Maybe there’s a misunderstanding. All I was asking for is to find out if there’s some other way to accomplish what I was asking. It was a simple yes or no question and an attempt to get a simple answer. Isn’t that why we’re all here, to help each other? And I know if I thought about it, I can’t be the only one out of thousands of users. Maybe the only one bold enough to say something?
By-the-way, I am a developer and work in I.T. at Wells Fargo, so I am very tech savvy and write code all the time and the feature I’m asking for is not complicated. It would be an extremely easy thing to add. And they wouldn’t have to “drop everything” as you’re asserting. This is a simple five minute thing to make Dorico more user friendly.
Dorico developers and trainers in the videos are constantly pushing for us to lean heavily on the key commands, so why not add yet another one?
Everyone has different ways of working and what works best for me may not be your preference. It was not difficult to write the AHK script to do what I wanted to do. It’s useful, for instance, if you don’t to want to worry about accidentally hitting a key on your music keyboard when you’re working with the mouse and your computer keyboard. Yes, I know I could press undo (ctrl-z), but it’s just as easy to turn MIDI input off and not have to worry about it until I need it.
It’s all about flow right? I hit ctrl-m and instantly I toggle from MIDI input to not allowing MIDI input, it takes a split second to switch back and forth, versus, pressing ctrl + , (comma) and using the mouse to check the box and then clicking ok. That’s three actions versus one and that improves my flow and saves me time. No, I don’t do it all the time, but it’s so nice to have a key command to make things flow more smoothly.
