Go to Marker Number 1 – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Go to Marker Number 1

Move the playhead to Marker 1 and update the display placing Marker 1 at the left edge.

I guess marker numbers might make sense if someone has made a list of markers, by number, that refer to positions within the project, maybe scenes in a video or sections of long orchestral work. I use markers to split live recordings on song-start boundaries, but don’t normally refer to them by number.

As I have said before I removed all of the ‘Go to Marker Number n’ key commands to free up my keyboard for other things. If I need to go to by number I can simply enter ⌥/ and type in the number that I want to use.

On the control surface I just use the backward/forward buttons to move to the marker of choice.

The problem really is that markers are always sequential from the beginning of the project. If I have 8 markers and I add one between 6 and 7 the location of marker 8 changes. I think this requires a formal definition of markers for the project that don’t get changed. Maybe a punch list?
