Volume and Tempo Sliders

In Version 0.9.5 you used to be able to move the sliders for the tempo and volume up and down using the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard. In 0.9.6 prereleases, the sliders have been changed and do not move up and down with the arrow keys, this makes it harder to get an exact tempo as it often jumps to one either side of the number you want.


Accidentally the input focus was not activated for all slider widgets.
They no respond to the keys Home, End, Up, Down (or Left/Right) PageDown and PageUp (Rev. 2430).

I had the same problem, couldn't set to 100%, it was either 99 or 101.

Thanks to werner for suggesting the keys to use.

Start with the Home key, and then Page Up. If you get to 95, the up arrow twice gives 100. But it's finicky, and you may have to repeat the process a few times to reach 100.

Developers should fix this bug, because the Tempo text setting will not play at the correct speed unless the slider is exactly 100%. It should not be so hard to get to 100. There should be a reset button that takes you right there.
