Accessing mouse tools in X

In 9, I used to hit ESC to bring up the menu to select the scissor tool, glue tool, fade tool, pointer, pencil, etc.

In X, hitting ESC doesn't give me anything. I've been going up just below the transport bar and hitting the pull down icons for those tools. What is the new hot key for that fly out menu off of the cursor?

It is just simply 'T' as T for Tools! I had to look up the Key Commands for that one too!

If you're using the default key commands, it's T. If you imported your old commands from Logic 9, it's still Escape.

You can export your old L9 key commands and then re-import them into Lx so either way you should be able to get what you're use to using

Esc working fine here, also right mouse click brings it up.

Man, this took me a while to figure out.
Especially since the Quick Help window said to press esc twice to return to the pointer tool. Looks like they missed this in the Quick Help documentation!
I did a fresh install of Logic X on a brand new MacBook Air.

Now that I have that sorted out, along with the narrow button in the mixer, and the checkbox to import Space Designer IR's when importing an LP9 project, I've completely migrated to LPX.

I'll give it until the end of August to be safe, but barring any fatal bugs, I'll be uninstalling LP9 and not looking back. Really enjoying the LPX experience at this point.

Is there any reason that Esc is not superior to T? It seems to comfortable since the hand is resting there naturally at the side of the keyboard.. Ergonomically, T just can't compare.. why the heck would they opt to change that as the default, I'm wondering..

that desicion seems to be based purely on the similar letter concept - but that is also not cosistant thru out logic.
you see c for cycle, r for record, o for loops because they are "round", x for the miXer, l for the lists and so on with just so much letters and symbols available. some of them are "logic" others not so much, but the good part is that you can set almost any key command to whatever key you see fit.

peace, rez
