I was pretty sure that it is a REAPER thing and had nothing to do with contextual TB. Yes, I read the manual but sometimes get a bit overwhelmed and misled,
so sorry if you got the impression that I would be too lazy to work through the manual.

You mean that in the arrange view

And that in the midi editor

Simply my fault. I just thought of the TB but not about the context (!!!), dumb me, so obvious, sorry.

This is not really covered in the manual, but in the Reaper-Wiki. I did not have to set it up like this.
It worked by just giving it the right shortcut in the action list, thank´s Breeder.
I sometimes really struggle with the technical part. But I guess there are a lot of "non-programmers" out there.
Maybe the screenshots are of some help if someone searches for that.
