I changed all my "Add fret (number) to TAB" to 'F,(number)' and thus I can use the short cuts:
1 - whole Note
2 - half Note
4 - quarter note
8 - eighth note
6 - sixteenth note
3,2 - thirty (you get the idea?)
6,4
1,3
1= is a breve
.2 - '..'
.3 - '...'
.,4 - '....'

And musescore reset to default on me :(
I didn't restart I just went away and came back and it changed after I already started using the new systemshort cuts I designed.
etc...

What operating system do you use. You probably don't have write permission for MuseScore to the directory where the shortcuts are stored.

You should have permission to write to your user directory, which is where your shortcuts are stored.

From the Handbook:

The other preferences (palettes, session, shortcuts, workspaces...) are in:

C:\Users[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\MuseScore\MuseScore3\ (actually %LOCALAPPDATA%\MuseScore\MuseScore3)

Talk to your IT and ensure MuseScore has permission to write to this directory so it can save your customizations. If this doesn't fix your problem, then someone else will need to get involved in this because MuseScore should save your shortcuts when you successfully close the program. I don't believe custom shortcuts are saved at any other time.

I'll add that I was ready to fork out way too much money for another notation program when I discovered version 2.0.3 of this program and was very impressed with its ease of use and features. There are a lot of people here willing to help make this a better experience for you.
