Ties collide with notes and ledger lines, no automatic adjustment made to note spacing

Firstly, if there is any way to avoid clutter by posting duplicate feature requests etc., please let me know. All I could see was nearly 300 pages of feature requests that I couldn't sort through manually. I don't want to make anyone's life more difficult. :) Also, I am not sure if this is a bug or a feature request.

Anyway, when certain chords are tied together, collisions are occurring between ties and 1. flags, 2. noteheads, and 3. ledger lines. It seems that MuseScore's automatic placement feature does not recognize that these collisions are occurring, and it takes a long time to manually correct them. I have attached a sample of the same music in MuseScore and in Sibelius, which manages the engraving nicely. All the ties have the same start and end x-value, and there are no collisions with the ledger lines. The sixteenth note has been moved back so there is more space. It would be great to see a feature like this in MuseScore.
