I'm new to VEP7 and designing my first template from scratch.

I have dozens of instruments loaded up, and am now looking at them in Mixer view.

I select all instruments, then go to their output selection, then select Out 5/Out 6, and the first channel selected gets sent to 5-6, but the next channel goes to 7-8, the next to 9-10, and so on.

I see the help text at the bottom about using ALT or SHIFT. I've tried both. Some do nothing (i.e. I select the output channel, and nothing changes). Some do ascending assignments.

I just want to send them ALL to the same output, and I've tried EVERY possible combination of modifier keys and it doesn't work.

Please help! This is such a basic function it's frustrating me that it's not easy to figure out.

Hi, 

It's Shift-Ctrl Click. 

Here is a list of all shortcuts in the manual (I know, old-school). 

Best,

Thank you Paul; I appreciate the response.

It still doesn't work. I tried grouping, not grouping, shift-ctrl, shift, ctrl, and every other combination. Still doesn't work. Please see my screen cap video: https://youtu.be/cfeuEsocra4

In my Preferences > Server > Instances, I *do* have "automatically edit selected channels as a group" ENABLED.

Separate question: as per normal UX conventions on both Mac and PC, why can't I click outside the mixer (i.e. in a dead area) in order to unselected the selected channels? This is really counterintuitive.

Hi David, 

I just checked, and this specific shortcut only works when you have "Automatically edit selected channels as group" DISABLED.  

If I click outside the mixer area in a dead area, all selected channels are deselected, just confirmed with the latest version 7.0.1120. I wonder what's different there.  

Best, 
Paul

Correct, just confirmed this. Once I've switched this off in the prefs, I can now rubber-band group tracks, and ctrl-shift assign all selected tracks to a single output. This does seem like an odd behavior though -- I'd love to see it improved in a future version so the user doesn't have to worry about what the pref is set to.

I still see this but I believe it may be visual only:

1) Rubber-band-select several tracks in the mixer. As they are enclosed in the rectangle, they change color to a lighter color.

2) Click outside in a dead area -- they do not change color.

3) Hit shift-U to unselect -- now they return to their usual color.

Easily repro'able for me: https://youtu.be/IUCAW_0Y-0k
