Hi again,
I  am slowly adding to my scheme script and I see that a lot of the default keybindings are ok. I am mainly interested in not moving my hands off home position.
A few issues I came up with.
  1. There are so many tuplet options even for triplets - toggle etc. I am not sure which to use - in the menu is start triplet end triplet, is the toggle.
  2. Also I want a way to move to the right octave without using the comma and apostrophe like a = a, and A=a but it starts the record scheme script...
  3. There are also so many options for grace notes, I am not sure what to use.
Thats all for now thanks,

Yes, of course. The default binds the semicolon to the command for
making a note (or selection) staccato.
