logic zoom question

what key command would I replace to set up a zoom at cursor in logic? what I want to do is set it up so "r" and "t" zoom in and out of the waveform at the cursor, just like in pro tools. I've looked in the key mapping menu and see lots of zoom things but haven't been able to make this one happen.

as it stands I usually have the zoom tool as my alternate tool and it's fine for zooming in and out, and I'm used to it, but i go back and forth between logic and PT depending on where I'm working, and I do prefer the r and t method for zooming.

thanks for any help!

Try option + scrollwheel for an alternate (pimpin'er, IMHO) method. Not sure about the original question, sorry.

Just change "Zoom Horizontal Out" or "In" to R and T, respectively. They're the first things that come up under "Various windows".

the above will essentially do what you want.

...........

most of my key commands are non standard.

I still use V7 but much should still apply.

the (•) means the functions are only possible as key commands and not menu items.

in the sample editor I often make a selection on very long audio and use

-------- Sample Edit Window --------
op [ ------------- •Go to Selection Start
op ] -------------• Go to Selection End




I use these settings for the arrange page. the first 4 are the same in the sample editor.

-------- Various Windows --------
ct Down Arrow key ------ Zoom Horizontal Out --- (in your case) t
ct Up Arrow key ---------- Zoom Horizontal In --- (in your case) r
ct Left Arrow key --------- Zoom Vertical Out
ct Right Arrow key ------- Zoom Vertical In

These are the 3 standard zoom magnification key commands.

sh Home --------------------- •Recall Zoom 1
sh Page Up ----------------- •Recall Zoom 2
sh Page Down ------------- •Recall Zoom 3
sh ct Home -------------------- •Save as Zoom 1
sh ct Page Up ---------------- •Save as Zoom 2
sh ct Page Down ------------ •Save as Zoom 3



-------- Arrange and Various Editors --------
F -------- -Scroll To Selection <------ handy for selecting a part in the locality and the pressing F.

because sometimes when the zoom in is high the page just moves somewhere else and it's impossible to get back.
the 3 main zoom recall settings help zoom to a more satisfactory degree when things go west.
keeping a part selected and hitting F - scroll to selection brings the part into view so you can pul back into a position.
