SP-16 Switching Patterns

After I record my first pattern I want to start a second.  I hit the "pattern" button and then select the second step button.  In the window I see it's now changed to pattern 2.  But as soon as I try to record (or hit play) it switches back to pattern 1, no matter what I do.  Arghh!  Nothing in the instruction manual about this, it just won't let me create a second pattern.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Um...nope.  At what point do I hit it twice?  Doesn't seem to work.  Pattern button only toggles on/off

I hit pattern button, then double tap the new pattern I want to create and it switches to the new, blank one. I am not in front of the machine right now but I believe that's how it works.

Doesn't work either.  I see the pattern change in the window when I double-tap but as soon as I hit play or record it goes back to pattern 1.  Crazy!

Hmmm. Maybe you have to be in play or record mode first? You can copy/paste pattern to a new one if needed. I will do that in general. Create a template pattern and then copy/paste that to all 16 patterns in the scene.

Aha!  Solved.  With the Arrangement button on it always goes back to the first pattern.
