I'm not sure whether this is an accident or intentional.
I'm using BB2017 and have just installed the latest build.
In the mixer, previously you could right click with your mouse on the volume and drag it up or down. Now it seems that when you right click on the volume you have the option of entering a numerical value for the volume instead.

Can someone please confirm this.

By the way, after using it for a few songs I prefer it to the previous option.

"you right click on the volume you have the option of entering a numerical value for the volume instead."

Best of my knowledge, that's the way it's suppose to work.

Left click for moving the slider.

In previous versions (E.G. BB2016) right clicking the mouse on the volume and dragging it up or down would change the value.
Either that or I'm losing my marbles crazy

Keith,

It now seems that if you want to drag values up and down (volume, pan, tone, reverb), it's left-click-and-hold that does it.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Noel,
Thank you; is that a new feature in 2017? I don't recall seeing it previously.

Keith,

I'm not sure. I've never played around much with this. I accidentally discovered it one day and that was about as far as I went. It certainly works very smoothly.

Regards,
Noel
