Ah, I think we have a different view. I wouldn’t want to change the number of steps explicitly when in this mode when the pattern length is defined by the total number of ticks. I my mind, the number of steps is simply defined by their individual number of ticks added up. As soon as this sum reaches the total number of ticks, this particular step is the last one potentially with less ticks then defined in its groove column. So:

Total ticks = 24

01. 6t sum=6

02. 7t sum=13

03. 9t sum=22

04. 2t sum=24: this groove column cannot be made bigger than 2: the sum is limited to 24

05. 6t sum=30: irrelevant, will never be played.
