Select regions/tracks with keyboard shortcuts

I’m used to Cubase and Logic Audio where I can navigate the regions and tracks by using the arrow keys. Is it possible to configure Ardour this way? I searched through the keyboard commands and could not figure it out

Track selection can be done with Alt + arrow up/down. You can see those shortcuts by looking at Menu > Edit > Select … That also shows keyboard shortcuts behind each action.

Moving selected tracks up/down with Ctrl + arrow up/down.

Thanks, Robin. Is there any way to select regions with the keyboard?

There is no way to do that at present.

Ok, thank you. Is that something that could be conceivably added? Or is it a limitation of the toolkit? I’m considering learning C++ :grin:

It’s not a toolkit limitation (the GUI toolkit plays almost no role in our editor). Its just not something we make possible right now.
