How to write to Note Column Index if in Effect Column and vice versa?

Hi, I’m trying to set up shortcuts so that even if I’m in the Effect Column Index, I’ll be writing to the Note Column Index. I’m unfortunately unable to do this - do I need to maybe just detect that i’m in note column instead of effect column, and use the note column index for effect column writing?

what i’m trying to get at is - should the “current note column index, before going to effect column index” be read by a notifier somehow and then that notifier-written-place is read while in effect column and that way notifier-written-place is written to in the note column, and when i return back to note column, i’m in that notifier-written-place-index?
