Summary0001797: Shortcuts for directly going to particular event cells

Currently there's only one way of moving between event cells without the mouse not counting the Note Properties dialog, i.e. the left/right arrow keys. It generally works well but can be a little inefficient, esp. when you need to quickly move between relatively distant cells like note/effect param. This extreme case requires four key presses. It would be great to have separate shortcuts for jumping to particular parts of an event or at least a way of moving to the first/last event part.

This extreme case requires four key presses

This can be reduced to two by pressing Tab followed by Left Arrow (or the other way around by Shift+Tab and Right Arrow), so all cells are no more than two consecutive key pressed apart.

Having separate shortcuts for going to a specific column can still be beneficial though, not only to speed up horizontal movement but also to make sure that the cursor is in the correct column before starting to live-record some notes, for example. So I'll see what can be done.

I've added the new shortuts in r21113, soon available from - They are in the general pattern context, named "Go to note column" etc. Please let me know how they work for you as they haven't been tested much.

The new shortcuts are working great. Thanks a lot.

There was a problem with some overlapping key command IDs, so r21116 or later should be used. The already-assigned keyboard shortcuts will be lost when upgrading.
