This is a bit of a bugbear if mine, both in Dorico and Sibelius before it. I accept that it’'s perhaps unlikely to change, but I really wish it could.
The issue is the act of selecting notes being included in the Undo sequence. If I’m editing a bunch of notes, and then decide to undo several actions, the number of times I have to hit undo is far greater because it not only goes through the “hard” actions (shifting, deleting etc) but also every note or notes I selected or deselected during that process, which to me feels unnecessarily cumbersome.
Maybe others find this useful, but I can’t think of many other programmes that do this, and I’d much rather undo dealt only with actions that actually directly impact (i.e. make a change in) the score. Or alternatively, an option in the preferences menu to disable this behaviour. It currently takes twice as long to undo multiple actions.
While I’m on the subject of multiple undos, is there any chance of an ‘undo/redo’ list, in order to better facilitate this?
