Speaker symbol is missing to turn sound on and off whilst editing


Title speaker symbol missing Request "Play notes while editing" command be added to toolbar

For both 1.3 and 2.0, there was/is a "Play notes while editing" option in Edit / Preference / Note Entry. I am not clear on what this was supposed to differently than the toolbar icon, but they appeared to be independent - turning off the preference did not turn off the toolbar icon. I I sort of guess maybe that was a bug that was fixed by simply removing the icon fro the toolbar. But I dont know the story.

In 1.3, both appear to toggle it during a session; the only difference I see is that the Preference is remembered on the next session. Seems actually the toolbar button should have been *disabled* if the preference is turned off, since the toolbar button then has no effect.

I guess for me, either way, this is a seldom used command - if I don't want to hear sound while editing, I probably don't want to hear sound *period*, so I simply mute my speakers. So with the new toolbar buttons for 2.0, I can see why this one might have been removed as a bit superfluous given that fact and the existence of the preference.

Ultimately, it would be nice to have customizable toolbars - the ability to place icons for *any* command on the toolbar.
