Hello,

I usually use speedy entry with my midi keyboard. However, I just purchased a laptop and now I want to use speedy entry without a midi keyboard. The speedy keyboard shortcut for add note is enter. Unfortunately, I can't get it to work.

I click the speedy tool, select a measure, press caps lock, press a number to select a note duration, and press enter. Nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Paul

Pressing enter in Speedy Note entry will add a note at the pitch location with the cursor on a note you have previously entered to make a chord. It will also convert a rest to a note.

To enter a note using Speedy Entry, click on the measure, position the pitch crossbar then press a number key corresponding to the note value desired. For example 5 produces a quarter note, 4 an eighth note, 6 a half, 7 a whole etc

'Use MIDI Keyboard' in the Speedy Entry Menu must be unchecked for this to work. You don't need caps lock on BTW.
