Typeface Variations don't appear in Text Style dropdown
1) Either open Format > Style > Text Styles or Inspector on any Text Object
2) Under Text Style, Font, attempt to find any Font Variation, for example Helvetica Neue *thin, *medium *ultra-thin, etc.
MuseScore does not appear to support Font Variations. In the dropdown menu it only shows the default style for any typeface. Yes, you can add Bold, Italic, or Underline to these fonts, but any serious designer would expect to be able to use the actual variations that often come with a typeface.
In my case I'm creating sheet music to accompany an album, and I need to match the typeface to the album. The album uses Eurostile LT Std Bold Extended 2, which is a variation of Eurostile LT Std that is extra wide and very particular looking. There's no workaround in my case other than exporting PDF, opening in Photoshop, and replacing the title with the correct font.

Further requests: Ability to adjust tracking, line spacing. Ability to change style of only selected portion of text (for example, highlighting one word within a text frame and making it bold, without making the entire text frame bold)
