Stave space size awkward to edit

The stave space size in Page Settings is awkward to edit. As soon as one deletes a digit it is replaced with a zero. To see the effect put the cursor at the right-hand end of the number then press backspace. The entire field cannot be replaced if highlighted and a new value typed. The only way seems to be to inset the cursor at the right-hand end, backspace to convert the least significant digits to zeros, insert again at the right-hand end, backspace to remove the zeros, then type the required value. That's a very awkward manoeuvre.
Same comments apply to delete, unless then entire value of the stave space is highlighted.


I think the technical reason for that is that that field is evaluated on every keystroke. That way you get to preview the result of your change immediately.

There are many place musescore refuses to allow you to type numbers consecutively, like the scaling in page settings. You must type a number, press delete to delete the next number enter it, press delete and so one until you have the correct number. I think this is an annoying bug.
