Change the [Command] key default function to move files to cursor instead!

asked Apr 18, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by erikhusler (4,480 points)

In Pro Tools I was used to quickly move and copy Event Starts and Ends to the cursor. In Studio One the first is cumbersome, the other impossible - without serious time loss. But behold, I just discovered a super simple solution: Changing the Command key function! As now, when you press it while marking an Event it toggles the Event mute state. That's easily done otherwise.

If instead it would move the marked Event to the cursor it changes the game! Instead of endlessly activating/ deactivating "Cursor Follows Edit Position" back and forth - and having to be constantly aware of its state or you'll f-k up -  you'd just move files on the spot, with the added options to copy (duplicate) the Event to the new position (adding [alt]) and another command to move/ duplicate the Event End to the cursor (reversed cymbals, drops etc). Problem solved - nothing lost - But a sorely missed, massive improvement for Studio One and all users. I'd say it's a gamechanger.

Please make this a reality ASAP - It's such a massive workflow enhancement it deserves an update in its own right.
