(Steinberg “First Steps” - “Adding Articulations”)
This lesson states " The key commands for articulations use the four keys to the left of the Return key on the computer keyboard, "
However the actual Notes pallete indicates the following keyboard shortcuts:
The above keystrokes do work but they do not appear to be “the four keys to the left of the Return key on the computer keyboard”. Notably “Tenuto” requires the “#” key which is not anywhere near “the four keys to the left of the Return key on the computer keyboard”
Also, the lesson states “Combining Shift with these keys allows you to access the lower four articulations in the panel.” However the actual Notes pallette suggests other (unrelated) keys for both “unstressed” (@) and staccato tenuto (~)
Not sure what to make of this? Perhaps changes in Dorico Pro5 (which I am using)?
It will depend on your keyboard language. What language is your keyboard?
Thank-you. My keyboard is standard, USA desktop PC keyboard . Win 10.
Then indeed, you might want to go and redefine the tenuto shortcut to be the key immediately to the left of the bottom of the Return key. To do that:
- Go to Dorico’s Edit > Preferences dialog, then choose the Key Commands page.
- In the search field above the list of key categories, type “tenuto”. This will show the Note Input category.
- Expand this, then expand Set Articulation, and finally choose Tenuto.
- Now, on the right-hand side, select the # shortcut and click Remove Key Command. 5. Finally, put the focus in the field that says “Press shortcut” in grey, and type the desired key.
- Click the Add Key Command button immediately to the right to save the shortcut.
- Click Apply followed by Close to close the dialog.
Wow. That’s awesome. I will keep this reply for reference. Thank-you
