improved multi voice and cross staff beaming notation + 1 other request
when working with musescore, 9 times out of 10 i have to use multiple voices, but whenever i want to implement it, i always have to create a note on the first beat instead of any old beat, which adds unecessary rest clutter. like for example, lets say i was composing a piece in 3/4 time and i needed to add a quarter note in the second voice on the 3rd beat because the first voice is obviously already used up. in order for me to do that i would have to either:
a. make a note in voice 2 on the first beat, delete it, and then finally be able to put the note where i actually want it.
b. use a note from voice 1 that happens to be on the same beat as the note i wish to implement into the 2nd voice and make it a 2nd voice note, revert it back to the first voice and then finally put the note i need on the beat.
method a results in a lot of rest clutter. method b is just tedious, and sometimes results in rest clutter. both are generally tedious and impractical to be honest. itd be a lot easier if you could just add a note into a different voice on any beat instead of being forced to start from beat 1 and then apply one of the two methods i mentioned above.
not just that, but another problem with those methods is that they require precision. if you mess up while applying either method your score is gonna look really bad. so itd be nice if this was improved upon.
as for improved cross staff beaming, using ctrl+shift+ the up or down arrow can get really annoying if you're like me and use musescore a lot. i cant begin to express how many times ive had to use cross staff beaming before whether im transcribing someone else's composition or writing my own. it kind of wears your hand out doing it so much. i think it would be much better to be able to cross beam notes just by maybe like, using the keyboard command to bring down the rest into the staff you want to cross beam into and then go from there.
hopefully smart layout in musescore 3 touches and improves this aspect so that you can write the notes you need without musescore adding it to the staff you are trying to cross beam into as a completely different note, but just in case id like to present this idea anyway.
also the ability to use all 3 pedals in piano music would be nice. like the una corda and sostenuto pedals. i know this is a biggie, but you cant sugarcoat the fact that a lot of pieces use those pedals, and even i use those pedals in my own pieces, so itd be nice.
