(minor) Can't use tilde key as shortcut

• Feb 22, 2023 - 03:53

(MS v4.0.1.230121751)

I wanted to assign the tilde (~) key as a shortcut for "Zoom 100%", as I often use that command and wanted something that was easy to find and required only one hand (vs. the default Ctrl+0). MS lets me assign that key (shifted or unshifted), but it has no actual effect.


Putting it directly into %LOCALAPPDATA%\MuseScore\MuseScore4\shortcuts.xml works:

Consider me impressed, Jojo! I'm glad to know such a thing's possible.

As it happens, I used Ctrl+Spacebar (which I also didn't realize was possible, till I tried it), and that's very quick. And because it's such an overarching, continually used function, using the biggest keys is a good mnemonic. 😊

Do you have an international keyboard option enabled where ~,`,'" and other keys are dead-keys that compose with the next to form letters like ñ,ò,ä etc? MuseScore has an " interesting" relationship with such keyboard options on Windows...
