Confusion about Scrolling in the Tracks Area

Tue Oct 22, 2019 7:35 pm

In Logic Pro 10.4.7, I'm confused about scrolling left and right in the tracks area (so you can see regions that are before or beyond your view). I have a trackpad and simply slide my fingers left and right, but my students have a regular mouse. I don't see a way to scroll left a right. The manual says "To scroll horizontally, drag the horizontal scroll bar in the Tracks area menu bar." But I don't see a scroll bar. Do I have to click and show it? Any advice?

there's also a modifier key that allows you to scroll vertically with a normal scrollwheel.

shift or cmd or something common

Thank you and thank you. With a scrollwheel, you can use Shift for horizontal scrolling and Option for vertical zooming. Cool!

With a Magic Mouse you can scroll by sliding finger over top of mouse. Might have to enable scrolling in mouse settings.
