Just for right handed people???

Post by yentzee » Mon Jul 30, 2018 6:17 am

Hi,
as I am trying to learn the hotkeys I am wondering why the alt key on the left makes tracks groups etc fold when pressed and klicken on with the mouse and the right alt key doesn't. I am left handed and this is really inconvienient.

Depending on keyboard and OS locale it may be an AltGr key, so not the same.

I was tempted to suggest looking for a lefthanded keyboard, but they only seem to shift the num block to the left.
