One more from me today! Rather don't think this is possible, but is there a way to target offscreen (not currently visible) items and unselect them?

This would help me because I have a set of "point and shoot" actions which target items under the mouse cursor with the action triggered on the keyboard (e.g. hover the mouse over and item and split it there with one keypress, no need to click to select the item first).

Currently they don't see any use because I must use the action "select item under mouse (leaving others selected) for these to work on more than one item, so often, items I had not realized were selected (because they were not visible) get split, muted, deleted etc.

Please let me know if this is not possible so I will consider other solutions.

Thanks!

I needed that badly too => IT ALREADY EXISTS!

you need these actions:
"SWS/S&M: Toolbar left item selection toggle"
"SWS/S&M: Toolbar right item selection toggle"
and (on Windows OS only ATM):
SWS/S&M: Toolbar top item selection toggle"
SWS/S&M: Toolbar bottom item selection toggle"

.. then the idea is to put those actions into a toolbar
=> when a selected item is offscreen the related button(s) will light up, demo here: http://forum.cockos.com/showpost.php?p=728774&postcount=315 => clicking that button will deselect offscreen items (and re-selects them on toggle).

note: you must enable "Main manu > Extensions > SWS Options > Enable toolbars auto refresh" for this to work!

+SWS/S&M: Toolbar left item selection toggle

Wow, this is awesome, but any chance to get those all in one? Ideally, all i needed was an action to "unselect any selected offscreen items." These toggles help, but for the actions I'm trying to create, I just wanted a failsafe to make sure there weren't any selected items offscreen. Possible?

With such an action, I could then use my 'point-and-click' item actions without ever having to worry about accidentally editing offscreen items. The toolare buttons are a nice reference, but I still need to check them before I use my actions.

Would be awesome if you could add such an action. Thanks anyway, you make Reaper rule.

good idea, of course!
done ( r982 ), will be avail in next beta release!

from the whatsnew:

new actions to detect and unselect offscreen items (just to unify the 4 existing ones "Toggle offscreen item selection (left/right/top/bottom)")

  • SWS/S&M: Unselect offscreen items
  • SWS/S&M: Toolbar - Toggle offscreen item selection
    This one deselects offscreen items and reselects them on toggle
