Is is possible to key or midi map the back to arrangement button?

I set a key mapping to my back to arrangement button, but it didn't work. Is there a reason for this? was it something ableton missed? Is there something I missed?

It would be really convenient to have this feature.

    I just tried it (using the "n" key, in my case) and it did work. Some of the keyboard keys are reserved, such as those which are used for the computer MIDI keyboard - that might be the problem here. Try some other keys, such as "n", "m", or ",".

    I usually just turn the computer midi keyboard off anyway if I want to keymap stuff. The toggle is at the top of the screen.


    Have a look at my Tip Of The Month for a great key mapping trick by the way.
