I might have overlooked something here, but is there a key command option for jumping to the search field in the properties panel?
There isn’t at the moment, no. In Dorico 3.5 you could use Alt+8 to put the focus there, but unfortunately that doesn’t currently work in Dorico 4. It’s something we want to restore when possible.
Thanks Daniel, and no worries, it’s just a mouse-click away really, and I’m yet to utilize the full power of the jump bar.
