Problem solved

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

Hi, while you could in fact send mouse movement comments in conjunction with arrow up and down commands, there would be no way to guarantee that the pointer and mouse will stay aligned as Bome will have no knowledge of the true cursor position to send the proper mouse position. For instance you can use up and down arrow keys anywhere on the screen (not just the menu items and MT Pro would not know where it is.

Is there a reason you want to do this? Is the intent to click on the position of the cursor with intent on the mouse position being at the same place?

There may be a shortcut to achieve the intended result. (Like OPTION Enter).

In the video, he is just using enter to move the selection into the currently selected track. If you want to drag and drop the selection into a different track, then you would have to do this with mouse movements (or simulated mouse movement on your Xone K2) and not keystrokes.

You would have to know both the starting and ending points on the screen you want for your drag and drop operation. Then you could have set up a translator to go to the starting coordinates and press mouse down. The next translator would move to the ending coordinates (after some delay) and then issue mouse up action. Of course you would always need be sure the coordinates on your screen are always in the same place. There is nothing in MT Pro that can detect the current coordinates from the operating system although if you capture them after a MT Pro mouse movement, you should be able to track all the movements that are done by MT Pro only in global variables. Of course if you move the real mouse then the coordinates would be off again.

If you are running on Windows PC, I have a program called MIDIBuddy to detect mouse coordinates and send this information to MT Pro. But to me it looks like you are using Mac so that would not work.

If you want to use your Xone K2 is to use knobs to position the mouse pointer (not cursor) and buttons to generate click down and click up you would:

Move the mouse with knobs to the starting position and press the click down button. The move the mouse with your knobs to the ending position and then press the click up button to complete the drag and drop operation.

Sorry for delaying in responding, I clearly understand your explanation, but when it comes to replicating it in Bome, it is difficult for me to achieve it. Would you be so kind as to give me a demonstration project on how to do it?

I’ll try and get a simple sample for you tomorrow.

OK, try the attached

The lower left knob turn controls the horizontal mouse position

The lower right knob turn controls the vertical mouse position

I’ve set sensitivity to 10.

If also set a maximum mouse horizontal position to 1024 as global variable gc and the maximum vertical mouse position to 768 as global variable gd. You can change this for your display resolution by changing the rules of translator 0.2 (Init global variables) and then saving and re-opening the project.

I set the movement resolution as 10 pixels which you can change in the value of pp for translators 1.0 and 1.1.

Pushing down on the left knob will send click down only.

Pushing down on the right knob will send click up only.

To drag, you need to position the cursor at the starting position (in the browser menu) and press the left knob. Now you can move the cursor to where you want to drop it and press the right knob to release the mouse down button.

Let me know how it works out for you.



It works perfectly, really thank you very much for your help!

Glad to help! Could you please mark as resolved?
