  • Nudge Nudge!

    The default keyboard has a set of very useful "nudge" commands mapped to four of the keys. Newcomers might miss these in their initial meeting with MC. Maybe you can find some use for them! Regards, Douglas The playback screen can be maximised by using the "Full-screen" button in...
