The selection group is located on every tab.

Note Type

Normal Note

Has a duration of whole note, half note, quarter note, 8th note, 16th note, 32nd note, 64th note or 128th note.

Grace Note

A smaller note used to indicate that it is melodically and harmonically nonessential.  The grace note does not contain the normal duration of a normal note.  For example, a whole note in 4/4 time takes the entire duration of the measure.  But it is possible to include 1 or more grace notes in that measure, while it is impossible to add any extra normal notes in that measure, even tuples.

Accidentals

The accidentals indicate whether to raise or lower a note by a half step.

No Sign

Flat

Decrease a note by a half step.

Double Flat

Decrease a note by two half steps.

Natural

Sharp

Double Sharp

Tuple Ratio

Custom Tuples

You may assign up to 6 custom tuples to your ribbon Quick Keys.  Furthermore, you can update the common tuples to any ratio you wish.  So in theory, you can have up to 11 customized tuples added to your ribbon Quick Keys.  You may change the ratio by clicking on the Tuple Ratio icon.
