Default tip o' the day

[edit] Link to user-editable tips list: here! Thanks nofish for starting it.[/edit]

Reaper isn't going to get one of those "tip of the day" windows that exists only in order to give you something extra to click before you can use the program.

But if there were a list of short+sweet Reaper tips, what would you put on it? Brief suggestions for how to use features that many users may not be aware of, etc? Here are a few:

- Alt+drag a media item to slip the content left or right without moving the item itself.

- Right-click on empty space near the main toolbar to customize the toolbar by assigning custom actions and icons to different buttons.

- Shift+drag over existing data in a MIDI CC lane to create linear ramps.

- Press "?" to open the actions menu and a world of possibilities.

... over to you ...
