Logic Lock SMPTE Position Shortcut?

Ok, Lock SMPTE Region Position is great so that regions aren't moved after all the effort that's gone into it.

But what is the keyboard shortcut? For the life of me I can't read it, and the Key Commands dialog box is just as cryptic and the manual just says "Use the Lock SMPTE Position Shortcut Key".

It's a sort of arrow pointing up and down...


Anyone know what it actually is?

you could just create your own key command for the item. Or in logic 9 you can customize the toolbar and add lock region smpte position.

I could. But it just seems bizarre...
It's kind of annoying. I think I will have to use it in the toolbar.

Looks like perhaps the character map for your current keyboard layout is messed up....or the key definition is set to some bizarre value. I think changing it in Key Commands is the easiest option, Logic tells you if something you try to set is already in use by another command.

FINALLY A CONCRETE ANSWER!!!!

THANK YOU!

I'm on an MBP so I don't have any numlock. It's good to finally understand. Thanks very much. It look like I have to reset it anyway!

Thanks.

It's a neat function and it also works in the event list editor.

Seriously overlooked. Great for SFX to video as well and making sure well played rhythm sections, when necessary, can be copied and pasted and they'll stay where they are (I don't get work with the most fluid of bands...).

I switched my key command to Ctrl-L for SMPTE lock and Shift-Ctrl-L for unlock... much more intuitive.

Forget what it replaced. Probably 'latch' mode in automation. Need that way less...

Now I just wish Logic would let you SMPTE lock movie clips. 'Twould be 'logical', no?
