Logic Pro X - Duplicate Events macro.

Postby jontah » Wed Jul 31, 2013 7:27 am

Weird, I did register on this site as well as put a topic/post about this, but it is not disappeared? together with my members account.

Oh well, I'll try again then.

I want to be able to duplicate events inside of Logic with just one shortcut command (CMD+D). Right now it's CMD+R and a dialog pops up where I have to type in how many times I want to repeat the region or note and then I have to confirm it.

I want QuicKeys to do that for me instantly. How do I do this?

I need a full walkthrough of the macro, because I'm really new to this.

This is how it looks like in logic:

I would very much appreciate the help here! Thanks :)

you must of missed this post: Apology for Web site down

I believe we were to the point where you were thinking that you were having a problem of the OK button not being pressed, so I suggested using a different method of pressing the button (Button or Click step). You later said that it was sometimes being pressed, so that pointed at maybe the dialog wasn't fully up at the time the button was pressed and that is why it sometimes worked. Your Wait for Window step might not be setup correctly and that is why the button is being pressed to early. You could turn on Shortcut Debugging from the Shortcuts menu and step through and see if it is finding the window correctly or you could put a Pause step in its place that would be long enough to allow the dialog to be opened before the OK button is pressed (maybe 2 seconds - just trail and error).

OK thanks!

This is my macro at the moment:

1. Repeat 1 times

2. Type Keystroke CMD+R

3. Wait for New window ; wait for; Window, is, document window, frontmost, New

4. Type Keystroke return

5. End repeat

What do you suggest I change? I don't get it to work either way.

Like I said your step 3 Wait for Window is probably the problem. You would have to debug it and try to fix it or replace that step with a Pause step of a certain number of seconds so that the dialog has time to come up before the button in step 4 is activated.

Hmm, what do you think I should change here?

Actually, the whole macro stopped working now and I don't know why

guessing what you mean by "the whole macro stopped working" I would say you have the shortcut window open - if it is open the shortcut will not trigger. I would try and change the step 3 Wait for Window to a Pause step of a few seconds and see if that works.
