Moving 1 note 1 octave

Post by tomdifeo » Thu Sep 12, 2019 10:02 am

A rather easy question but i can't seem to select a note and use the up arrows to move the note up 1 octave. I can select the note but the up arrows with any combination of alt or ctrl don't do anything. Any thoughts?
Thanks
Tom

Selection tool. Select that note and type 9 (1 octave up) or 8 (1 octave down).

I've programmed my Q and Z keys for that. Very convenient for jumping the cursor (or note) when using Simple Entry and repitch.
