Ableton has updated Live 8 and Suite 8 to v8.0.2.


Improvements:
  • Updated manuals.
  • Updated help pages.
  • Dragging a file from the OS into Live’s file browser copies the file by default instead of moving it. When pressing the copy modifier the file will be moved.
  • Improvements for offline authorization.
  • Resizing tracks with ALT now only resizes tracks within the same level of the group track hierarchy.
  • Unfold all (ALT-click the arrow) now works only in the same level of hierarchy – “resize all” and “unfold all” works now either on “player and group tracks”, or on “return and master tracks”.
  • In Session View, group tracks provide a “track launch” button in map mode.
  • The fold/unfold triangle of a group track is painted blue when a track inside is soloed.
  • In the file browser, the “create folder” command is available in the “parent folder” context menu.
