It would be really great if while entering dynamics one could add a hairpin or two and then finish entering the dynamics on the far side. I realize they are different object types, but what if a shortcut from within Expression text input would close the Expression text box, add the requested hairpin, and then open a new expression box after and perfectly aligned. A super nice thing would be to allow stretching or compressing ...more »
A DS will not function at all if placed on a bar with a disabled end-repeat. Even though I have it set to play repeats after DS's: - Repeats after the DS are missing one pass; - When my "To Coda" happens on an end-repeat, the repeat doesn't play at all. Example: In the attached score, the end-repeat in bar 4 is set for 2 passes (play 3 times). It plays 3 times before the DS and only 2 after. If I set it to 4 times, ...more »
Clean up the search results:
- make the searched-for item bold, NOT its path
- remove all the white space caused by one result having a description
- Make the descriptions pop up when hovered over so it's a simple, readable list.
The descriptions could probably even stay if the whitespace were eliminated and the path (in bold) and item were on a single line.
When user defined shortcuts are added, display them in the 'tip' that appears when mousing over ribbon/menu items. Only default shortcuts are presently displayed.
So often I want to copy only the notes AND rests from a bar, but with chord changes, dynamics, text, etc. I can only quickly select the notes. Often that's enough, but there are plenty of times when a phrase begins with a rest that if included in the selection would make pasting much quicker.
It would great if when entering dynamics, if one could type them much like notes, etc. - If there were a shortcut from within an Expression Text field to add a hairpin cres/desc immediately after it, that would be hugely helpful. - Then after adding a hairpin, while the right handle is still selected, if the next added Expression Text would appear immediately after the hairpin, that would save much time as well.

Even when the zoom levels for editing and playback are the same, stopping playback always moves the screen and usually moves the currently playing bar off the screen. The manual says this doesn't happen, but it's getting tiring on the Version 7 now.
Make a housestyle editor so one can inspect a housestyle or change it without fear of unintentional changes when importing. It would also increase understanding of exactly which elements are saved. The ability to manage housestyles as a group would be helpful. For instance when re-saving a particular style to update it, you have to type the name out exactly to save over it. And without drilling down through deep folder ...more »
Make the plug-in list full so you don't have to first go to the right ribbon tab to find the the plug-in.
Implement a search field at the top, like the Mac Spotlight or newer Windows Start Menu to find things fast. Common ones can optionally sort to the top of the list.
If we're stuck with the ribbon, make it configurable.
Align the text so it's easier to scan for items. Justified Menus are very easy to read by contrast.
Make the pictures scalable. They are huge and inconsistently sized, requiring a larger, more difficult area to search.
Make the small configuration buttons at the bottom of sections larger and easier to click.
Add a 'constrain proportions' check-box to the Text Frame Height and Width fields so you don't have to alter 2 numbers every time a text size adjustment is required. For example, to alter the Coda and Segno graphics' sizes in Repeat/DS text independently from the actual text.
Alternately, add a font size option back in.
Make the Inspector's visibility a program preference. Right now I have to pin it up for every new score. I use it all the time and just want it to stay out.
