Return selection to a note after ending a slur/line/hairpin

I prefer to use the keyboard shortcuts when I can. So if there is a way to remain editing after I add a slur or line type. For example. When I enter a slur. I select a note, I hit S, hit spacebar to the length I want, and hit Shift S to remove the slur. Wonderful! so fast. But now when I want to enter the next slur I have to select a note with the mouse again. If when you hit Shift S, the note remained selected then ...more »

Bugs

Improvements in cross-staff notes

When doing cross-staff notes, there are two big problems

 

1. If there is another voice at the same time, which is in a distance of a 2nd, the notes collapse in the same space.

 

2. The slurs are just illogical and they don't cross staff, it has to be made manually

Editorial Slurs (with a 'tick')

Could it be made possible to alter slur properites to show a tick in the middle of the slur to indicate that it is editorial. This could be a switch or tick box in the Inspector.

 

This would be very useful for people who have to prepare editions or other strict rules of engraving.

Bring back multi-arc slurs

Perhaps not as a direct reincarnation but as a locking handle that can be used to join slurs together for complex shapes. If the slurs could adopt to their new state with a unified line thickness so the ends don't taper at the connecting joins, that would make my day.

 

Alternatively just include a pen tool a la Illustrator so we can draw our own custom lines with beziers and splines.

Improve spacing of grace notes and their slurs

Scores with many grace notes take huge amounts of time to correct by hand. Some grace notes collide with each other or with the parent notes, while other grace notes are ridiculously far away from other grace notes or their parent note.

 

When slurs are added to grace notes things get even more ridiculous, in some cases it is impossible to manually set the correct position of these slurs.

automatically add slurs to notes when text melismatic

It is a common rule that a slur is attached to notes when the lyrics are melismatic.

Being that one will always have to do so, why not implement a feature to add slurs automatically. Sure, it should be possible to enable/disable this function in the preferences or where-ever it supposed to be.

 

Please note I wrote syllabic but meant melismatic. I have changed this on 25-01-2013

step thru handles of a slur

It might be very clever to be able to step from one handle of a slur to the next all way around.

 

You quite often have to do some adjustments on slurs to give them a better shape or to avoid so called "blitzer". When slurs are too small it can be tricky to "catch" the handles.
