Set Region Anchor to Playhead – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Set Region Anchor to Playhead

It is difficult to find a definition of “region anchor”. The simplest visible sign is the anchor indicator that you see in the Project Audio Browser. Typically a region anchor is at the start position of the region, but it can be moved.

The anchor can be used when regions are moved. If I set the region anchor to the middle of a region I can move the region to a different location typically placing the region anchor position at the playhead position.

You can slip regions, which moves the content of the region left or right by the nudge value without moving the boundaries of the region.
