Cleanup Audio Tab - Horizontal Scrolling
« on: June 28, 2021, 08:12:15 PM »
Is there an assigned keyboard key that'll let me move the horizontal scroll thumb to move along the recording? Did have a look through help and couldn't see anything. If there isn't one, it would be useful (to me at least).

Hi,

The left and right arrow keys should do it.

Somehow I sent the post without the important bit, that I want to move a 'page' at a time. Perhaps ctrl + arrow key or something.

FWIW I've fund a workaround using something called AutoHotkey. I started using it because I wanted to disable the capslock key before I did physical damage to my keyboard. It's been useful for all sorts of other things since...

It can send windows messages to the cleanup display to have it horizontal scroll a page at a time when ctrl + < > are pressed. Like this:


; Page right - Press Ctrl+>
^>::
ControlGetFocus, FocusedControl, A
SendMessage, 0x114, 3, 0, %FocusedControl%, A  ; 0x114 is WM_HSCROLL 3 PG_RIGHT, 2 PG_LEFT

return  ;

; Page left - Press Ctrl+<
^<::
ControlGetFocus, FocusedControl, A
SendMessage, 0x114, 2, 0, %FocusedControl%, A  ; 0x114 is WM_HSCROLL 3 PG_RIGHT, 2 PG_LEFT


Neat I thought. I still have to click on the window to ensure it's the one with focus to start, though I'm fairly sure I could write more script to sort that out too...

OK, glad you have a workaround.  I do agree with you that this should be built into VinylStudio, it's on the list (somewhere).
