Yeah, that widget is pretty clunky. I get “Upgrade” rather than “nudge” here, too.
The thing that’s worse, and in fact I’d like to report as a usability issue, is the fact that it can’t differentiate between the number keypad and the regular keys.
Consider the scenario of a new user coming from Sibelius. They’ll figure out pretty quickly that numbers are rhythmic values, and the Key Commands web page will tell show these numbers on the numpad. This bit undermines Dorico’s designed for laptops mantra, but isn’t so awful (as long as they have a number keypad).
Then they try to input a dotted note, using the period/full stop on the numpad.
It doesn’t work.
Then they go to the key commands web page and search for dot.
Oh. Not only does it point the user to the numpad dot, that’s the only key listed.
This isn’t a contrived scenario, incidentally. I’ve watched a new user (who admittedly may have been aiming to pick holes in Dorico), and I’ve tried to explain that the code doesn’t differentiate between numpad keys and regular keys. Unfortunately Dorico does differentiate, and doesn’t necessarily replicate the regular keys on the number keypad. By default Dorico does not have the numpad period assigned to dotted notes.
Please fix this
