Can anyone please enlighten me how to change the lengths of notes in the Midi editor?
I know it's possible to drag them with the cursor, but what if you want a note to be shorter than the time signature you're currently working in, if you're in 4/4 and want to enter a 1/16 note...?
I have previously been working with Cakewalk Plasma, and in that program you could just click on the note value you desired.
Hope someone out there can help me out, as it currently prevents me from buying Tracktion, and I REALLY want to!

To make a note shorter/longer use the pencil tool. hoover a note-event and you will see it changing to a double arrow
The Grid ( and snap/quantize) resolution is depending on the zoom level. e.g. If you zoom in, your resolution will get higher, if you zoom out the resolution will be less refined.
The solution is to zoom in and you will be able to enter smaller note lenghts.
It's not possible in T to set some kind of resolution that will be used no matter the zoom level.
Strange, I know

At the top of the screen the resolution will be displayed as you zoom. It's a little complicated, but if you are in 4/4 time; 1 beat =1/4 note, 1/2 beat = 1/8 note, 1/4 beat = 1/16 note, etc.
