if I got whay you mean, you want to save the focus status (the orange(*) corners around the part of the application which currently has the focus) together with the view, so the answer is yes: just try it for yourself, those view recallers also store the focus settings
(*) in the default theme
there are only 7 storeable views, so the range is F1…F7
yeah. ive set F11 as accessing one of the views. what i meant was that even if i set a specific view to focus cursor to pattern order list, the cursor wouldnt go. i put the cursor in the orderlist and right-click on a storable view, but the cursor doesnt when accessing that view, go to the place i want. i’ll try it again,
ill try both the sample-copying focus and orderlist editor focus again… thanks heaps for your responses over a couple of threads already:)
the focus and the cursor are not necessarily the same thing.
talking about the default Renoise theme, the cursor is a light blue square around the pattern number, while the focus indicator is a little orange frame on the corners of the focused area.
I suppose you are trying to set the focus by clicking on a pattern on the pattern list, while you should use LALT+LeftClick on the list: notice the orange frame moving from pattern editor to pattern list: now the focus is set on the list! Now you can use the arrow keys to navigate through the pattern numbers
