Ableton Live 8 input midi notes with a PC keyboard

Hi are there shortcut keys to input midi notes with a PC keyboard for Ableton Live 8? what I mean is, instead of double clicking in the piano roll, is there a way to use the arrows & a button to insert & delete midi notes ?

well once you've inserted one midi note you can press ctrl+d to create another one and i think you can use shift+arrow left/right to change the length of it. i'm not 100% on the 2nd bit though as away from my production machine and not able to check.

another useful keyboard shortcut is shift+ arrow up/down to move a note(s) up/down an octave.

ctrl and arrow keys does something aswell, possibly being able to change control for one note to another, not sure though, just mess around with the ctrl, shift, alt and arrow keys and see what happens.
