When renaming multiple scenes via the context menu, the edit area will appear on the scene that you right-click and the scene selection will be preserved even if a highlighted scene was not selected.
The Expand Clip Detail View shortcut is only enabled when it makes sense, e.g., when a clip is selected and the Clip View is visible.
When collapsing the Clip View (for example by using the shortcut [OPT][CMD][L]) while it’s expanded and then re-opening it again, Clip View comes back in its expanded size as expected.
Clip borders are now drawn using opaque color to improve visibility.
Users will see shorter names for certain values (e.g. waveform shapes) in various devices on Push 2.
In Arrangement View, the right-click context menu grid setting options now appear as expected, even when there are various time signatures in the Arrangement.
When a new software update is available and your auto-update preferences are set to Ask Me, a link to the latest release notes is included in Live’s status bar notification.
Updated software texts and Help View lessons in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese.
