I wish Noteflight would...

have keyboard shortcuts for rhythms when writing for snare or drums. Or am I missing something?

        Using the bracket keys allows you to avoid the mouse.

        To create two 8ths then a quarter note, you would type as follows:

        Note name (produces quarter note by default)

        [ (changes it to an 8th note)

        Next note name (value is set to 8th, so next note will be another 8th)

        Next note name (produces a third 8th note)

        ] (changes that new 8th to a quarter)

        etc.

        Does that help?

        We have the keyboard shortcut to enter pitches by typing the note name. I have a quarter note selected and hit enter then nothing happens. What do I type to enter rhythms? I understand using the brackets but I don't want to use a mouse to enter every sixteenth note on a snare drum.
