- If I do Shift-T and write “Sostenuto q=80” the tempo marking just disappears, leaving just the word and the inability to then add the metronome marking in the Properties panel
- If I do Shift-T and write “q=80” and then press Return and type “Sostenuto” a new mood marking of Sostenuto pops up, separate than the q=80
- The trick to getting my “Sostenuto q=80” is to Shift-T and write “q=80” and then go to the Properties panel and write Sostenuto there and click “text shown”
I don’t want this thread to devolve into a mood marking versus tempo marking debate. I just am hoping for some clarity on why a mood marking like Sostenuto brings up a different Tempo Properties panel than other mood markings. Even if the software is going to interpret the mood marking differently, it would still be helpful to have the same type of Properties panel (perhaps with more options rather than less to accommodate its difference), so one can add a metronome marking to the mood marking.
The issue is similar with Meno mosso and Piu mosso, one cannot add a metronome marking or a bracketed metronome marking reminder without a work around.
Maybe all this is solved in v.3 and this point will be moot. But if not… v.4?
