Old projects to LPX I get old view!

Postby Guy Johnson » Wed May 20, 2020 12:30 pm

Hi there, long time...!
I've a whole load of old recordings from an old version of Logic, opened in LPX I get the old style view - and no dragging/copying plugins, no automation track visible on L+R output, bla bla...

So, how on earth can I open/view a project so it displays in the LPX style?

Searched Logic, Google, Apple - and I thought of you lovely peeps :D

Logic will just open it as close to the last state it was saved in as it can.

I’m not really sure what you mean though. If you mean the Main Window isn’t open, then go to the Window menu, and choose Open Main Window.

Hi Desmond,

I get all the windows as usual. But the windows are in the style of Logic 8 or whatever I had then. Weird.
I've uploaded a pic - It's what I get from these old projects... If I have to work with this, then I'll have to, but it slows down the workflow!

Do you mean you are looking at the environment audio view? You don’t need that, just open up the main window or a mixer window.

The environment stuff hasnt been graphically updated much since LP7...

OMG, you're right.
The Dreaded 'environment' that I've always found gnomic and awful since Notator. I hadn't noticed the windows were labeled 'environment' ...
Back to normal. Thanks so much!
