FR: More toggle key commands

I would find it really useful if I could set a key command to toggle between the on/off status of some things besides what’s available:

  • Changing the filter between selecting/deselecting
  • linking/unlinking
  • grouping/ungrouping
  • changing notes to cue size
  • slash region show other voices



For sure

I’ve discovered that I can toggle between local and global properties scope using a key command but I’m not having any success assigning a “function” key command… I’ve tried F17. It registers in the Preferences but doesn’t trigger the action.


See this thread from June 2021 for some discussion on the matter.

Thanks mate. I did some searching but didn’t stumble on this one.

Another helpful key command would be “Change Voice to New Up-stem/Down-stem Voice”.

Sorry for the bombardment… is there somewhere else I should be posting these?

No; this is as good a place as any.

I also think Dorico should go more towards toggles instead of two key seperate key commands. The introduction of the toggle for Page View/Galley View was a good step in that direction, but there are some things left, e.g. toggling between Commands and GoTo in the jump bar with Tab or something.

The thing with the voice is already possible if you are familiar with scripts, @DanielMuzMurray :
local app=DoApp.DoApp()

The same is possible for resizing notes to cue size:
local app=DoApp.DoApp()
app:doCommand([[UI.InvokePropertyChangeValue?Type=kEventScale&Value=string: “kCue”]])

Thanks @Asacius, I use the cue one often!

ShiftV does this.


Well well well…

I woke up this morning and told myself,


@Romanos has helped me save some face
