Hello,
it would be great, if lilypondtool could make it possible to enter commands via MIDI Keyboard with the left hand.
(The upper octaves can be used as usual to enter the note pitch)
-change note or chord length
-enter rest or skip
-enter dot
-enter ~
-enter bar and new line
-delete character or last entry
-compile lilypond and show pdf
-enable or disable midi keyboard
So I don't have to switch to the PC keyboard all the time.

I programmed something like this in AutoIt and posted it in the german lilypond forum.

The application sends the defined keys to any editor.

In my script most the commands can be adapted easily in the ini-file.
