[Trunk] No shortcut for 128th note

This does pose a problem though - all the single number shortcuts have been used (1-9), so you can't have a tenth one.

It is quite rare anyway, so it may have been a decision not to bother with one?

Using MuseScore 2.0 nightly build (4233) - Mac 10.4.11.


Perhaps we could remove the shortcut for longa and assign number 1 for the 128th note (2 for 64th note, etc).

The longa will feature in music more often than a 128th note, but I'm sure users won't mind, as it's not as common as the notes in the middle the toolbar.

Shortcuts are a precious resource. I would like to opt for no shortcut for 1/128 notes as they are rarely used. If someone absolutly needs it the preference dialog for shortcuts is made for this.

I dont' actually care, so I'm rting this minor as I reopen it, but I don't see any reaosn there couldn't at least be a placeholder for this in the shortcut list, so that a user who uses these a lot can create his own shortcut. I think *every single thing you can do* should be set up this way. A program that requires a mouse to operate is a program that has no chance of being used by blind users. Plus, it's just difficult to anticipate which operations might be commonly used by some users. Make some intelligent calls on the default shortcuts, but make it *possible* to assign a shortcut to everything.

I dont understand the problem: there is a "placeholder" in the shortcut list. You _can_ define a shortcut for 1/128 notes. Its only that MuseScore does not provide a default shortcut.
It should be possible to assign shortcuts to all commands. If something is missing, its a bug.

Status (old) active fixed

Ah, my mistake then. I misunderstood what was being said above, and didn't have a build that recent to test with. No problem at all.
