"S" to fold track heights - Can I undo it?

Post by sadfay » Thu Aug 27, 2020 6:46 pm

I constantly save in Ableton (cmd+S). It's like a nervous twitch, but it's harmless and it gives me a sense of security when I do complex runs of edits etc.

However, quite often (more than I care to admit) I accidentally press the "s" key instead of cmd+s, which folds all my tracks away to their most compact heights.

GAH!! I hate this!
Is there a way to undo this?

Can I suggest pressing "s" again would be a great way to undo it?

So you press once to fold, then press again to unfold to previous state / height.

And in the meantime is there another quick way to get my track heights back?

Try "H". It's mapped to the Optimize Arrange Heights and works as a toggle. Also an 'H' button near the upper right.
