Shortcut: Add treble/bass clef

• Jul 28, 2020 - 00:55

The shortcut Ctrl-Y, Ctrl-1/Ctrl-2 does not work on my computer, or can I say, it is not efficient. As soon as I press Ctrl-Y, it REDOS and action and Ctrl-2 creates a tuplet. I do not know if this is a regression or what. This is a good shortcut and I am certainly not willing to manually search for the clefs.


You can redefine this shortcut to something that is better for you in Edit>Preferences>Shortcuts:
Clear the shortcut for Add Treble/Bass Clef, and define the shortcut to something that is better for you.

If you use Windows, you can also look into this forum post (, which describes how to create shortcuts for any palette item using AutoHotKey (which is free).

You can also customize your palette to hide all the crazy ones you don't use. Or create a whole custom palette with just the symbols you do use a lot - even things taken from different palettes - and then just leave that one open.
