if you make a triple click you aggregate both commands into one.
That's a perfectly fine way to look at it, but nevertheless the programmer has made a decision to detect a triple-click, and respond with a certain action. As to why he did this, or whether it was a good idea to this, those are separate issues. But by observation we can notice that he did this.
if your Editing area is closed in the Arrange area and you triple click a MIDI region, you'll open and close the Piano Roll
Thanks, that's very interesting, I never noticed that (and I see he does the corresponding thing with audio regions, too). But that's definitely another instance of the programmer making a decision to detect a triple-click.
And I guess I shouldn't necessarily assume the programmer made a decision. It could be a bug, i.e., something he did without realizing he was doing it.
I don't interpret it as a new "Peak inside MIDI region using Piano Roll then close it" triple-click key command. It's simply a double-click to open the region in the Piano Roll, a double-click to close the Piano Roll. Here again, both commands exist on their own.
But a double-click to open the region in the Piano Roll followed by a double-click to close the Piano Roll really and truly consist of a total of four clicks. What's interesting is that he responds to a double-click followed by a double-click, but he also responds to a triple-click. The two actions are different, even though the result is the same.
You're correct that it would be silly to have a command for "Peak inside MIDI region using Piano Roll then close it." But that's really and truly what the programmer did. Why? Probably it's a bug and he didn't realize he was doing it.
I think there are most probably many more cases of triple-clicks being interpreted as series of two double-clicks in Logic and in general on Mac OS
Believe it or not, wiki has an article about triple-clicking
. I think normally it's not what we're seeing in Logic, i.e., an alternative to two double-clicks.
The B method really does seem to mechanically to be a triple click
Yes, it is. And you can prove it to yourself by varying the time between click #2 and click #3. If the interval is long, click #3 is ignored. If the interval is short, the dialog appears. By definition, this means that a triple-click is being detected.
click 3 times and you'll get the entire time code to highlight
That's a good example of something that's very common. You'll see that in the Finder, and you'll see it most word processors. Double-click selects a word, and triple-click selects the whole line. You'll see the same behavior editing any multi-word file (or folder) name in the Finder.
But this is fundamentally different than what we're seeing in Logic, because it's not an instance of a triple-click giving the same result as two double-clicks. In my opinion, that's a weird thing, and you're not going to see it in too many places outside of Logic. For that matter, I don't think we see it in too many places inside of Logic.
