Hi, just my 2p: 2D shuttle was almost impossible to control for me, as it was implemented before (in version 0.42 I think?).

After using the new set of facilities for zooming, keyboard navigation, and the track finder, I've to say I'm delighted. If I want to move to a different area of the sheet, it's a breeze. Better than shuttle imo.

in git a new 'track finder' has been added that is even faster then using vertical shuttle, but it all depends on what you want to do of course.

  • Activate the track finder: < K >
  • Start typing in the name of the track: select it from the popup list
  • the track will be centered in the view, mouse cursor is moved to it's track panel: you can start editing the track right away

Finding tracks works across Sheets.

Greetings, Remon

perhaps add an option to "preferences", where the user can choose a 2-dimensional shuttle, or horizontal-only.

Yes, we should probably restore the shuttle, but it needs be improved.

currently, [TAB] is an interactive horizontal scroll -- called "shuttle, i believe. didn't we used to have a two-dimensional shuttle?

i'm finding navigation around a large session (long timeline and many tracks) a bit cumbersome. if [TAB] allowed scrolling the sheet vertically as well as horizontally, we would be able to access distant points in the sheet quite readily.

anyone else missing the two-dimensional shuttle?
