    i use the edit button a lot while inside a block to go to the next block over, but going back is like 'layout-column-edit' or 'home-amp1-edit-edit' or 'exit-column-edit' and over the course of 3 hours i have A LOT of finger misfires doing all that poke poke poking around. i know everyone has their own workflow, but i would really like the ability to set the value knob push-button to be like 'control-shift-tab' on the browser, go back one tab...go back one block from the one you're in. editediteditediteditedit dang went to far editeditediteditedit

    Or something like:
    - short press -> toggle between layout and edit
    - long press -> go back one block in layout (in layout screen) or go back one block in edit mode (in edit mode)

    Context specific functions would be great, there's a lot of possibility for that push button. From inside any block, exit goes back to layout, don't see the need for a layout dedicated shortcut that's always right next to exit. It's still minimum three button presses to go back a block, if you've memorized how many blocks it takes to get back around it's legit quicker to do that, editediteditediteditedit

    context specific...

    In a block edit view:
    Short press, skip back 1 block
    Long press, reset parameter

    In layout view:
    Short press, customizable jump-to block x
    Long press, customizable jump-to block x
