Arrangement view does not focus/scroll to selected track

Post by YannickBisson » Tue Oct 15, 2019 2:17 am

Hi,

In Arrangement view, If I select a track with Push, or any controller like Qcon, Behringer, Faderport, Akai, or any midi Controller with a Midi CC mapped to select a track, Live doesn’t move /scroll the screen at all to show and put the focus to the selected track.

So It gets REALLY frustrating to select a track with the Push, then fetch the mouse and scroll to that selected track. Total workflow killer. But what is more frustrating, is that it works when in Session view....

Any one here managed to do a workaround? is any Max device doing that?


Thanks!

I've been waiting for this to be addressed for 10 years personally when I noted the same behaviour when I first got my MCU.

No workaround I am aware of but maybe a bug report could help get this addressed (if I remember)

I know this is an old post but thought I'd share is it may help someone.

The best workaround I can found for now is to simulate arrow key presses in max for live using this http://www.11olsen.de/code/max-objects/11strokes
