Minor user interface bug moving staves in Engrave mode (keyboard focus)

I have two monitors. On the primary I have my main editing window open, set to Engrave. On the second monitor I have the Layout Options window open.

I click the staff spacing tool to get the staff and system handles. I select a system handle. I use Alt-DownArrow to move the system. If I hit Alt-DownArrow multiple times quickly, the Layout Options window scrolls around. If I type slower, the problem doesn’t occur.

If I had to guess, I think while the system staff is actually moving, the main window loses focus for a moment and the keyboard is directed to the Layout Options window.

It hasn’t caused me any problems, but it is distracting.


I take it back. Sometimes if I type too quickly the program crashes out.
