Default Custom toggle action for default mouse modifier

Hi,

I want to create shortcuts custom Toggle (on/off) actions for some mouse default modifiers I am using frequently, in order to avoid reiterative menu opening. Mainly one I need, I tried creating shortcuts for activate "Select item and move edit cursor" (factory default" and a custom action for OFF, none didn't work, it stuck at "ON" status only. My gratitude for any help on this.

Thanks

These Mouse Modifier Actions aren't toggeable by themselves. You need to basically use two Actions in order to switch between them:

As example:
  • Set default mouse modifier action for "Media item left click" to "Select item and move edit cursor" (factory default) -- ON
  • Set default mouse modifier action for "Media item left click" to "No action" -- OFF

In this case after runnning the Action 'Set default mouse modifier action for "Media item left click" to "No action"' it would look like this:
  • Set default mouse modifier action for "Media item left click" to "Select item and move edit cursor" (factory default) -- OFF
  • Set default mouse modifier action for "Media item left click" to "No action" -- ON


In general for making toggle Actions have a look at using SWS Cycle Actions: www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjWpQXSyaVY
Which then would look something like this:

Set default mouse modifier action for "Media item left click" to "No action"

Great, I suspected it, just I was in the wrong making. I will try your directions right now. Cool.

Thanks for all of your info Solger, is gold to me! I just checked a post talking about the Cycle Actions, I didn't know. Despite my experience in DAWs I see Reaper is a different beast, with a curve not so easy at first, and although I like to follow manual in a logical order, I think it's important don't be afraid to move forward occasionally in search of information and back fed with useful data.
