How do I do the following tasks via the PC keyboard entirely?
I'm currently testing what I think is a beta version of MuseScore 3.6, namely the one that's labeled "MuseScore 22.214.171.1247377422", here running on Windows.
I was very happy to find that a lot of things could be done entirely with the PC keyboard, without ever having to click the mouse. This is great because I work with some screen-reading software (that uses synthesized speech) and this idea of never touching the mouse is exactly what I need for using MuseScore with my screen-reader.
I was even able to compose a short fragment of music and hear my result, which makes it very promissing.
There are just a few things that I was unable to find covered in the documentation so that's why I'm asking here. I hope someone can answer my questions.
1. How do I, entirely with the PC keyboard, add things like articulation (staccato, portato, tenuto etc.)?
2. How do I add grace notes, possibly "after-grace" notes (those that sound very briefly, just after the main note finishes or even slightly sooner)?
3. How do I add dynamic markings, like "p" or "f" or the crescendo/decrescendo lines?
4. How do I add such a kind of arpeggio which can actually be heard in the audio playback?
5. Somewhere on the MuseScore Website, I've read that I can detune multiple instances of the same note by selecting the note and then choosing something from the corresponding context menu, which would mean, in my case, to first press either the Applications key or Shift + F10. However, when I press that keystroke, the context menu contains things like "Staff/Part properties", "Cut", "Copy", "Paste", "Edit Element", and some others, but nothing about tuning. I thought that "Edit element" might do it; but when I chose that, my screen-reader was silent. Am I doing something wrong?
Thank you a lot in advance.
