two digit presses on keypad goes to measure number

The user should be able to go immediately to a specific measure in a piece by making two finger-presses on the digit keys of the keypad on the right side of the keyboard. For example to go to measure 30, the user presses "3" and then "0". Then measure 30 should be displayed and the music playback started at this measure (when the playback button is clicked on). If only one keypad digit is pressed, and the second keypad digit is not pressed within five seconds, then there would be no change in the current measure display/playback position. The entry "0" +"0" would go to the first measure of the piece, as would the entry "0" + "1". The range 00-99 is enough to cover the length of many if not most musical pieces.


You can use Ctrl + F and enter the measure number. Using the keypad is not an option since many computers do not have a keypad. Also this is not limite to 99 measures. So this will not be implemented. I closed it.
