Shortcut to start the lesson?

Post by oquinc » Mon Sep 03, 2018 1:45 pm

I learned from some older threads that the D above middle C can be used to advance to the next lesson.

It was also mentioned that some combination of keys could be used to start a lesson after you advance. But I haven't found one that works yet.

Is this possible on the iOS app?

Hi there,

You can use keyboard shortcuts within a lesson to advance between lesson segments.

C = retry; D = continue to the next segment.

However, I do not think this feature is available on the iPad app - but we plan to roll it out in the future, for sure. We realize it's a good feature for efficiency.

Thanks Andrew.

Yes, the C and D shortcuts are great. Unfortunately, I still have to reach up to the iPad and tap the Play button once I advance. That is the only thing that keeps me from controlling everything with the piano.

It's not a dealbreaker, though, and I'm glad to hear that it might eventually make its way into a future update.

Gotcha. Yes, that feature is missing in the desktop app as well.

It would definitely be a good add for the future because of what you're saying - complete control from the keyboard.
