Is there anyway to modify note duration after note input without leaving note entry mode?

I’m probably missing something obvious so please excuse me.
As of now I can input a whole note with note input (caret) for example. But if I decide it should be a half note instead, I have to exit note input mode, press the numerical key command to make it the right duration, engage note input mode again and then position the caret to where I was before to continue writing.

Is there a way to just change the duration of the recently inputted note without all these steps and without losing your positioning/flow?

Yes, you can easily modify the duration of the last note you entered without leaving note input, using Alt-Shift-left or right arrow, which will change it according to the rhythmic grid.

Or move the caret back to the start of the note, make sure Chords isn’t activated, and re-input a new note with the updated duration, which overwrites it.

Quite possibly not better or easier, just an alternative.
