it go from 0 to default within the selected time.

Yes the possibilities are limitless if you have access to Live's functions without programming Python.

I fully agree, especially I find the -/+ shortcut for zooming in/out quite annoying. Would be better to use key letters you can easily access with your left hand (as R and T like in Pro Tools)

Ctrl alt p was annoying me. The best work around I could find is to customize a button on my mouse. Some Logitech products are customizable.

Agree. I found just assigning the mouse button under my thumb to CTRL has save me an enormous amount of time.

YES I agree this is so important! Especially being able to re-map the disable key from "0" to something more common with other DAWs. It can be very frustrating switching between DAWs and being forced to use Ableton's fixed shortcuts.

I'm terribly late to the party here but yes i agree, being able to edit shortcuts or create new ones would be a massive improvement.

Doesn't key mapping accomplish this? https://patches.zone/key-mapping-in-abl ... e-tutorial

The original poster cited the existing key-mapping as a limitation. What's being discussed is more of an in-depth modification. Example: you can right-click on a midi or audio clip and 'crop clip,' however as there is no existing selectable hotkey or shortcut, you can't create or modify one, so you are stuck using your mouse. Also more complex 'macros' can't be created to carry out multiple string commands. As a work-around, I'm looking for a third-party app that will work reliably within Ableton. If anyone finds one, it would be nice to hear from you.

I totally agree, and "crop" is actually one of the things I miss most when working.

I've tried some third-party-apps and tried making short-cuts on gaming-mouses etc, but somehow things seems to end up with problems of some sort. I may test this again now.
