Can't open Step Editor in 10.5.1

Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:26 am

Greetings all! I am getting back into recording and composition after a long hiatus--my last real experience using Logic was with Logic 9. I'm working on a project in Logic 10.5.1 and would like to use the Step Editor to draw in a recurring drum pattern and edit velocities. However, the "Open Step Editor" command is grayed out in the Window menu. I've enabled all the advanced editing tools in Preferences > Advanced Tools. Is there anything else I need to do to enable it? I can do what I need to do in the Step Sequencer, but I'd prefer the Step Editor if I can get it online. Thanks!
Current setup: 13" Macbook Pro with 2.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 and 8 gigs RAM running Catalina 10.15.6, external Dell monitor, Logic Pro 10.5.1, Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Generation

Do you have a MIDI region selected (not a step sequencer Pattern region, which is not a MIDI region) when you're trying to open a MIDI editor window?

Sorted! I didn't realize pattern regions were different. Thanks.

BTW: double clicking a region will open the appropriate editor. :)
