  Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Note Value

The word “optimal” cannot be found in the Logic Pro X documentation except in the keyboard shortcut reference section. Literally no discussion of the command located – “Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Bar”, and no mention at all of the command of the day.

Little to no reference found on the web.

Let’s check Logic Pro 9 help file…bingo

Our command used to be called “Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Denominator” which only makes sense if you treat your music as if it had a time signature – what a relic.

There is an entire section of the “old” manual that doesn’t exist in Logic Pro X documentation. I have extracted that and saved a copy here…

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Resizing Regions

 

The MIDI > Set Optimal Region Sizes Rounded by Bar command (or the corresponding key command, default assignment:  Shift-Command-B) reduces or increases the length of a selected MIDI region, making it just large enough to contain the events (or regions, if a folder) within it. The region borders are rounded to the nearest bar.
