Paste ⌘V – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Paste    ⌘V

Place the contents of the clipboard at the currently selected location. ‘Paste’ is mapped to the MCU combination of ALT/F3.

Cut and paste regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area – Apple Support

In Logic Pro, move the playhead to the point in the Tracks area where you want the region to start, then choose Edit > Paste (or press Command-V).

Mackie Control function keys in Logic Pro – Apple Support

The table outlines the function key controls and their functions:

  

Set Solo Tool – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Set Solo Tool

Simplest way to enter this command is to type ‘T’ ‘S’ on the keyboard.

I think there are some problems with soloing from the middle of a region. The display is wonky, and the transport LCD does not update properly.

Mute and solo regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area – Apple Support

The region plays in isolation from the pointer position until you release the mouse button.

 

Set Camera Tool – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Set Camera Tool

Chooses the Camera Tool. The pointer is changed to a camera icon. You can do various “screenshots” of a score (or sections of a score) as either PDF files (brings up a Save dialog) or on the clipboard.

Share a Logic Pro score – Apple Support

Choose one of the following Camera Tool settings in the Logic Pro > Preferences > Score pane:

Set Link View to Same Level – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Set Link View to Same Level

Show data (in the editor) that corresponds to the window with key focus. You can have multiple editor windows open. Not clear when I would want my editors to all show the same information, but that’s the default – content.

Link windows in a Logic Pro project – Apple Support

Same Level: When selected, the editor window always displays the same contents as the window with key focus, and updates whenever the window with key focus changes. For example, if the Score Editor has key focus, in Same Level Link mode, the Event List displays the same data as the Score Editor (numerically, of course).

 

Save As Control Bar and Display Defaults – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Save As Control Bar and Display Defaults

Saves the current control bar and display settings as the default. These settings are saved with a project, so you can revert to these settings by setting the display to default.

Control Bar and Display values can be set differently for every Main Window that is open in any screenset.

Some interesting displays can be created. A tall, narrow window with inspectors and track names?

Customize the Logic Pro control bar – Apple Support

The control bar offers a default set of buttons and other controls, providing commonly used options. In the center of the control bar is the LCD, which shows the playhead position and the project tempo, key, and time signature.

 

Select All ⌘A – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Select All ⌘A

Selects all of the “objects” in the currently focused display. All the events. All the regions. Almost all of the channel strips.

Tracks have an entire set of selection commands, with a special case “All” menu item.

Select tracks in Logic Pro – Apple Support

Some track operations, such as duplicating tracks or assigning tracks to a different channel strip, require that you first select the track or tracks.

Channel strips have some different behaviors as well. MIDI channel strips don’t actually contain things, they are simply parameter setting tools.

As long-time Mac user I expect ‘Select All’ to select everything. Clearly in the case of Logic Pro that expectation is unfounded. I must select carefully.
