Keymap to directly select an existing layer

Is there any way to not have to “cycle” through layers via Layer button, but e.g. keymap some Modifier-key + 1-8 num keys to directly switch to a Layer?

+1! I have also wished for this feature.

I haven’t got around to checking if this is similar to an existing feature request, and am full on with work atm, but it might be worth you submitting a new feature request to ensure that the suggestion is given some attention.

Good point, guys!

We could extend the current CUIA mechanism for implementing this, but as some of you probably knows, we are considering the implementation of a proper API in the near future. Anyway, you should open a ticket on our issue tracker, so we don’t forget this feature :wink:

Hi @zynthianers!

I just extended the CUIA system with 2 new calls:

  • SCREEN_MAIN (it was missing!!!)
  • LAYER_CONTROL %i

The second one allows to change the active layer and switch to control screen , but it’s not mapped to the keyboard yet. You can access it by:

  • OSC
  • MIDI

Check the updated documention:

Kind regards,
