Arrange Window: Sorting Layers


Recommended Posts

Hey there---


first post on the LPH forum :)


I was fiddling around in Logic, and by complete luck realized that if you add ":" to a layer name, it will create a "folder" in the layer's list in the Arrange page.


For example, you could have

VSL: Woodwinds

VSL: Strings

VSL: Brass

Giga: Strings

Giga: Brass


... and, in the Arrange window, the layers will show up as two folders (VSL and Giga) and their subfolders (Woodwinds, Strings, Brass / Strings, Brass).


So, I messed around and found out that if you add an "-" at the start of a layer name, and add a basic object in thats same layer (like an blank instrument), then it will show as a separator (a big line) in the list of layers.


So, I was wondering if anyone knew - or where I could find - the complete list of triggers/keys that you can put in a layer's name to change the way it shows up in the Arrange page?


Thanks in advance,

well, what I'm trying to say is that in the Arrange page, when you hold on a track name, you can then see a the list of layers that exist in your environment.


By default, the layers are sorted by name and they all appear as a list.


As I pointed out, and as you said, if you add an ":" in the name, you can create folders and subfolders in that list.


As I also pointed out, if you add an "-" at the start of a layer's name (in the environment), the layer disappears from the list in the Arrang page, and instead it creates a separator, a line.


So, my questions was, where can I find the list of keys, besides ":" and "-", that act directly on the way layers show up in the Arrange page. There must be other modifier than ":" and "-" ...
