Transport Control in Cubase Notepad


Is there a way to start/stop playback whilst the Cubase notepad is open?

I often use this for notes and writing lyrics but it’s a bit of a pain having to grab the mouse just to start/stop playback

Thanks in advance

If you make one key command too open the notepad, you can use alt+esc to exit the notepad, so you can use the keyboard for transport.

You can use alt+tab to switch open window. Simple hit should take the keyboard away from the notepad.

Else it is mmc or midi control.

Thats about all I can think off.
