Is there a way to set a shortcut or other keyboard entry method to enable ‘dead note’?
You’d need to manually edit your Key Commands JSON file with the key command of choice. Do you know how to do this?
@DanielMuzMurray i sure don’t
Chapter and verse for this is in this thread from 2019. (Leo and Daniel S both posted detailed descriptions at about the same time.)
On Mac there’s a much easier way: You can assign shortcuts to Script menu items via System Prefs (AKA Settings) > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts. (See this post for details.)
