System and stave chords
1. Open attached score (produced in 1.3).
You'll notice that in 'Chords (Original)', the chord is based on the piano (also notice that there's no notes in the vocal aligning to it), but is placed at the top of the system. In MuseScore, the chord is placed above the piano, but I would like something that matches the original without having to move it manually.
(As a policy, I generally don't like workarounds, or having to make manual adjustments - partly because of this and that it could cause problems when utilising features, or in future versions of the software, etc. Exceptions maybe if intervention is required due to ambiguity.)
I don't know what the solution could be, but there's two possible options that I see:
1. Introduce two types of chords: 'Stave Chord' would apply exclusively to the staves and appear next to them (currently in MuseScore 1.3). 'System Chord' would apply to the whole system and appear at the top of the system.
I don't know if 'System Chord' would be perhaps something different from 'System Text', in that the latter does properly apply to the whole system (especially useful if you hide empty staves).
2. Right-click the chord and check a radio button: 'Position: Stave/System' (or something similar).
The other example ('Multiple chords in staves') is in F major overall (the same song from different publishers), but due to tuning of the guitar, there are different chords on each stave, hence why chords are needed at stave level. When comparing them, the F appears at the top 1, whilst in 2, it is at the strings - I'm not sure if the F in 1 would constitute a 'System Chord'.
Is there such a thing in other software, or whatever?
