For instance, I can’t seem to find “Make Stereo Track” in the assignable keyboard bindings. Nor does it appear in the Macros list of items that can be inserted in macros, as far as I can tell. Likewise for “Split Stereo Track” in the same drop-down track menu.
I know I can drop down the menu itself with the Shift+M shortcut, but that doesn’t help me select the items much faster as they have no keyboard bindings of their own. I’d like to map them (Make Stereo Track and respectively Split Stereo Track) to “M” and “S” as neither of these key bindings are apparently used for anything else by default. Can I do that somehow?
Ah, ok, if you do use the Shift+M binding, then you can press “K” for “Make”, so it’s an emacs-ish combo “Shift+M, K”. These things are not revealed by underscoring them unless you enter that menu via its keyboard shortcut, i.e. mouse alone won’t reveal those, at least on Windows 10.
And for that Split the shortcut is “Shift+M, I”. It would have been nicer if they were more directly bindable.
(Aside: the “N” in that menu is bound to both “Name” and “Split Stereo to Mono” so neither will execute just by pressing N with the menu open, but it will cycle between them and you have to press Enter to confirm. On other windowing systems it might work differently.)
Still, I don’t know how to use the entries in this track drop-down menu in Macros.
