Default note length for note input mode

I use the note input mode a lot. I type in a lot of eight notes. Is it possible, to set the default lenght to an eight note, rather than a quarter?


I agree there is something to improve when entering in,entry mode.
I would prefer that Dorico memorize the last value I used

If you have a note selected when you start note input, Dorico will select the duration of that note (so if you select the last 8th note you entered, then press Shift-N, note input will start and 8th notes will be selected)

Thanks, I understand. That still means, I do have to select that last note. I find it very quick to just set the cursor, wherever I want to start writing and the just press the key command. There is another thing that would speed up note input, but I will open a new thread for this.
