Adjusting Pattern Length

Hello,

For some reason, I am unable to adjust the end of my pattern by clicking the end and dragging horizontally in the timeline. The manual says I should be able to do this. I can click on the length and type in the parameters and drag my mouse wheel which changes the length my a full measure at a time. Am I missing something?

    It snaps to the grid, either change the grid size or turn snap off.

    Shift is snap overide.

    To adjust by dragging, make sure you mouse pointer is over the End “Marker”. It should then turn into a left and right arrow cursor… see page 319 of the Mk3 manual. Also, finer increments adjustments are possible by pressing Shift while adjusting…

    OK. So your answer partly works. I am not sure if that is because there is some preference or selection I have chosen to make the software behave this way. What I have trouble-shooted based on your comment, is that if the marker is directly on the beginning of a measure, I cannot move it unless I hold the shift button down. If the marker is in the middle of a measure I can grab it with the mouse and move it by holding shift down. I can even move it to a barline without holding shift down if it is already in the middle of the measure. This is what I have observed so far.

    OK, so now I see that I can move it by measure if I drag it far enough, even without holding shift.
