Default Hi, zoom shortcut i can't find anywhere.. little keyboard in main track page


I keep forgetting to ask you guys.. and someone here will know! Google has not helped me this time, probably using the wrong keywords.

In any case..

What i am talking about, are midi and instrument tracks in the main arranger page..

You see a little keyboard next to them..
For example, i am in clip view mode.
I have copied an identical clip to the midi track below, where the main track is at the exact same vertical zoom preset (medium).. yet, the midi notes within the clip look tony in one track, and large in the other..going into piano roll view and vertically changing the midi note size does not help.. as soon as i go back into clip view they revert...

This has to do with the keyboard I am sure..

On the track with tiny notes, the keyboard is tiny too.. like there are 6 octaves or something jammed in at once.. on the track with large notes the keyboard is large.. I need to work out how to zoom the keyboard on the left of the clips in the main track page.. I can't work it out...

(PS, sometimes when i drag a clip over, pro tools will automatically resize the mini keyboard to match it.. sometimes it doesn't.. right now i am literally looking at multiple tracks with identical clips for a massive pad layering, and all different KB sizes even though tracks are the same size themselves)

Thanks so much in advance!

Option+A should zoom MIDI to show all notes in the tracks. My MIDI tracks auto-resizes based on the note range of the clips, but I don't know why. It just works.
