Default Alternative way to Change Playlists?

Hey all - at some point in the past I remember working in PT and accidentally pressing some key on the keyboard and then either left or right-clicking on an audio region, and a menu popped up which appeared to be a list of the other playlists on that track. Since then I can't remember how I got that to happen, and I can't seem to find anything about it in the manual. Does anyone remember how to do this? It seems like it would be a much faster way to comp multiple takes than going back and clicking on the playlist button every 5 seconds. Thanks!

hmm .. i know Start + <- or -> will change the
track view (regions to automation etc.). i'm not sure
of one that scrolls through the playlists .. but that would
be pretty handy.

Sounds like you might be talking about the "takes list view".

Let´s say you loop record several times on the same spot, there will be several regions with the same start point, but you only see the last recorded region on the track. Now if you command-click (mac) or cnrtl-click (Win) on that region (with the region selector tool!!!), then the takes-list menu will show all regions with the same start point and you can switch takes.

I have never heard of a shortcut to change playlists.

I dont know of one either...

Takes: with 7.2, this is also accessible from a right-click on a region. A menu item, "matches" will appear, and regions falling within params set via Prefs will be available there. Very cool!
