Keyboard Focus in the Project Window

The different zones in the Project window can be controlled by using key commands. To make sure that a key command has effect on a specific zone, you must make sure that this zone has the keyboard focus.

The following Project window zones can have the keyboard focus:

  • Project zone


    If you activate Divide Track List, the area of the project zone that has the focus is indicated by a highlighted and solid focus frame, whereas the non-active area is shown with a dashed frame.

  • Left zone

  • Lower zone

  • Right zone

If a zone has the keyboard focus, the border that surrounds it is highlighted in a specific color.


You can change the focus color in the Preferences dialog (User Interface—Color Schemes page).
