Split at grid. And join, too?

Split at grid is very useful when tracking MIDI. What would be even nicer is to be able to join at grid, too.

Thank you for the feature request.

In disagreement click on the thumbs down.

The developers pay close attention to those that are voted on the most. 

You are allowed one vote. 

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue. 

Please click on one or the other.

You can sort of do that now.

If you have Snap to Grid turned on, and double-click on the grid line, I believe it will split (it does in audio tracks, I haven't tried on a Midi track).

Note that if Snap to Grid isn't turned on, you can temporarily toggle it via the Shift key, rather than turning it on/off.

Hopefully that helps a little.

Thanks, donaldbaarns. I already know how to split events. Perhaps I should have been more specific. I can set a grid size, say 1/16 notes, then right-click one or more selected MIDI notes, select Split at Grid, and that note will be split into 1/16 notes. What I would also like to be able to do is to set my grid size to, say, 1/4 notes, and join those 1/16 notes to 1/4 notes.

It would work if there were a Split/Join at Grid function which converted selected notes into notes of the specified grid size. So I could draw a bar-long note, set the grid to 1/16, Split/Join to 16 notes at 1/16, then set the grid size to 1/4 and Split/Join to 4 notes at 1/4. Does this all make more sense?

Thanks for explaining! I didn't understand what you're trying to do, so all good. Now we'll see if that feature would be helpful for others.

I'm not qualified to vote it up/down since I don't do it enough to know the value of that.

Your clarification is very helpful, since now I understand what you're asking for, and others who have the same issue can vote for this too.
