User preference to configure action of space bar during Note Entry

I was extremely confused when I began using MuseScore 1.0 to transcribe a piece last night. Hitting the space bar didn't give me rests like it did in all previous MScore versions.

Today I was able to access the online manual and see that the key assignment was changed to 0 for a rest.

I propose that there at least be a way to configure what the space bar does during Note Entry. It is much easier to type A C E <space> than to type A C E 0, at least on the keyboards I use regularly.


See edit->preferences->shortcuts. These and almost all shortcuts can already be customized.

FWIW, I agree 0 is not well positioned, but I'm so used to space starting playback from, well, from virtually every music application I'ce ever used, that I have instead set semicolon to be my rest key. That feels natural to me.
