Just thought I would write and ask… am I the only one having an issue with arrow key navigation
It just doesn’t make any sense to me—
- How the selection jumps from note to note to dynamics to slurs to other things, then suddenly across many bars to a tempo marking, then across a hairpin to another note, then… aaaarrrrgh
In the following example, my mouse is pointing to where I think the selection will go before I press the up/down/right/left arrow keys.
Navigation with arrow keys
Daniel has explained before that the selection is graphical, i.e. whatever item is closest to the current selection is what will get selected next, but that doesn’t seem to work for me because sometimes it skips items and other times it selects what I don’t deem to be “closest,” counteracting what would be intuitive to me. Thoughts?
- How, when attempting to select a chord, the range automatically extends beyond the staff into the other staves, selecting those notes as well. How do I select a chord when one of the notes of the chord is selected, without selecting anything else?
Selecting a chord with SHIFT+arrow keys
Sibelius had a nice feature, “Select More,” which would accomplish this—and in Dorico it could be used to select other items as well, e.g. all dynamics in a group (select one, hit a shortcut key, done!) Do we have such a feature available yet?

Selecting a dynamic group with keyboard shortcuts
Note: My desire is to use the mouse as little as possible, since I am “living” so much in the MIDI and computer keyboards.

Any constructive thoughts on these items will be greatly appreciated.
