Feature request: Autoplay on "D: Next"

Post by maranite » Sat Dec 03, 2016 12:30 am

In the bootcamp, pressing the C key automatically restarts the lesson - an awesome feature.

When pressing the D key to go to the net lesson, the next lesson does not automatically start, meaning students have to go to the mouse or computer keyboard to start the lesson.

Would you please consider adding a setting that makes the "D: Next Lesson" feature autom start the next lesson?

Hi, that's a good idea, however, if the lesson starts automatically it won't allow users time to read any of the instructions...

We're going to be adding a keyboard shortcut to start a lesson.

If at the end of a lesson you could press the D key to go to the next lesson - and then after reading the instructions press the C key when you are ready to start the practice session that would be great. At the moment I can't press the C key to start a lesson the first time, only to repeat it.

The whole point is that it would be so much nicer to be able to control the computer from the musical keyboard without having to go back to the computer. I use a laptop on a music stand above my Nord keyboard and finding the cursor on the computer touchpad when I have to interact with the software is not ideal.

Thank you for a great way to learn the piano. I love it!!!

That's exactly what I am missing. I don't want a 100 times to go back with my mouse or touchpad to my laptop to start the next lesson. It's rather annoying. It would be much more comfortable to interact with the software directly from my Yamaha keyboard.

To start/ stop:
  • Make sure the correct keyboard size is selected in settings (e.g. 88key)
  • Press extreme upper and lower (music) key together

It would be nice if the Windows version can start up directly in projects view. Thats the view I use the most.

Hello everyone.
I am also looking for this feature. Memorize the capacity of the tank and steel.
Thank you

I have to agree this would be very helpful.

Actually, key activated toggling of all settings would be very useful.h

Often my keyboard/mouse are not in reach and having to take my hands off the keys to click buttons leaves me rushing to resume my hand position.
