 German system question

For those who play German system: when playing Db4-Eb4-F4 - how do you normally slide? I know there are several options.

Just use two side keys for Eb4 and F4. It is not difficult.

I've learnt to slide on and off the cross key (sliver key) but it took a while to get it. They are shaped better on German system instruments than Boehm but once you've got the knack you can do it on both, though there's little need on Boehm system.

This is where the Barratt action on the Clinton system shines. Then it's literally as easy as C-D-E

I don't have keys for those notes, so I just use fork fingerings ;-)

Alphie, are you playing German system now?

Liquorice, no not normally. I have access to a set that I fiddle around with.
