No, and, while we're on the subject of the Transport menu, does anyone
ever use the Page Down shortcut when in the "Continuous Page Layout"
or "Multiple Page Layout" modes in the notation editor?
Could you explain how I might obtain two new scroll actions for
binding Page Up and Page Down as useful new shortcuts
in "Continuous Page Layout" and "Multiple Page Layout" modes
as per my suggestion below?
