(This thread fits into a few of the forum topics, I placed it in general discussion just because I don’t really know where specifically it should have gone)
Hi all. I’m constantly trying to find ways to speed up my writing process.
I have a specific layout in my writing lab where I have a MIDI notation input keyboard on my right side that my right hand uses and my left hand uses a standard QUERTY keyboard number pad to type in the specific note values. I’ve gotten it to the point at which I can play and write in real time due to my shortcuts that I’ve set up. I can probably best compare it to using the shortcuts on Sibalius. It’s a really fast and efficient way of notation input.
Then I go to input all the extra stuff (tremolo, dynamics, hairpins, articulations, etc.). I have maximized my efficiency with the new pallets system and have placed in a pallet everything I need and then just have to manually click and maneuver everything into the score. This is a bit slower than I would like. I would like to know if MuseScore has the capability for me to create customized shortcuts to input those extra score properties. And I do know that I can create standard shortcuts, that’s not what I mean.
Let me give an example:
I would like to be able to select a small part of a score and place in a crescendo for the duration of that selection by pressing Ctr (I’m a windows user) and then while holding down that key, type out crec, and then the hairpin automatically is places for the desired duration.
I hope that I’m making sense with that illustration. If this isn’t already a feature built-in, is there a plug-in that exists for that, or is there a potential of that being added in a later update?
Thank you all for your help.
