Key combination and shortcut list

Here is the V1 of the list. It follows the structure of the manual, so for more details just copy-paste titles and do a search in the PDF manual.

I think it needs to be simplified and made shorter but I’ll see later when I have time for the V2 of the list. Please let me know if something is wrong or something is missing and I’ll update the list.

For experienced users, do not forget to use the Help key (shift+0 or long-press 0). Almost everything is already written in these help screens.
For new users, I’ll hope you’ll find this thread useful :slight_smile:

HELP

message, and a note off message for every note, on all of the ports and channels that have MIDI
tracks.

Shift+Enter or Shift+Encoder: back-tab. Holding down Enter or the Encoder while pressing the Arrow keys or turning the Encoder also tabs forward and backward between fields.
Shift+Arrows/Encoder: Always scrolls the screen no matter which field is selected (when zoomed in)

I ll make this a “key combination and shortcut” list. Started to gather information yesterday and realized that there aren’t so many shortcuts to access menus but they are a lot of key combinations from the super obvious to the less obvious that are very handy. :slight_smile:

It seems that it’s not possible to edit old posts so let me add the 2022-02-24 shortcuts here :slight_smile:

(P22) -Bank+Mute/Solo/A/B: Toggles mute, solo, override or overwrite for all tracks in the current
bank at the same time.

(P44) -Arrows/Encoder: Change the value of the highlighted field. When editing slice,
Shift+Arrows/Encoder changes to the next/previous multi slice.

(P39) Added Bank+Arrows/Encoder in Step Program to scroll vertically by one track if there are more than 8 tracks.

(P46) Mute/Solo Bank
Bank+Mute mutes or unmutes all eight tracks in the current bank, depending on the state of the
mute button pressed. Bank+Solo works the same way.
