How I would like this see this working
Assuming I am not alone in thinking that the current default view is not preferred in any way over scroll view, keep the menu as is but instead of having the view break the stuff do it continuously like I proposed
If you want to be “backward compatible”, extend that check box into a “multiple option radio button” like this:
Where Page View is the current “Page Mode”, “Scroll View” is what I proposed and “Wrap View” is the current default settings.
Why the the work arrround is ideal
While it is better than nothing, and I’m definitely going to use it , It’s not ideal for several reasons:
- It’s difficult to get the “right” height to accomplish it without cutting some of the symbols off screen. Especially when the staff height depends on the content:
(In the xample you see the low A as well as the Pedal symbol. Requireing more space.)
- The maximum height I can achieve with this window docked is limited, compared to separate window:
This is gonna be problematic with working with many instrument (I don’t think I can fit an orchestral stuff easily in that space without having to reduce the font size to a level it’s hard to read).
Of course I can open it in a new window and minimize it, which is better than nothing, but still not ideal.
- When using this window docked I can’t access the very handy properties right side bar. (Not sure if that’s on purpose or a bug, if it’s a bug feel free to delegate to Steinberg)
