Probably a big ask if you’re not already thinking about it (and am feeling increasingly arrogant asking for features like this - please do my bidding, developers!)
It would be great if there were more Engraving panels, probably on the right hand side, specifically for Paragraph/Character Styles and some Layout Options. For paragraph styles it would be especially helpful if it worked a bit like Indesign, with the text updating automatically without hitting “apply”, and a preview of the font in the drop down menu.
If not that, then a “live preview” checkbox that allows you to see the changes as you make them in the Layout Properties, Paragraph Styles panel or similar (and to turn off the feature if it takes up too much juice).
it would be an amazing feature if you could apply “Style sheets” to flows in the same way as you can with text (e.g. paragraph, charater styles). So that you could determine not just music font independently but stave size, notehead size, display properties, transposition, all sorts independently of the global Layout Options.
-Maybe not a feature request, but I am struggling a bit with flow headings being tied to flows and not being able to meaningfully measure the space between the flow heading and the stave. In the below example I’ve pushed flow heading number 2 up to give it some more space around it, then tried to move number 1 up to follow suite, but am limited by the flow frame. I want to move the stave (“cheese on beans etc.”) down to compensate, but it’s presumably a flow margin that I need to tweak, which is a global property, or just a manual stave height change, which means I have to adjust everything else manually too, which is sub-optimal. What I want to do is just drag the title up. I realise I can “hack” it by just creating another text box, but what I would like is a more useful way of achieving it with what’s there. Is there a way of seeing the flow margins for e.g. that I’m missing?
