Just starting to explore Dorico and very pleased to find a complete new approach to Music notation which I very much like.
Looking at the layout and key-commands in Write mode, I see that the numeric keypad commands can be customised.
In exploring the customisation of keys (for now in the Write mode) I was wandering what more experienced users have found to be the optimal customisation for the numeric keypad and the rest of the keyboard.
Thanks for sharing your findings. I will definitely look into this and adjust mine.
For now my notation activities are mainly notating choral music and later on Jazz Bigband en some smaller groups.
I also find it very refreshing that most (if not all) commands can be performed on the keyboard and very scaresly use the mouse.
Here’s my adjustments, if it gives you some more ideas:
1 - SetupMode
2 - WriteMode
3 - EngraveMode
4 - guess what?
NumPad set to Sibelius’ shortcuts for notelengths
NumPad + - : grid size
F10 - toggle PageView/GalleyView
F12 - toggle Panels on/off
Ctrl+3 - write triad (needs some twerking in json file)
Alt+F1 to Alt+F3 - special Texts such as Cue Text, custom ones,…
Alt+Shift+1 - move to voice 1
Alt+Shift+2 - move to voice 2
some more adjusted shortcuts to select Lyrics, Chords, etc…
Reading @darkraider’s shortcuts I think I’ll add some of his!
