Logic 9.1.2: How key commands for setting Marquee selection borders to transients behave
The behavior of the key commands used to adjust Marquee selection borders to transients in audio regions has been improved in Logic 9.1.2. Here are some tips on the new functionality.
Logic Express 9.x, Logic Pro 9.x
The behavior of the commands used to modify Marquee selection borders based on transients are by default still assigned to the Left (←) and Right Arrow (→) keys to change the right border of the selection, and Shift + Left or Right Arrow to change the left border. New to Logic 9.1.2 is the behavior of these key commands when there is a single point Marquee selection. If a single point Marquee selection exists, the Left and Right Arrow will move it's position, while Shift + Left or Right arrow will extend the single point into a selection.
The specific Key Commands that have been changed and renamed accordingly are the following;

The "Set Marquee Start (or Extend Point) to Next Transient" key command (default: Shift + →) moves the start of the Marquee selection to the next transient to the right.
Additional Shift + → key presses will eventually bring the Marquee selection start to the same position as the selection end.
If you continue to press Shift + →, the previous Marquee selection start pivots around the previous end point, and continues rightward as the new Marquee selection end point. This allows you to smoothly continue adjusting the same border without changing to a different key command.
As soon as you make a new Marquee selection, the key commands resume their normal functions.
