I just upgraded from composer 2.0 to 2.2 and discovered that the some of the keyboard commands had changed to make them more consistent, notably the piano roll commands (eg. 'Snap attack and duration to as notated' changed from [alt]-[down] to [s]-down). While I can see the advantage of the new system, it was nice to be able to perform the afore-mentioned snap one handed on my laptop keyboard. I guess it'd be nice to be able to define [alt] commands or to otherwise make use of the [alt] key so that I wouldn't have to move my hand so much around the keyboard.
Also, on a related note it would be nice to have some more convenient ways of setting the playback position. On a laptop [p]-clicking is fine (though something closer to the mouse buttons like [alt]-clicking would probably be more convenient for people with smaller hands), but on desktops and computers with mice, it would be nice to be able to set the playback position through the context menu or by double clicking (double clicking barlines?). In any event, I guess being able to set the playback position with only the mouse would be a nice feature in a future release.
Keep up the good work.
