Recall Zoom 1 ⌃⌥⌘1 – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Recall Zoom 1 ⌃⌥⌘1

Recalls Zoom setting 1. More practice is needed. Zoom and screensets are the collaborators of focus.

Zoom windows in Logic Pro – Apple Support

When you zoom in or out, the top-left (and selected) event or region remains in the visible area of the screen. If no selected region or event is visible, zooming is centered around the playhead. If the playhead isn’t visible, the current center of the window is retained.

  Individual Track Zoom Reset for All Tracks    ⌃⌥⇧⌘⌫

To be fair, this command is mentioned in the manual, but how to use Zoom effectively is no longer described in the documentation. The behavior of Zoom isn’t necessarily clear, and can appear to be almost magical in its behavior.

Another reminder to go read Chapter 4 of the Logic Pro 9 manual…

 Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Zooming the Working Area

While zooming, the top-left (and selected) event or region is kept in the visible area of the screen. In other words, the first selected region or event is retained in the zoomed window. If no selected region or event is visible, zooming is centered around the playhead. If the playhead isn’t visible, the current center of the window is retained.

 

Zoom to fit Locators, store Navigation Snapshot ⌃⇧Z – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

  Zoom to fit Locators, store Navigation Snapshot    ⌃⇧Z

It’s like breadcrumbs – follow a path backwards and forwards at levels of zoom for task focus.

When our screens graduated from 1024×768 lots of the zooming for focus became less necessary. Unfortunately we have lost the documentation and the lore about really using the Logic displays to help with our tasks. The entire section of the manual “Customizing Your Window Setup” got lost between version 9 and version 10.

Now we add chapter 4 as required reading along with chapter 8 (Basic Operations) which ideally would be done way early in the process of learning to use Logic.

I think I would be more inclined to zoom to fit both horizontally and vertically…

You can set, and recall, up to 30 zoom level and scroll bar positions for each window. These allow you to navigate through a number of window zoom levels and scroll bar positions, making repetitive editing tasks much faster.

Most of the zoom and store commands are not mapped. It is a simple matter to adjust the zoom and use the Store Navigation Snapshot command.

I strongly recommend that you read the Logic Pro 9 manual introductory material to gain a proper understanding of what the tool can do. The commands and workflow are all there in Logic Pro X, but the description and discussion of things like Zoom were yanked from the Logic Pro X manual. Did the bits weigh too much for shipping?

You can store three different zoom settings for each window using the Save as Zoom 1–3 key commands. Use the Recall Zoom 1–3 key commands to recall your zoomed settings. These commands only apply to the active window or window area.

Zoom Window ⌃⌘M – Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day

Logic Pro X keyboard command of the day. #LogicProX @StudioIntern1

  Zoom Window    ⌃⌘M

This is the “traditional” Macintosh window zoom command. Resize the current window to fill the screen leaving room for the menubar and the Dock. The command exists in the menus (handy that) and can be accomplished by clicking on the rightmost button in the window title bar – the green button in normal color displays.

Toggles between the current size of the window and full screen.

There are lots of zoom settings and commands. Combining these with screensets you can create very comfortable (and fast) workflows.
