When you're working in Logic, you will find a certain combination of windows to be particularly useful for certain tasks. In this lesson, we'll explore how you can store these views in screensets and quickly move between them with handy shortcuts. It's nice to make a home screenset of just the Arrange window that you can return to at any time. Go to the Screenset pulldown menu and choose Rename. We'll call this one home. Notice it's assigned a number, number 1. Typing 1 on your keyboard at any time will recall this screenset.
Now let's make another one. Type 2 on your keyboard. Notice we're now in Screenset 2. Now let's resize the windows to include a Piano Roll and Event List. Make our Arrange window a little smaller. Command+6 to open up the Piano Roll. I am going to put that beneath. And we're going to make an Event List, Command+0. That'll go on the right. Now let's rename this screenset in the pulldown menu. We'll call this one 'midi editing' because that's what we might use the screenset for.
Now, we've got Screenset 1 home and Screenset 2 midi editing. You can also lock screensets from the pulldown menu. Let's lock it. Any locked screenset's going yp have a dot next to it indicating that it's locked and it can't be altered. Now we can go up to 1, take us back to our home, or choose 2 from the menu and get our Screenset 2. Also remember you can use 1 and 2 on your keyboard to toggle between the two screensets. You can make up to 99 screensets for each Logic project.
To get to the double-digit screensets, hold Control down as you enter both numbers. Hold Control for example and type 79. We just made Screenset 79. You can also delete screensets from the pulldown menu. Let's delete 79. Make sure it's checked and hit the Delete. Now we're back to just 1 and 2. Screensets you make are not global to all projects. Just the one you are in. However it is possible to save them in your own template or import them from project to project.
So if you have a bunch of screensets that you like, just make a template out of that and you can start with that anytime you open Logic. Customizable screensets are a great example of how flexible Logic is to your personal needs as a user. Many fast Logic users use them to maximize speed and efficiency as they work.
