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.

This is indeed a known limitation we hope to address in the future. See for example #45576: Tie on same side of staff/ledger line as augmentation dot = collision, but also others

Thank you very much! I hope that maybe in the future, there will be a way to search through issues/feature requests so it will not be so easy to post duplicates.

There is a search on the issue tracker, but it can be tricky to find the right keywords :-)
