Default MIDI Editor Grid (Measure) doesn't follow arrange view (FIXED)

In MIDI Editor section, i set the following option ON

Quote:
Grid: Use the same grid division in arrange view and MIDI editor (41022)
It works with all Grid: Set to ... Actions, except with

Quote:
Grid: Set measure grid (40923)


MIDI editor doesn't change its grid to measure. I also can't find action in MIDI editor section to set the grid to measure.

It's quite annoying when working back and forth from MIDI editor to Arrange.

Thanks!

Grid to 1 and Measure are different.

They both coexist as options in the bottom of MIDI editor.

Try using odd meters (or other than 4/4), you might spot the different.

Well that doesn't make much sense. If 1 doesn't mean 1 measure, then 1 what? If I put it in 12/8 then 1 is 8? Damn, I really need to learn some theory...I'm tired of not being able to speak the language...

Same problem here. Working in odd meters (5/4) makes the Grid= 1 in the midi editor display one line of 1/4 and one grid for the other 4 beats. Works correctly in the arrange window. Please fix devs!!

It's not a bug. In your case, don't use 1 (1 will always mean 4 quarter notes regardless of time signature), use Measure setting. Then it'll be a measure-long grid regardless of time signature.

1 means "whole note."

Yep, which is always 4 quarter notes, as far as music theory is concerned (to my knowledge) - not 4 beats. In 2/2 time signature, a whole note would not be 4 beats, it would be 2 beats, for example.

Ah it makes sense now. 1 the same as a whole number; not a fraction. So 12/8 is a measure that's 1.5 whole notes because 8/8 = 1 (a whole note) same as 4/4 8/8 and 666/666. Right?
