MuseScore does not support footnotes
MuseScore doesn't have, the possibility to include footnotes attached to a note. Footnotes are important in annotated scores, where comments on style, technique, historical data, etc. are necessary. A footnote should be placed at the bottom of the page, immediately above the footer, and should always be on the same page as the note which it is attached to. If for any reason after an edit the measure containing such note happened to jump to another page, the footnote should move along to the new page. Ideally, footnotes should suppoprt images.
One property of footnotes could be autonumbering according to several optional stlyles: arabic numbers, roman numbers, low case letters, capital letters or some type of symbols, and would be enclosed between brackets (or another custom method). Parts should inherit the footnotes originated in the part but visibility should be optional.
Came up again in #302979: Add footnote capability and earlier on https://musescore.org/en/node/286481
The footnote is still a missing feature.
Most importantly, the footnote needs to be on the page referring to it. In a score with two words readers may need help pronouncing, I put a * after each word, then added a horizontal frame at the bottom of the page, but if later score changes affect pagination, I'll need to move the frame manually.
Now that it has been announced that MuseScore will turn from just an engraving application to also an aid for composers, footnotes should be taken more seriously since contemporary music composers very frequently use footnotes to explain performance details.

I consider footnotes a basic feature of any music engraving system, so I would greatly appreciate it if this issue could be given a higher priority.
