Keyboard Focus in the Project Window

The different zones in the Project window can be controlled by key commands. For this to work, you must set the keyboard focus to the zone that you want to control by key commands.

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.

  • Channel tab

  • 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).
