When I copy a MIDI clip and paste it, it always pastes the clip after the original location I copied from. How do I get it to paste the clip to the location where I want it to be? I already know about Ctrl+Shift. I just want to paste it where I put the cursor.
:puf_smile: Thanks

Set the playhead where you want to paste before you paste the clip.

Maybe the confusion comes from the fact the play head moves when you copy a clip?
Also, I’m unable to paste to a different track/lane no matter what I do. I can drag/copy to another track, but not paste to any other track or lane than the source no matter what I select before hand. Bug?
In some other DAWs, you have a selection that is separate from the play head, so Reason feels a bit odd in that respect if coming from one of these DAWs as I have done.

My thoughts exactly. :clap:

Yeah, I've thought about the same thing for a long time. The way to go about copying stuff like this is really backwards.
