I can’t get the key commands Ctrl-1 or Ctrl-2 to activate the Commands or Go To modes in the Jump Bar. When I press either one with the Jump Bar visible, nothing happens. I’ve already checked the Key Commands preference pane and there don’t seem to be any conflicts, nor are there any conflicts in my Mac’s main Keyboard preferences. What might be keeping these commands from doing their job?
(While we’re on it, is there a reason the Mac and Windows key commands for this function are so disparate?)
Same issue here on two different Macs (my post on the issue came after yours). I tried changing the key commands and neither of them did anything. It is as if the Jump Bar buttons are not receiving any key commands.
Oh I just found something. When the Jump Bar is on screen and I press Ctrl-1 and Ctrl
2, the Write menu flashes, as if there’s a command in there that’s being activated. I hunted through and there’s no such shortcuts listed. But: a while ago I appropriated 1 and 2 for increasing/decreasing the rhythmic grid (somebody’s fine suggestion on this forum)—both commands that are in the Write menu—and I can see now that the rhythmic grid is indeed changing when I type Ctrl-1 and Ctrl-2 with the Jump Bar on screen. So the 1 and 2 key commands are overriding Ctrl-1 and Ctrl-2.
Same issue here, and I also use 1 and 2 for the rhythmic grid, probably the shortcuts I use more than anything else.
I’ve been trying to substitute other shortcuts for Commands or Go To in the jump bar, but so far I haven’t found anything that works.
EDIT: Now I am also finding I can’t manually reset these two commands (control 1, control 2). I supposed I could try resetting all keyboard commands, but I have lots that I’m using and I’d rather not reset to factory.
Damn. I still think tab would be better if they could substitute something else for the function tab is currently filling. Luckily for me, I almost never need to use the GT feature, so it doesn’t matter too much to me. Thanks for the link though; I had missed that.
Whaaa…??? In every Mac app it’s Cmd-W to close a window, and in Dorico it’s not? Have I never tried closing a window in Dorico before today?? I must not have because Cmd-Shift-W works just fine. It looks like Cmd-W closes an open tab. How did I not notice this before?
Dorico is not alone in using Cmd-Shift-W to close. In Logic Pro, Cmd-Shift-W closes an open project. I interpret this as a way to make sure you really want to close your project; I think Dorico has worked this way since version 1.
