No, I am not "avoiding" you. Why would you make that accusation?
I thought that I answered your criticism in my first post. What you may have noticed that I was avoiding the "tone" of your comments. Which, in my opinion, go against the spirit and mission of this forum as set out in the FAQ's at the following link:
However, for the sake of clarity and factualness, I'll kindly respond:
"He instructs the user to uncheck (ie switch off) 3 system-wide key commands in [Keyboard and Mouse] System prefs. These are Expose commands but it seems that Steve has different defaults from those normally configured by Apple."
The commands I carefully chose for my zoom level tips are the same ones recommended by Apple in their official advanced training series books. Function keys 1-3 are perfect for this series of command because their numerals match the numerals of the zoom levels themselves. Also, I might add, that the factory function keys for Expose are F10-12, not F1-3. Besides, the Expose commands work better and quicker by using the "hot corners" which free up more key command opportunities for Logic! (being that Logic doesn't have hot corners!).
"Next, he instructs the user to use F1, F2 & F3 (plus cmd-F1 etc) for the zoom shortcuts. Fine, but he should have also told users that they may use ANY key combos they like which are currently unused."
-Well, since every advanced Logic user knows and employs the power of Logic's key commands, and, most likely, creates their own personal key commands, I thought mentioning this would be far too basic for a 303 level tutorial.
"In my opinion, this tutorial is a mixture of really good and really bad advice."
-That, Colin, was simply mean spirited. I refute your statement, based upon my explanations above, that ANY advice I give in these tutorials is "bad". Your word choices, Colin, are not appropriate. The content I include is carefully vetted and thought out. Quite frankly, I find your comments hurtful and insulting. Just because you, personally, may disagree with my suggestions doesn't make them "bad". And because I don't respond directly, point by point, to your criticisms doesn't mean that I'm "avoiding" you. Please don't underestimate the power of your words and how they may affect us here at macProVideo. And, more to the point, please don't "hijack" the thoughtful tone of this forum.
In this wonderful forum, where all of us who dare to share our Logic TNT's must feel comfortable and safe, the tone has to be constructive. This is not a place for accusations and harsh criticisms. Civility is key for the free and unfettered transfer of information. Disagreements are welcome, and I might add, spark interest in serious and exciting discussion. But rather than attacking one another, it works much better to offer suggestions and alternatives.
