[Solved} Entering unpitched percussion

for some reason, pressing “y” to input unpitched percussion dosn’t work for me.
Im using the English keyboard layout

any ideas?

When you’re inputting on a pitched staff, does Y work to input a note? It should input a note on the middle line of a pitched staff.

No, it dosn’t.

what key command should trigger it?

Have you considered taking a couple of measures from a file that demonstrates this problem and zipping it up and attaching it just in case that would help diagnose the problem?

here it is, thanks

qanunji, could you please do Help > Create Diagnostic Report and attach the zip file created on your desktop to a reply here? I think you must have mucked up your key commands somehow.

Attached, thanks

Your custom key commands file shows that you have deleted the default Y shortcut, and indeed a whole bunch of others. I’ve attached a zip file containing a version of your key commands file with this deletion removed, so that the default Y shortcut should work again.

Unzip the attached archive and put the keycommands_en.json file in C:/Users/Ariel/AppData/Roaming/Steinberg/Dorico 3/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Then restart Dorico.
