Gesture to adjust selected tracks height at once

A gesture to adjust the tracks height of only the ones that we select would be very useful. Right now there is a shortcut for this, but a gesture is missing.

What problem(s) would this feature resolve?

At this moment there is a gesture to adjust height of the tracks all at once (this completely change the view where you were looking at) or one by one. It would be very useful to have a gesture to change the height of selected tracks. For instance, in a big project where you only want to resize height for 4 tracks and not the 30 other ones.

How does this feature fit in Bitwig as a product?

Better workflow.

Is there already an alternative way to achieve this on Bitwig?

Enable the shortcuts Zoom In Arranger Lane Heights (Selected Tracks).

Could it be implemented using Bitwig components or APIs, without Bitwig team’s support?


Could it be provided by a VST or something else reasonably integrated with Bitwig?


Are there other products that offer this feature?

Relevant links (optional)

There is already a key command that does this: It’s called Zoom In Arranger Lane Heights (Selected Tracks). But it would be even better if we could also zoom vertically with a modifier+scroll. There are other feature requests about zooming around here.

Oh thank you.
It works.
It would be nice to have it where you select tracks and just resize them the same way you resize 1 track as usual, it would save another shortcut to remember…

Yes, there is Shortcut to zoom vertically and others tagged with #zoom.

also, it would be great to be able to do something to a group of selected tracks like select inputs (the same or cascaded) instantiating sends (same or cascaded).

@noisanceritual do you still want to propose this as a feature request or should we leave it here? In any case, you could write to support@bitwig about it.

@noskrt that would be a separate feature request. :slight_smile:

I already sent requests to their email, they say they will consider but nothing gets done. It’s been a few years now.

I see. If you want top keep this request here, can you update it to say that only the gesture is missing (given that the shortcut already exists), please?

sure, i added it in the first post of the thread but i can’t edit the title anymore because it shows a disabled mouse icon.

Thank you, @noisanceritual. I have edited the request further for consistency, and I have moved it to #features.
